Saturday, June 8th, 2013 Focus: I choose to develop patience — patience is the antidote to anger.

In our tradition, anger is considered the most negative emotion you can have. The way to deal with this emotion is to develop patience. Patience is the antidote to anger.

It works in this way: If somebody hurts you, then you would reflect upon that person’s situation — how that sentient being is suffering with the burden of all the hatred he or she is carrying. This burden of anger-turned-hatred has brought illness.

Instead of reflecting on yourself, you reflect on the suffering of this human being, which brings about compassion.
