Anger – the mask for grief, fear and despair

DSCF5262

As a response to violation and injustice, anger is a fiery moral passion that impels us to act in the protection of one’s life or integrity. It is an honourable emotion so long as we don’t use it as a fuel for hatred and violence.

If we exlpore anger as a by-product of aborted grief, fear or despair; denied and suppressed the energies of these softer emotions are easily coverted to, and masked by, the harder emotions of anger and rage.

Miriam Greenspan – ‘Healing Through The Dark Emotions’.

Befriend grief, fear and despair and you open to the possibility for empowerment and transformation.

Impermanence

F564-620

Impermanence is a GIFT teaching us to live in the unfolding moment to moment reality of the pesent.

This is hot and risky to our rational mind but exhilerating, clear and unbounded to our spirit.

Imagine if you TRUSTED in the face of all phenomena.

Distraction

blurred-bird-1

It is important to be aware of the state of our minds, aware of our pedal and spin into endless distraction, only to find our life has passed us by.

The practice of awareness is to continually bring ourselves back to the totality and beauty of now and live now, right here in the present moment.

‘Don’t be like the pigeon in the tibetan proverb, he spends all night fussing about, making his bed, and dawn comes up before he has even had time to go to sleep.’

Sogyal Rinpoche

‘Human beings spend all their lives preparing, preparing, preparing … only to meet the next life unprepared.’
