Dealing with Anger

Treat your anger with the utmost respect and tenderness, for it is no other than yourself. Do not suppress it—simply be aware of it. Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed. When you are aware that you are angry, your anger is transformed. If you destroy anger, you destroy the Buddha, for Buddha and Mara are of the same essence. Mindfully dealing with anger is like taking the hand of a little brother.

  1. I like this Debra.
    I rarely get angry these days, but when I do, I don’t “swallow” it anymore.

    I deal with it as mindfully as I can.
