Monday Meditation

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.


  1. That is a well-put quote from Buddha. Wow.

  2. A very good quote .. is there one for the fool who'd still hold on to that hot coal?

  3. True, very true. Still, a person can visualize scooping up a pitch fork of hot coals and tossing them in the general direction of the person who makes you angry. Nobody has to get hurt...necessarily...

  4. CG- yes, I liked the quote immediately and recognized it's one I need to work on

    Daryl- I don't know, when I think of a quote to say while I'm holding it I'll let you know ;)

    CBW- I nearly peed my pants. I am very efficient at using a pitchfork... good idea
