Breathing

Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky.
Conscious breathing is my anchor.


Thich Nhat Hanh

Negative feelings

Look at children.
Of course they may quarrel, but generally speaking they do not harbor ill feelings as much or as long as adults do.

Most adults have the advantage of education over children,
but what is the use of an education if they show a big smile while hiding negative feelings deep inside?

Children don’t usually act in such a manner.
If they feel angry with someone,
they express it, and then it is finished.
They can still play with that person the following day.


The XIV Dalai Lama

Let Go

The Buddha told us to see the way things are
and let go of our clinging to them.

Take this feeling of letting go as your refuge.
