Do Not Anger!

Do not anger – the first of Mikao Usui’s Precepts is probably one of the hardest precepts to keep.

Maybe you don’t ever get really angry or shout at people, but I bet you sometimes get annoyed over other people’s silly habits, or get irritated by other drivers on the road! Anger, annoyance, and irritation all create stress within you that does you far more harm than the people to whom it is directed.

It would do us all good to remember these words of Friedrich Nietzsche:

“You have your way.
I have my way.
As for the right way,
the correct way,
and the only way,
it does not exist.”

This Sundays quotation is from the Buddha.

Holding on to anger...   (Buddha)

Anger is always portrayed as the bad guy, isn’t it. Of itself, anger is a healthy emotion. It allows us expression in the face of a perceived threat. The problems arise when, instead of expressing the emotions in an acceptable way, we allow them to fester within us like an unhealed wound. The sad thing is that, as the Buddha says, we hurt ourselves by bringing dis-ease to our bodies.
