Learning from our anger

Ashly Doug

Listening to the newly-finished audio book for How Love Wins, I am struck by the difficulty of applying all that I have included in the book, for example dealing with anger. I realize I will need to listen to sections again several times, each time re-activating several ‘overlooked’ practices. In the section on the kindful cycle for hard times in How Love Wins, I recommended saying ‘teach me’ when misery arises, for example feeling anger after reading that my incarcerated friend has been denied his prescribed eye medicine and is going blind. With “teach me” I focus on the cause of my anger, so that when he next writes I will replace anger with a reminder to send him enlarged print articles. You probably have your own habits of anger. What do you think about replacing your anger with this request, ‘teach me?’
