Root Out Anger


Look to the root of anger to find the desire it springs from. Trying to dissipate anger by venting it is like blowing dandelion seed in the wind. They will take root and spring up again. Use the trowel of discrimination and pull out the root.
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian

Our meditation practice quiets the thought waves in our mind. As we become more aware of the observer, the consciousness that is non-judgmental, observing ourselves meditating, we also become more aware of the observer during the day. When we notice ourselves becoming angry about something we can thoughtfully discern what is causing the anger. Discovering the cause can then allow us to discern the best way to pull out the root of the anger. Get rid of the anger once and for all!
