Radical Patience, are you losing yours?

Patience matters. Whether you are a parent, a teacher, a manager or anyone who deals with people, you need to know how to respond skillfully and peacefully to provocation. We will learn an inner technology called the four siddhis that will help us become more effective when others are angry, unreasonable or stubborn. These striking manifestations of wisdom are expressed in Buddhist art, ritual and practice. Becoming familiar with and practicing these methods will help us to become more peaceful with ourself and effective in dealing with others.

    The feeling of attachment instead of making us feel happy, relaxed and peaceful, often makes us feel very unstable, insecure and unhappy. How can we break free from these feelings? First we recognize that they exist, then we reduce them, and finally we abandon them completely. How can we do this? By using patient acceptance, and making a decision to abide with the discomfort look at it, and letting it go like a cloud in a clear blue sky. The gross waking mind is always looking for something to attach to! See you tomorrow:-)

    Hello all you mind training warriors, how is your battle going? Remembering the object of our anger is anger itself, why, because it is the source of our pain. Step back, breathe and look carefully with a patient mind and you will find the object of negation lies within the mind, not outside. More tomorrow at 7pm:-)
