TOPIC: The Goodness of Suffering
Original Fear Every day we have to practice like this, taking a few moments to contemplate each exercise as we follow our breathing. We practice the Five Remembrances so that the seed of fear can circulate. We must invite it up to be recognized, to be embraced. And then when it goes back down again, it becomes smaller.
When we invite our seed of fear up like this, we will be better equipped to take care of our anger. Fear gives life to anger. We don’t have peace when fear is there, so it becomes the soil in which anger can grow.
“Fear is based on ignorance, and a lack of understanding is also a primary cause of anger.” TNH
