@Karasti, Which book of Thich Nhat Hanh's is this quote from?
When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That's the message he is sending. Thich Nhat Hanh
Thanks in advance.
I wanted to see if I can keep this up. I will post new suttas quotes (with their full source) each morning EST. I would like it to where this could be a good early motivation for the day or maybe something to chew on before the night. Feel free to comment.
@adamcrossley . Like Shoshin I meditate in the morning b/f breakfast (which sets me up for the day, in a way) and the late afternoon before dinner. What's happened to me is that my body has become used to those times, in a strange way. So by late afternoon, my body is telling me it's time. I will have to change that evening time one or two days/ week soon b/c I'm going to have other obligations at my late day time....
It's the regularity which seems to help me. A kind of internal rhythm.
Chogyam Trungpa considers them the same (thoughts and emotions)... so when I sit and a thought arises and I note that and label it "thinking" and go back to my breath, that works for me. I am doing the same w my emotions, as they arise, labeling them "thinking" and returning to esp. the outbreath. It's what I do and seems to help me.
