i have this anger that builds inside of me
i vent...and then feel i'm not being 'buddhist' because i'm negative, self-righteous...
then i know i'm only doubling my suffering by blaming
it does seem that sometimes we buddhists single out certain emotions as worse than others, and then as marlaine said, double our suffering by judging. what is beautiful about this post is how clearly she sees this process occuring within herself, and how it brings about the recognition of our need for maitri.
i also enjoy the way marlaine ends each post with three things she is thankful for.
