Like anger,rest in the store consciousness---in the basement—in the form of a seed, untilyou hear, see, read, or think of something that touches your seed of anger.Then it comes up and manifests on the level of your mind consciousness, yourliving room. It manifests as a zone of energy that makes the atmosphere in yourliving room heavy and unpleasant.When the energy of anger comes up, we suffer.Whenever anger manifests, the practitioner immediately invites the energy ofmindfulness to manifest also, through the practice of mindful breathing.

  • 5. Insights into Hidden AngerMindfulness does not fight anger or despair. Mindfulness is there in order torecognize.Mindfulness is the capacity of being aware of what is going on in the presentmoment."Breathing in, I know that anger has manifested in me”“Breathing in, I smile towards my anger”This is not an act of suppression or of fighting.It is an act of recognizing.Once we recognize our anger, we embrace it with a lot of awareness, a lot oftenderness.
  • 6. “It is important to remember, that we always have the Buddha in us.”Practitioners of meditation do not discriminate against or reject their internalformations. We treat our afflictions and our anger, with a lot of tenderness.When anger comes up in us, we should begin to practice mindful breathing rightaway:"Breathing in, I know that anger is in me.”“Breathing in, I am taking good care of my anger:”Continue to tenderly embrace the energy of anger within you.Anger may continue to be there for some time, but you are safe, because theBuddha is in you, helping you to take good care of your anger.The energy of mindfulness (awareness) is the energy of the Buddha.When you practice mindful breathing and embracing your anger, you are underthe protection of the Buddha (Divine Awareness).
  • 7. Mindfulness of AngerRecognizing, Embracing, Relieving the Suffering of Anger1- The first function of mindfulness is to recognize, not to fight. "Breathing in, Iknow that anger has manifested in me. Hello, my little anger? And breathingout, "I will take good care of you."2- Once we have recognized our anger, we embrace it. This is the secondfunction of mindfulness, and it is a very pleasant practice. Instead of fighting, weare taking good care of our emotion. If you know how to embrace youranger, something will change.3- So the third function of mindfulness is soothing, relieving. Anger is there, butit is being taken care of. The situation is no longer in chaos, with the crying babyleft all alone. The mother is there to take care of the baby and the situation isunder control.Requirements: Interest, Courage & Faith

With the Buddha in you, you have nothing to worry about anymore.Everything will be fine if you know how to keep the Buddha within you alive.Even if we are angry, unkind, or in despair, the Buddha is always within us. Thismeans we always have the potential to be mindful, to be understanding, to beloving.We need to practice mindful breathing or walking in order to touch the Buddha(Awareness) within us.

  • 10. Fear gives life to anger“Someday this body will be a corpse. Everything that is near and dear to me will be lost.”Every day we can practice like this, taking a few mo-ments as we follow our breathing.We practice the Five Remembrances so that the seed of fear can circulate.We must invite fear up, to be recognized, to be embraced. And then when it goes backdown again, it becomes smaller.When we invite our seed of fear up like this, we will be better equipped to take care of ouranger. Fear gives life to anger. We don’t have peace when fear is there, so it becomes thesoil in which anger can grow.Fear is based on ignorance. Lack of un-derstanding is also a primary cause of anger.Source- Reconciliation: Healing the Inner Child by Thich Nhat Hanh
