Awareness of emotions

So many people exist in their own bubble, focusing intently on getting food, homes, cars, insurance, securities. We are most afraid of something negative happening to our material world, such as our investments, home, health, and on a larger scale, global warming. But anger and being burned in the flames of anger doesn’t seem to bother us at all! We’re willing to be burned over and over again. It is the activity, power and crimes of ego-clinging that we need to challenge! We ought to be much more concerned about what is happening in our mind. All manner of elderly people still have anger raging inside; despite their years, they never learned how to stop suffering from it. We need tangible experience that stabilizes mind in its nature in order to bring harmony in our environment and in our relations with others

– Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche
