  • There’s an assumption that the world is an angry place,
    and that a sane human being reciprocates anger with anger.

    The point of meditation is to understand that there’s space between oneself VS the reaction. There’s space between stimulus VS response.

    Otherwise, “anger becomes you”.

    One needs not to identify with the stimulus; instead, there’s a room to contemplate and formulate action (not “reaction”) that is tolerant and understanding.

    Meditation is also a way to study oneself. One looks inside oneself first for answers. One takes responsibility for the way one feels. There’s no pointing finger to the world, blaming everything else for the way one feels.

    Contrary to the view that meditators run away from feelings, they face up to feelings. In meditation, they cultivate the tool to deal with feelings, which are, really, the world. What is the world, if not the stuff we’ve made out of it?

    Hope this helps..

  • Time to stop and gently, quietly pose this question to your own heart: am I somehow projecting my own aggressiveness onto others? Stay very still, and the answer will come.

  • Can you state examples or reasons why Buddhist meditation is passive-aggressive anger. I am not quit sure you know about Buddhist meditation. Would you give me an example of Buddhist meditation you refer to.

  • I’m sorry that we all can’t be perfect and have amazing beards like Rabbis *Bows Down*=(

  • Why woulds you have anything against them, they never planted bombs or did anything bloody to you guys or anyone else, its most peaceful religion.read about gautama buddha on wiki, just brief description, i don’t suppose you’ll dislike him or his ideology.

  • Whatever we seek at that moment to bring us inner peace has its own place. But spirituality evolves with time, as do we. What we are now may not be what we are later.
