How can we be free of anger? To cross a river, walk over it. From a burning house, escape. So too, when your heart is on fire, stay present, forgiving and compassionate. Balance and cleanse the mind to stop it from spinning with fear, to see deeply, to heal. We direct the mind to what is great – the very source of unsurpassable joy. A talk given at a joint Theravada Buddhist Community / Satipaññā Insight Meditation Toronto retreat in 2016.
