The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Loosing our appetite for Aggression

Image may contain: sky, cloud, text and outdoor

 We can contact our inner strength, our natural openness, for short periods before getting swept away. And this is excellent, heroic, a huge step in interrupting and weakening our ancient habits. If we keep a sense of humor and stay with it for the long haul, the ability to be present just naturally evolves. Gradually we lose our appetite for biting the hook. We lose our appetite for aggression.
