The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Anger and hatred are always coming from a place of unhealed trauma

If we feel anger towards others it comes from a place within us where we are suffering. Hatred and anger are always coming from a place of unhealed trauma. The way to help others is to first heal ourselves by cultivating greater compassion, understanding, and love. Judging minds caught up in anger and judgment only feeds the problem. There is no healing. By compassionately examining our own anger and releasing it we come to deeper understanding and love. This is the eternal way Buddha taught, as well as Jesus, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr, and many others.
