Anger hurts ourselves/ 5th Dalai Lama’s Advice not to tell everything that comes to mind
Rimpoche, in post election analysis, points out again how anger hurts ourselves. In this case the consequences are almost immediate, so a good example, otherwise karma can take a long time to show consequences.
Rimpoche picks up the 5th Dalai Lama’s Advice on the Two Systems with the point on not telling everything that comes to mind, but first analyzing and with a mind based on compassion, deciding what to say or not to say. Dharma is Life, Life is Dharma, Rimpoche says. Compassion is happy to see ourselves lose and others win. Compassion and love should be for everyone equally. Even with compassion as guidance, it is often difficult to decide what is right or wrong. Emptiness is not nothing, but depending arising, so we can’t hide there and avoid difficult decisions.
