That particular moment

Louise at Dare Boldly pointed to this. Wish I’d had the quote when I put up the Praying and Doing post the other day; it’s a lovely way of saying some of what i was trying to say…

Zen Flash

 When something upsets you, when something happens that is not to your liking in your family or your community, you want to change it right away. You are tempted to use the little power that is available to you, as a father, a mother, a teacher, somebody, to change the situation. This is exactly the moment to stop and contemplate. Practice looking deeply into the nature of what upsets you to see what the most mindful and compassionate response may be.

– Thich Nhat Hanh
