Today, my anger is about …

This is a simple yet profound Practice that follows the Seishindo principles of Absorption, Utilization, and Balance.

  • Absorb your anger as you breathe it in and feel it.
  • Utilize the energy that your anger generates in you. The more consuming or seemingly overwhelming your anger, the more your system will be energized.
  • Remain emotionally balanced and look at all the sides and possibilities of your anger.

Instead of being only angry and limiting what you are capable of feeling, and thus limiting your ability to resolve your emotional reaction, this Practice invites you to explore the entire range of your emotions. The more you are able to feel the entire range of your emotions, the more emotionally balanced you will feel.

As always the key here is to take your time, speak slowly, breathe deeply, and pause between sentences.
Keep each sentence short and concise. This is important. Long sentences lead to sloppy thinking and getting lost.

You are to speak each sentence out loud if you are in a space that allows for this.

It can often be helpful to repeat this process for several rounds in one sitting, letting your words change as you go along.

You might want to read through this Practice at least once, before actually beginning.
