Buddhistische Haltung zum “Leiden”

Buddhistische Haltung zum “Leiden”, entnommen von https://passionategrowing.wordpress.com/

Gut übertragbar in die Situation von eskalierten Konflikten oder Mobbing. Was lerne ich daraus, wo ist mein eigener Anteil, wieso wiederholen sie Konfliktmuster. Eine noblere Art des Reframing (im krassen Gegensatzu zum Begriff des “Arschengels” von Robert Betz über Menschen, die Ihre Knöpfe drücken).

Umgang mit eigenen Gefühlen: Was ist der Nutzen von Wut, wem bringt Rache etwas etc. Das hohe Ziel Gelassenheit zu erreichen und loszulassen.

Eventually we will find (mostly in retrospect, of course) that we can be very grateful to those people who have made life most difficult for us.

The Buddha compared anger with picking up hot coals with one’s bare hands and trying to throw them at the person with whom one is angry. Who gets burned first? The one who is angry of course.

Suffering is our best teacher because it hangs onto us and keeps us in its grip until we have learnt that particular lesson. Only then does suffering let go. If we haven’t learnt our lesson, we can be quite sure that the same lesson is going to come again, because life is nothing but an adult education class, If we don’t pass in any of the subjects, we just have to sit the examination again. Whatever lesson we have missed, we will get it again. That is why we find ourselves reacting to similar situations in similar ways many times.

If we do not try, we will not know.
