Today's Daily Dharma: Reach Out to Let Go

Reach Out to Let Go
Anger doesn't just happen to us. If we're able to catch an angry thought as it's budding, we can let it go. The same is true of despair or hopelessness. And when letting go is too difficult, a good medicine for dealing with these emotions is to reach out and help others, healing them and ourselves.
John Daido Loori Roshi, "Between Two Mountains"
