“Today’s Gift” – Anger

“The glass blower is an artist that takes broken  glass and melts them in a very hot furnace.  Then the glass blower blows through a long tube and creates objects such as cups and plates and pieces of art.

The sharp edges of our anger are like pieces of broken glass.  We all have things in our lives that anger us-it is only human to bump into our sharp edges.  One edge might be crabby, another silent and withdrawn and still another yelling and screaming.

The heat of love and compassion can melt our anger.  This may take the form of sympathy for ourselves or for the people we love.  More often it is the compassion of those around us that helps melt our anger.  Sometimes saying I’m sorry is a good way to melt anger and find the love underneath it.”

Create beauty with anger………
