Energy and Patience

Jozen Tamori Gibson

What the Buddhadharma is prescribing is a reclaimed relationship with our body and breath; connection with our feeling tones, pleasant, unpleasant, neutral; a friendship with our mental states; and the qualities of the mind—this is the alignment of the mind, the body, and the heart. … It is exhausting to hate. It is exhausting to dwell in anger, aversion, and confusion. It is exhausting, and we feel that! When we feel that exhaustion, that is a reminder that we are caught in something that is not innate in us. It is a reminder that there is an injustice, yes. And there’s something deeper.
