Episode 87 On Shouting

July 21, 2023

Good morning from Martha’s Vineyard. I thought I’d share something really sweet that I stumbled upon on Instagram. It was a young Buddhist monk talking about anger and shouting. He said, “you know when two people are really angry at each other and they start shouting? It’s kind of a strange thing because you’re right next to the person, yet you’re shouting.

He said, an ancient Sufi said that when you’re shouting at someone, it’s because your hearts are so far apart that you shout because the shouting is a way to try to make up for the distance. He went on to say that the opposite is true as well. When you’re with another person with whom you’re lovingly connected, there is very rich communication in the silence and often a glance or a nod can communicate so much. It’s so true. Speaking for myself, I greatly value being in a room or a home with someone in silence when I feel that ease.

Anyway, I thought I’d share that because it’s a beautiful way to think when you get angry or want to make a negative comment  think about your heart and where and how you’re disconnected.

I’m going to leave you with that today until next time from my heart to yours.
