Don't poison the watering hole.
This morning I performed my daily meditation exercises. The plan for this morning was to bless everyone with peace. It didn't work so well. And during my meditation practice, I realized that it wasn't the methods or the meditation techniques that I use that was the problem. The problem was that I was, in essence, poisoning the watering hole with my own enraged thoughts. You see, I wasn't peaceful. And let's face it folks, anger is a ticking time-bomb that needs to be addressed the moment it's recognized.
What is poisoning the watering hole? As a child, I watched Gene Autry and Lone Ranger reruns Saturday morning. And every Saturday some low down skunk of a bad guy would throw off the posse by dumping salt into the only watering hole for miles around, thereby poisoning it and making the water unfit to drink for both man and beast.
Essentially, that's exactly what I was doing with my morning practice. You see, I was feeling like a cranky bastard and, rather than brush it aside, it was time to deal with it. So I sat in silent meditation and contemplated my dilemma. I wanted to use meditation to manifest happy peace, but my mind was in such turmoil that my meditation techniques weren't working. The reason was, that I wasn't using the right tool for the right job. I was not peaceful at all. In fact I was angry. I was so enraged in fact I wanted to slug something. So I stopped my practice for peace right then and there. And instead I worked on taking away not only my own anger, but the anger of everyone else as well.
How did I do this? By using this one simple practice
