Overcoming Resentment

Some days are harder than others when it comes to the defilements and today was definitely on the list. In the past few weeks we’ve been dealing with a mother of one of my son’s classmates who’s been particularly spiteful. AddAs muas I am tempted to give in and respond in kind I know I need to make every effort to prevent the arising of more aversion. As such I will do the following:

  1. Take every opportunity to make sure contact and wish her a good day. 
  2. Thank her for her service as a member of the PTA. 
  3. Cultivate metta and karuna for her. 

May I overcome hatred and make a path to the deathless.
