Paying My Debts

There are some days when it seems as though I’m going to completely lose my composure and restraint and lose myself in akusala speech. But, the bitter taste of anger still lingers on my lips and I know that there is no person to blame for any of this if not myself. I have debts to be paid and this is my penance as a debtor.

May I find the good in every person and situation. May I dwell on the morality, restraint, wisdom and compassion of those who would treat me ill for it could always be worse.


  1. Happy Kathina Full moon day to you, your family and all your readers
