What Do You Get?

I get the chance to cultivate deep and profound patience. You seem to become more desperate and to be dragged deeper into a swirling cauldron of anger and resentment. As awful as I feel at times being constantly berated I can at least take comfort in the fact that I am able to use the poison as an anti-venom and iniculate myself against the kilesas. But, what do you get? I am saddened when I think about the ways you are hurting yourself but there’s nothing I can do except to work on my own heart and try my best not to add fuel to this ever-raging inferno.
