Like a Line Drawn in Water

“And who is the person like a

line drawn in water? It’s a

person who, though spoken

to by someone in a rough,

harsh, and disagreeable

manner, still stays in touch,

interacts with, and greets them.

It’s like a line drawn in water,

which vanishes right away,

and doesn’t last long.”

Lekkha Sutta AN 3.132

Even if I’m unable to prevent the arising of anger and irritation altogether, I can at least endeavor to let go and regain my composure as quickly as possible. May I strive to treat the vicious with kindness and to look after my heart so that it does not become dyed in black anger.
