“Anger is like the bubbles in a can of soda.

The more you’re shaken, the more you want to let it out.

The longer you keep it in though,

the greater the size of the eventual explosion

and the flatter the drink at the end.”
~Origin Unknown~

Yes Auds; I've got the bubble jet on at the moment to aerate the water a bit.

Profound, and as Talj says, makes you think!

You have to let anger out. If you eat your anger, it eats you. I'm glad this was just a quote and you aren't angry...LOL
The pond will appreciate being areated and so will all the occupants..!

Sometimes it is good to sit with anger and irritation and notice it swirling around inside. Attending to it and having a little conversation with myself about it is the way I release it most of the time. But then there are those times when I say, "let's have a little talk about this".

Thanks for the quote and the moment to think about this today.

I can sort of see where he is coming from with that quote....but I don't agree with it wholeheartedly. Anger can lead to all sorts of awful crimes. I feel it is much better to learn to control it....or it controls you. (Not YOU as in ME!)

Nice quote to go with the bubbles. When I'm angry, if I take the time to look deeper to see what feelings are fueling it, I usually find that I am also feeling hurt or afraid.

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
