a good message from mary today

Taken from an email from Mary Morrissey


"There's a Chinese proverb that reads: if you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape 100 days of sorrow. I love this proverb and I know this is true.

Whatever might happen today that may push a button or cause us to feel reactive, let's practice bringing patience to that moment. Let’s bring compassion to that moment. From this new perspective we know that we're receiving 100 days with a much more positive outlook.

If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape 100 days of sorrow. Let’s practice patience today and enjoy a new, expanded, positive experience.

Many Blessings,



That is really a good message for me. With my high blood pressure I seem to explode faster than normal. I know if I practice this in the long run I feel better. Do you ever burst out angrily and then regret it later... I'm going to try to remember this.
