. . . . . . standing in front of the kitchen sink, noticing physical tension, noticing resistance, noticing shallow breath, … … …noticing the beginning of a mental loop of thoughts with one shared theme “anger.”
Alright, I decide to take a break and sit down on a chair.
Why is there anger and also a clinging to anger and angry thoughts (loop)?
I should not be doing this …
Okay, what should I be doing instead?
I should rather listen to a Dharma talk or do a meditation.
Because I would feel better!
Why would I feel better?
Because listening to a Dharma talk or doing a meditation would contribute to deepen my practice and thus support a strengthening of equanimity and liberation.
Wait – isn´t washing the dishes with mindfulness, performed with Metta just another exercise to deepen equanimity?
Yes, it is. 🙂

Thank you all!
May we all be filled with compassion and good will!
