Morning Meeting

Q: I have disputes with my mom’s partner. I’m often angry and it’s hard in my heart. We get on each other’s nerves. I get very worked up and don’t know what to do or how to calm down when that’s happening. There are lots of situations where I feel quite desperate about my emotions and I don’t know how to react.

John: Do you have a garden outside?

Q: Yes.

John: Take some time and find a few stones, sort of round and flat. Or find them somewhere else and bring them home. When you’re upset, take several stones and place one on top of the other until they are all sitting still, like a little tower. And then sit in front of the stones and see how wonderfully they just sit there. So free, so still, so clean, so simple.

Your heart will start to do the same. That will help you. 

Q: Brilliant! Thank you so much.

Q: I grew up during the Second World War, and we had a philosophy that it’s safest to be quiet and not ask too many questions. Very late in life I realized that I’m really part of an interaction with everything in this world and the universe, and that
