when we fail to obtain that which we want,
or obtain that which we do not.
The root of anger is craving.
Craving’s root is the illusion
that something other will make us happy,
if we possess it.
When we do not accept that which comes our way,
we reject the blessings of wisdom and compassion
that accompany all experience.
To abandon anger, first abandon craving.
To abandon craving,
abandon the illusion of happiness obtained.
To abandon all three,
accept the blessings of experience.
