Some harsh words spoken at the spur of the moment may suddenly change the entire environment. .we may get a feeling that we are being attacked by negativity from all sides. We may even notice ourselves reacting even though we do not want to react. Do not allow negativity to draw your mind into more negativity. Observe each thought with sincerity and intensity until it passes. Be aware. Be compassionate first with yourself and then with others. Allow the storm to pass.
Deep awareness builds up over years of practice. Practice, not just sitting in meditation, but bringing awareness to each thing we do. Cultivate awareness in your day-to-day life and relationships. Keep Meditating
