Manuale di un monaco buddhista per abbandonare la rabbia: by Ryūnosuke Koike

By Ryūnosuke Koike

La rabbia è un sentimento potente. E velenoso. Offrendo un’illusione di forza, essa esercita sull’animo uno stimolo molto più intenso del senso di appagamento. Più ce ne serviamo però, più los angeles sua energia aumenta trascinandoci in una spirale di negatività: il corpo secerne sostanze sgradevoli che finiscono col danneggiarlo e l’anima non riesce più a provare gioia in nessuna situazione. l. a. rabbia è intimamente connessa agli altri due nemici della mente: il dubbio e il desiderio. Una mente che los angeles rabbia allontana dalla realtà è destinata a vagare nel dubbio, e il dubbio genera il desiderio. Ma il desiderio «si svuota nel momento stesso in cui viene appagato» e genera a sua volta infiniti pensieri negativi. Con linguaggio semplice e chiaro, senza l’obiettivo di «convertire» il lettore al buddhismo, l’autore ci spiega come spezzare questo circolo vizioso e ci insegna a controllare i pensieri negativi in modo da non fare del male a noi stessi e a chi ci vive accanto.
«Nella società sono molte le persone che competono, lottano e si dedicano totalmente al lavoro, mosse dalla sofferenza provocata dalla rabbia: le sostanze sgradevoli, secrete in step with questo motivo, si trasformano in rigidity e arrecano loro grossi danni fisici e spirituali.»
Ryūnosuke Koike
Koike ci accompagna in un percorso di crescita psicologica e spirituale, aiutandoci a gestire los angeles rabbia, il dubbio e il desiderio – sentimenti che sono all’origine di pressure e sofferenza – e a coltivare l. a. compassione consistent with il mondo che conduce alla serenità.
