Over the past couple of years, I can honestly say I’ve learned more from reading Ox Herding than just about any other source of Dharma I’ve encountered.
This post about expressing anger also includes a theme that Barry has touched on a few times and one I personally found especially cutting; the “inherently violent” way we deceive and manipulate other’s perception of us to keep up an image we’d like others to have of us. I think it’s a post that addresses nearly all of us, even if it’s a difficult one to admit.
For the sake of all beings, I urge you to take a look at this post!
…and just because I like it so much, here is a link to Barry’s first post on Ox Herding.
