Poem: Before you hit me …a Haiku

2011-12-22 Our Neighborhood (4)

Can you ask yourself,

‘Hmm, will this make it better?’

…Before you hit me


About the poem:

It’s not okay to hit a kid or anyone. Those who hit were likely hit themselves as kids. How can we be the ones that turn the tide?

Anger has no value. The Dalai Lama said it and I agree. I found that meditation helped me gain a split-second pause in my life. This gives me time to consider the best reaction, rather than reacting in anger and regretting what follows. How can we slow down?

I like the Sahaja meditation courses available as free downloads from freemeditation.com. But there are many types of meditation, so find one you like! Pema Chodron, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Louise Hay …and many others are awaiting you. They can help you make it better.

Joan Gregerson knows that life and love are the same. When we aren’t fully loving, we aren’t fully living. She writes books and blogs about this!
