Losing Your Temper

Some words words I saw on Twitter recently:

It reminds me of something an old minister said to us once at the Buddhist temple I used to attend: words are like toothpaste in that once you get them out of the tube, you can’t put them back.

Food for thought. 🤔

P.S. Featured photo is of the famous Asura statue at Kofuku-ji Temple in Nara, Japan, depicting the story of an asura, a war-like titan in Buddhist-Indian mythology, that famously repented after encountering the Dharma and subsequently renounced all violence.
