Dawn of wisdom ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

To “know” the emotion is to understand that, as it has no root, there is and never has been an emotion. Some people talk about emotion, particularly the negative emotions, as if they were some kind of hideous, demonic force that willfully invades your being, but they are not like that at all.

When you feel angry, just watch your anger. Not the cause of the anger or its result, just the emotion of anger. As you stare at your anger, you will discover there is nothing you can point to and say, “That is my anger.” And the understanding that there is absolutely nothing there is what is called the “dawn of wisdom.”

Terbitnya kebijaksanaan ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

Memahami emosi itu bagaikan memahami bahwa emosi, dikarenakan tidak memiliki akar, maka tidak ada yang namanya emosi. Beberapa orang berbicara tentang emosi, terutama emosi negatif, seolah-olah mereka adalah semacam kekuatan mengerikan dan kejam yang dengan sengaja menyerang Anda, tapi emosi bukanlah seperti itu.

 

Saat Anda merasa marah, amati saja kemarahan Anda. Bukan mengamati penyebab kemarahan atau hasilnya, tetapi hanya amati emosi kemarahan tersebut. Saat Anda menatap kemarahan Anda, Anda akan menemukan bahwa tidak ada bagian yang dapat Anda tunjukkan dan katakan, “Itulah kemarahan saya.” Dan pemahaman bahwa sama sekali tidak ada kemarahan disana, inilah yang disebut “terbitnya kebijaksanaan”.
