Thought of today.

Are you blaming the SPOON?

"When we are upset, itís easy to blame others. However, the true cause of our feelings is within us. For example, imagine yourself as a glass of water. Now, imagine past negative experiences as sediment at the bottom of your glass. Next, think of others as spoons. When one stirs, the sediment clouds your water. It may appear that the spoon caused the water to cloud Ė but if there were no sediment, the water would remain clear no matter what. The key, then, is to identify our sediment and actively work to remove it."

-Josei Toda
