Do You Get Upset?

It is only ego/I that gets upset. Ego, or I, is created by consciousness that fixates on ideas and becomes a brittle self-image. It is precisely because of this self-identity that we judge others – me right, they wrong 😀

Original consciousness is never upset; it just sees.
The ‘I’ doesn’t just see; it seethes.
It keeps boiling, filled with intense but unexpressed anger.

The recognition of being upset is the Buddha’s first precept on the path to enlightenment. Only then can we look for the origin of this upset-ness or suffering = ego! Bingo!
