Without getting into story, simply name what is present, such as "annoyance," "thoughts of being mistreated," "body firing up," "hurt," "wanting to cry."A = Accept (Allow): Acknowledge that your experience is what it is, even if it's unpleasant. Try to have self-compassion instead of self-criticism.Perhaps a swamp of sadness was painful, or fumes of toxic wishes were alarming, or jumping exuberantly in a meadow of joy irritated a parent into a scolding. Don't add to the difficulty by being hard on yourself.A tube worker accused of 'celebrating colonialism' by singer Lily Allen after he used the station notice board to write about an infamous British battle in Africa has defended his actions, describing it as 'an important day in military history'.The board at Dollis Hill Underground station in Brent, west London, had an 'on this day in history message' about the 1879 battle between 150 British and colonial troops and some 4,000 Zulu warriors.But controversial pop star Lily sparked another storm after sharing the video of the worker wiping off the message about the battle of Rorke's Drift - which divided opinions online.
Following the battle, eleven men were awarded the Victoria Cross.'The 32-year-old millionaire singer shared a video of a member of staff wiping the sign off the board, alongside the caption: 'too right.'In the background of the video a woman's voice can be heard saying: 'That [the notice board] is supposed to be for uplifting comments, not for celebrating colonialism, so I'm glad you're wiping it off.'The tube worker's words come after a decorated veteran who led British troops in Afghanistan labelled Allen an 'ill informed virtue-signaller'.Adding: 'Everyone uses the underground system and it's quite easy to offend anybody really so if someone's got their own opinion on it, it wasn't my intention to put it up there promoting anything apart from commemorating 150 brave men who stood against 4,000.'

See the streaming nature of sights, sounds, thoughts, and other contents of mind, arising and passing away due mainly to causes that have nothing to do with you, that are impersonal. Additionally, sometimes they alone enable painful or challenging contents of mind to dissipate and pass away. (It's also necessary to work with the mind to build up the inner resources needed to be with it; being with and working with the mind are not at odds with each other as some say, but in fact support each other.)And whatever ways we work with the garden of the mind - pulling weeds and planting flowers - will be more successful after it R.
