At what point does the  flavor we name agitation come up?
Observing the arising, identification, and passing away of agitating emotions,
we gain insight into how our way of naming and identifying reality works
and how we might ease its hold on our consciousness.

Anger, frustration, confusion, and fear look different on the surface,
but all are essentially one flavor.

Any time they arise, you can melt them down
and use the essence of their energy
to call forth a more positive recognitio
n –
and bring pleasant, even blissful feelings into your fields of perception.
