How To Regard Anger

1. If a person shows anger to you, and you show anger in return, the result is a disaster.

2. However, if you control your anger and show its opposite - love, compassion, tolerance, and patience - then not only do you remain in peace, but gradually the anger of others also will diminish.

3. Anger may lead to temporary success, yielding a little satisfaction for a brief period, but ultimately will cause further difficulties.

4. When someone tries to take advantage of you, first you must clearly understand that this person is a human being, and has a right to be happy.

5. Then, you can act according to the circumstances he or she has created, responding strongly if necessary, but never losing your compassionate perspective.

Compassion is the key.

Gorgeously Captures Intricate Paper Marbling Process by Oguz Uygur

Turkish filmmaker Oguz Uygur has gorgeously captured his parents’ delicate craft of erbu, also known as paper marbling. To create these beautiful patterns, first a tray is filled with water. Next, paint or ink is spilled, dabbed, dripped, sprayed, fanned, and/or pulled across the surface of the water. Sometimes additives and chemicals are applied to the mixture to create various textures. Thin wires are used to pull paint or ink into intricate patterns, with deliberate care taken for each design. Finally, a piece of washi paper is placed onto the water/paint surface with the intent to stain the pattern onto the paper. The paper is then allowed to dry before being used for calligraphy, book covers, and endpapers in bookbinding and stationery.This marbling method was first developed in East and Central Asia, as well as the Islamic world and is currently an important part of Turkish, Tajik, Indian, and other Asian and Middle Eastern cultures. Some of the marbled designs and patterns are reminiscent of the woven carpets typically found in similar regions. Uygur’s short film captures amazing detail and depth of field using close-up shots demonstrating the intricate attention paid to this form of aqueous surface design.
