Catching a bowl of anger

When you realize that a porcelain bowl is tipping over, you can try and catch it before it hits the floor. Once it has fallen, you can only gather up the broken pieces.

If you are mindful of anger as it arises, you can catch that anger and not get riled up. If that anger has already passed through you, you can only gather up the broken pieces.
