On Anger From Shree Vasant's Teachings

People say, “Oh this makes me angry.” “That person made me mad.” Actually, it is all in the mind. Someone cannot make you anything. So, when this anger comes, say to yourself, “I do not need this angry feeling. Go away.” It is unnecessary to put burden on the mind and body by becoming angry. Simply say, “No, I don’t want it.” And keep quiet. Always keep quiet when you have anger. You can deal big blows without anger. You can say the same thing by being firm without all that nervous energy creating disharmony in yourself as well as the atmosphere and the person with whom you are speaking. Keep silent. Let it pass and then speak.
