A saint asked his disciples, 'Why do we shout in anger? Why do people
shout at each other when they are upset?'
Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, 'Because we lose our
calm,we shout for that.'
'But, why to shout when the other person is just next to you?' asked the
saint. 'Isn't it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why
doyou shout at a person when you're angry?'
Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the saint.
Finally he explained, 'When two people are angry at each other, their
hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to
hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout
tohear each other through that great distance.'
Then the saint asked, 'What happens when two people fall in love? They
don't shout at each other but talk softly, why? Because their hearts are very
close. The distance between them is very small...'
The saint continued, 'When they love each other even more, what happens?
They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other
intheir love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at eachother
and that's all. That is how close two people are when they love each
MORAL: When you argue do not let your hearts get distant, do not say
words that distance each other more, else there will come a day when the
distance is so great that you will not find the path to return
PS:- Got this as a email and it touched me as I have had lost a few wonderful people because of ma anger.We often take pride of being anger and showing tantrums but its very easy to show your attitude ego and anger, and its very tough get a control over them and grow above it. Be skillful in handling relations, you can learn from mistakes so never worry about past. Love every one. Last but not least "Show your anger but don't get angry.. Sri Sri"
