Saying Goodbye To Anger
‘I expect’ is the great illusion, which converts itself into demanding rights without due respect for others.
Anger in all its forms is a direct result of an expectation not being fulfilled and brings cries (although sometimes silent ones) of * They should have done this * Why did this happen? or * Don’t you know better? Disappointment, accusations and demands are violent energies, which we throw around very naturally and easily in our daily life when our expectations are not fulfilled. They are like a burning fire that eats away at our original spiritual qualities, turning them to a dust that pollutes the self and others.
Instead, let us continue to practise returning our thoughts to the self and remembering our original source of peace. In that experience of deep, natural peace, we will find balance and clarity and the ability to tolerate and adjust to the unexpected.
One of the keys of meditation practice is to quickly gather our thought energy and take it inside to connect to our original qualities, no matter what may be happening outside, or even inside!
Let me disconnect from the external and plug in to the internal energies that support me and then I will be able to say goodbye to anger very easily.

The one with contentment is neither upset nor upsets others.
Expression: Many times I find that my words, actions or behaviour tends to upset others inspite of my not wanting to hurt them. I seem to be very happy with the situation, but others don’t seem to be. At that time I am not really able to understand the reason for this and I consider the others to be unreasonable.
Experience: I need to check myself when others are getting upset with me. I need to make effort to check and change myself constantly so that I am able to move along with the demands of time. This is what will bring about true contentment – such contentment that neither will I be upset nor will I upset others.
