“Why do we shout in Anger ???”

This is an anonymous piece of wisdom, and I thank my dear yogi brother from India, Rabi for sharing it with me on a ‘Sahaj Guru Day’, few years back. Ever since I wanted to share it with you all. Let’s Enjoy, Listen and Follow this Wise Advice from a Guru that seems to be a Realized  and motherly one, thus, a ‘sahaj one’ 🙂
 

“Why do we shout in ANGER“? What about LOVE?!

Demi and Howard - getting ready for Easter Meditation in Ontario

A Guru asked his followers, “Why do we shout in anger?

Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?”

 His followers thought for a while and one of them said…..

“Because we lose our calm, we shout for that”.

“But, why do you shout when the other person is just next to you?”

asked the guru. “Isn’t it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice?

Why do you shout at a person when you’re angry?”

Followers gave some other answers but none satisfied the guru.

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 to hear each

other through that great distance.”

Then the guru 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 guru continued…..

“When they love each other even more, what happens?

They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other

in their love. 
Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that’s all.

That is how close two people are when they love each other”.


‘MORAL’ said the guru…..

“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!”

 Did you know ?! Tips for “Anger Management” from sahaja yoga 

 “The source of anger is your (hot) liver and also your upbringing. These two things (may) give you horrible anger. Unless and until you witness yourself, your Realization has no meaning. You should separate your Self from yourself and see for yourself what is really wrong with you. Now, supposing somebody is a very hot-tempered person, instead of taking pride in it or using that temper to control others, he should try to control himself. How? Anybody who wants to be a saint should know that anger, should have no place”.

Another very bad enemy we have is our anger. The anger gives birth to anger.So all this aggressiveness comes from anger. If somebody has to be angry, he should be angry with himself.”

“If you have anger inside you, means you have got lots of ego. I have seen that the people who are angry are very explosive. And they take pride in it saying that: Yes, I’m very angry man.”

“Best is to get rid of anger: you can pull your hair, you can bite yourself, you can use your pillow to hit yourself! [laughs] That may be the best way to take out your anger. 🙂 ”  – Shri Mataji (quotes/advices)

    Why do we shout when we’re angry – It’s put so beautifully by the guru – because of the distance between our hearts. If the distance becomes so great we will not find the path to come together. How many friendships have come apart when two angry people can’t calm down and discuss the matter. They’ve let distance between their hearts become too great.

    Anger…

    Let me flow backwards for a moment…
    We start with fear…
    We probably do not understand why…
    Then…
    We find ourselves angry…
    For that is how fear ultimately manifests itself…
    Then…
    We find ourselves “hating”…
    Hating people…
    Hating things, ie weather…
    Using the word hate without realizing that you do!
    Then simply hating ourselves!!!

    Just take responsibility for that which you want to experience…
    So…
    If you want to experience anger… do not direct anger at others…
    Rather..
    Direct it to yourself…
    Oh…
    That doesn’t feel very good!
    So why are you choosing to do that?
    You do realize that you choose everything that you experience!
    Really!
    Yes… really
    So…
    Choose to be happy instead
    OK…

      Introspection on “anger!
      …continued

      You mean to say I make myself angry!
      Of course…
      No one can make you angry!
      It just seems that way…
      You think that by shouting
      That someone is listening?
      No one is listening…
      The question is
      Are you listening to yourself!

      The real SELF
      The real SELF is saying…
      Why are you doing this to yourself?
      And if you are not listening to the real SELF…
      The real SELF…
      Well, can only speak to you by allowing you to experience… SUFFERING
      Oh!!!
      So…
      When you are “shouting” at others…
      DO you hear yourself communicating
      … with Yourself.

      Listen
      Eventually there will be the
      SILENCE…
      Of peacefulness

      Then JOY.

    What a perfect photo of Demi & Howard – full of innocence, beauty and joy.

    Anger destroys everything that is beautiful. We need to really step back and take a good look at ourselves and realize how much better it is to love and be in love rather than creating bitterness and more negativity in our world.

    We want togetherness not distance – what we need is LOVE!

    Thanks for this beautiful message.
