ANGER – A DRAG ON OUR INNER ENERGY
It is our common knowledge that we ourselves can make or mar our lives. We can earn self esteem by exhibiting good traits in the society in which we are living or otherwise be in the eye of a storm. Choice remains with us. Nobody other than us is responsible for out doing and undoing.
It has also been observed how our youth is angered in schools, colleges and other educational institutions on silly pretext. Whenever they feel ‘let down they do not adopt ‘let go’ attitude. his is happening and we are he silent spectators. Dismayed though. The end result, we are witnessing; the killing sprees by the students in our schools / colleges on silly excuse – a excuse which could be forgotten being of no consequence. And why this is happening? It is happening because we are not devoting our quality time and resources to nurture our children to remain calm when under provocation. More often than not, it has been seen that the parents are partly at blame because they did not stop their children when they observed their children doing one negative act. They just glossed over. They just let it happen and thus it had indelible impression on the child’s psyche and thus playing havoc now.
Qualities of tolerance, patience, forgetting and forgiving are to be given to our youth both in the formal institutions and at home too. Evil of anger has to be nipped in the bud itself. Otherwise, the consequence we are witnessing will take hydra headed snake’s dimension thus engulfing not only the doers but the hapless bystanders too.
It is never one way traffic. If you show anger even on an occurrence which could just be forgotten with ‘let go’ attitude, is made to be ‘let in’ attitude by temper flaring up; the consequences of which could be disastrous. It will not only tell badly on our internal body system but also, in the process, you have added one more ‘dislike’ in the list you have earned over a period of time. This just goes on, if checks and balance audit is not done regularly on our anger. The result of anger cannot be LOVE, it will be generation of more anger only.
Anger too is bad in our forward march for self realization. With anger looming large, we cannot focus our attention on anything under the sun. May it be your studies for acquiring knowledge, forward march in the spiritual awakening, for you will never be focused inwardly being pre-occupied by your senses and its appeasement! For Inner Knowledge of our own selves, it is of prime importance that we remain positive oriented, removing the garbage of anger away from our being, remain at peace with ourselves and with the environs in which we are living, take care that we never are swayed by outer attacks on ourselves.
Our inner defensive shield should be such that it should offensively protect us from outer bad influences. That missile shield of defence can make us immune to missiles in the form of anger, rencour, jealousy- by obliterating these when these attack us.
Anger will also prove be a drag on our Inner Energy Reservoir, of which exploration can only be done with concentration, better connectivity with our outer and inner self.
With the intention in mind, I have penned down a poem, highlighting the consequences of anger.
Kindly critically comment. I get inspiration and motivation to write through your critique.
When thy perceptions go awry,
Doubt persists for every doubtless thing,
our mathematics goes in disarray,
We add two plus two as three,
Our rationality takes backseat,
Mind receptors get beating,
Sugar tastes vinegar,
Vinegar itself loses its flavour,
Thy taste-buds turn insipid,
When thyself remain no thyself,
You smell rat in every deal,
The bountiful fragrance gives,
Repulsive odour in rage.
Thy touch becomes even more awry,
Meda’s touch impedes,
Flawed feelings perceive,
Soft feelings for others turn,
Barbed and spiky.
Hearing becomes frigid,
Fascinating music loses its charm,
Ye think it will do more harm,
Anger takes away the music of life,
From our midst, whilst in anger.
If thee aspire to live a Balanced life,
Shun the anger that robs you
And puts you in somebody else’s clothing.
