How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it?--Marcus Aurelius
So much of our suffering is generated by our own anger. Not just the anger of rage, but the slow simmering anger generated by jealousy, resentment, aggravation and judgment. Anger is purely a product of the mind, no one makes you angry, it is all your own. What purpose does it serve to be angry?
Letting go of anger, how simple it is to free ourselves of so much suffering.
To master our anger is to master our lives.
“Anger will never disappear so long as thoughts of resentment are cherished in the mind. Anger will disappear just as soon as thoughts of resentment are forgotten.”
