There are instances when someone just blurts out anger for nothing I did (some people have anger management issues and I know that) and my reaction usually tears, going in silence and feeling hurt. Is that my bucket of anger too? If not, how do I stop reacting the way I do?
Your reaction is not anger, it is sadness.
Sadness comes out of ‘not getting what one wants’.
‘What one wants’ is an expectation.
An expectation is nothing but one’s own Raaga.
Raaga is nothing but few words in the mind that one holds on to tightly.
Recognize that words are just the weapon of the Ego with which it hurts itself before hurting others.
Let go of words, then automatically things will fall into place.
Raaga will drop.
Expectation will drop.
Want will drop.
Sadness will drop.
The reaction will drop.
You will be free! Let go of the words. Self-talk is not healthy. Let go! Dive into the silence behind the words.
