Getting angry is easy. What is difficult is to keep cool and calm. Attitude doesn’t mean getting angry. Anger doesn’t mean courage. Angry man doesn’t mean a successful man. Anger doesn’t make someone successful. In fact irritated and frustrated behavior is often misunderstood with anger and aggression.
To be different is trending these days. The actions of many of us clearly indicate our efforts on how to be different from others and this is achieved at many occasions. While this is practiced in all other areas it may also be practiced to control or increase the patience level.
Agreed it is importantto get angry sometimes but to get angry every time is not a sign of wisdom. Anger spoils the relations and prevents the others from freely approaching the angry man. While the angry man may seem powerful but the more authoritative and powerful is actually the one whose mind is cool.
The characters of Lord Krishna and Lord Rama rarely displayed signs of aggression in their behavior as may be interpreted based on various television serials and the books on them. WhileLakshman and Balram were very powerful, they also showed aggression which at times got them out of their abilities to understand the situation.
Greater the patience level, greater is the ability of the person to think, to judge and to understand the scene. On the other hand an angry person has just to get rid of the situation that got him in trouble. The level of patience that is falling down in the people is surely a sign of frustration coming out of variety of reasons like unemployment, overcrowded areas, incomplete desires etc.
There is no need to follow the people who are already frustrated. I love the statement that Vivekananda made when speaking on Titiksha, “Ashubh Ka Pratikar Na Karo”. Do not retaliate if something goes against you. Do not react. He also said this is very difficult to practice but this may be the best thing to get rid of aggression.
