Anger and Patience

“Patience in one minute of anger can prevent 100 days of sorrow.”

This Chinese proverb has given me so much strength through periods of anger. It speaks the absolute truth. Anger is a dark, mangled energy that when released destroys happiness in one solid blow. Where does it come from? I seek the complicated answer to this complicated thought. It CAN be controlled. The mind is ever so powerful, one will never be able to fully understand the mechanism and power of this machine of tissue. It’s so small but yet so vast in it’s ability to create & interpret thought. Translating feeling to thought, thought to emotion, emotion to movement. It’s a super computer from the ancient times, yet it is a mere mass of fleshy matter that has evolved over millions of years.

Things to think about…
