Fact carries no ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’

It is easy to intellectualize stuff here. I am talking of Real life. It is very easy to say, “Oh, you know, if you are the Sat-chit-ananda, then anger does not matter”.
Does anger does not matter really when you are fighting and negotiating with the man on the street? Does it matter to you or not?
So, don’t just give hypothetical and ideal answers. Answer from your life. Answer from the way you interact with your boss, your wife, your kid, the man on the street; the stranger, the robber. Look at that. Stare at the facts on the face. Look at the way the world is – violent, chaotic, anarchic. What is the point in talking of great ideals?
Why talk “ifs” and “buts”? The fact carries no “ifs” and “buts”. The fact is just there, not conditional, not “if”.
You cannot be told that, “You know, if you ‘think’ of yourself as pure consciousness then you will feel peace”.
If you ‘think’ of yourself as pure consciousness?
The bugger does not even know that every thought is a disturbance. Peace is when thoughts are not there, not needed.
And the remedy he is suggesting is, “No, if you ‘think’ of yourself as pure consciousness!”
And what exactly is that – ‘pure consciousness’?
Some great pristine image!
