Anger is often just an impotent and deceptive escape

If the president of the country humiliates you, you will not express your anger at him. But if some helpless man comes and says even a few things to you, then you will express your anger fully. Two men with guns come and slap you, and they are holding big guns. Will you show your displeasure to them?

No.

Our anger is so impotent and calculated anger. That is why, Jesus is saying, “No, such anger is not allowed.”

Why can’t I stop cheating myself? || Acharya Prashant (2015)

Pleasure thrives only when you do not understand it. It gets its sustenance from darkness. You don’t want to kill it; you just want to know it. And to know it, you throw some light upon it and you find that the pleasure is gone. Try that! Next time when you are drawing pleasure from something or somebody or some action, stop and look at it. No, you don’t have to condemn it, not justify it. Just look at it. Look at it and you may find that pleasure is no more.

How to deal with anger? || Acharya Prashant (2015)

Anger cannot be right in isolation. If everything else about you is wrong and petty, then anger too is bound to be wrong and petty. Do not be too bothered with the problem of anger. Do not try to look at the one fragment of mind and quarantine it. Whatever is the quality of your life that is also the quality of your anger. When life is genuine, then anger is also genuine. When life is fake, then all you have is fake anger. When life has depth, then anger too has depth. When life is shallow then anger is just as we said, poking and pinching.
