Why should we try and rein in our anger and the tendency to criticise others or act hastily? Bhagawan lovingly enlightens us today.
Man is falling prey to anger. Who is affected by this anger? It is not others but he himself. It is said, “Anger is one’s own enemy, peace is the protective shield, compassion is the true relation, happiness is verily the heaven, and misery is the hell.” Therefore, make efforts to control your anger. Do not consider yourself to be superior to others. Where is God? He is present in every human being and in every living creature. That is why it is said, Eswara Sarva Bhutanam (God is the Indweller of all beings). Daivam Manusha Rupena (God takes the form of man). When you consider all as Divine, you will never indulge in criticism. God judges a person by their feelings not by their actions. God is Bhavapriya (one fond of feelings), not Bahyapriya (one who is fond of outer show). So, make efforts to turn your vision inward. A true human being is one who looks inward.
