... the moon? No, because the moon is not on the street, isn't it? So similarly, right now are you angry? No? Then why should you avoid it? There is no need to avoid it, it is just that you think anger is an entity. Anger is not an entitiy. You become angry, you become angry. Anger is not sitting somewhere and you go hit it. There is no such thing. You become angry. When you become angry, is it pleasant for you or unpleasant for you? Unpleasant for you, unpleasant for others for sure. Unpleasant for yourself also. Today medical science proves to you, when you are anrgy, you are actually poisoning your system, you know. We have always known this, but today chemical tests clearly show you that you are actually poisoning your system. Generating poison in the system by being angry. So why would you want to poison yourself? It is not a conscious act. You are poisoning yourself, you are causing unpleasantness to yourself only because your mind is not taking instructions from you. Isn't it? It is not taking instructions from you. If it was taking instructions from you, you would have said blissfulness, isn't it? You wouldn't say anger. But now when you want to be peaceful it is getting angry because it is not taking instructions from you. So if your mind is not taking instructions from you, you have to pay a little more attention to it. Why is it not taking instructions from you? If you understand this, you don't have to avoid anger because anger is not sitting there and getting at you. You are becoming angry, you are becoming unhappy, you are becoming miserable. These things are happening to you essentially because you have not done anything to take your faculties under your control. It is happening accidentally, just by chance. If outside situations are good, you are also good. If outside situations are bad, you are also bad. That is not how human life should be. Human life should be like this. If I'm good everything around me becomes good. This should be the reality, isn't it?
