Why mothers’ need to control their anger

When a mother genuinely angry, administers the blows and billows of anger on her children, the children also get angry, but are unable to react or protest effectively. Besides discipline imposed by fear has only a marginal chance of becoming a good acquired habit, because of the coexistence of suppressed, but developing animosity in the hearts of children. The result is that their anger goes under-ground  in their minds and lies in wait, manufacturing animosity of different kinds in their psyche.

When the animosity will suddenly explode, as it must, one day, she, who had not learnt to overcome her anger, and is now also unable to use her wonted anger-therapy on her grown up children, would find herself to be very unhappy and frustrated person. And, to be sure, she has herself contributed to this situation! It is to be pondered over weather or not the permanent benefit of filial love should be sacrificed for a temporary advantage.

But the situation would be entirely different if the mother practices anger-therapy on her children after learning how to overcome her own anger. In that case she would be only hissing like the cobra of Sri Ramkrishna’s parable, and not biting. [Note: the reference is to the story of the Brahamchari and the Cobra in the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna]

Creative utilization of anger is impossible for a person who has not learnt how to overcome his anger.

A long time ago, a really long time ago, no (laugh) not that long ago. We don’t know when exactly, we saw the worlds first scientists. These weren't you know typical scientists. They began by letting their mind get very still, and in this quiet space they were able to discover amazing things and discover many secrets about the human body, mind and consciousness. They discovered then that the way we breathe affects the way you feel. And what you eat affects what you think. They noticed that to function well, the mind and memory need rest.  And that, meditation is the deepest rest of all, giving you incredible amounts of energy. They also discovered that experiences can cloud our vision by getting stuck in our minds, meditation can clear them, so hear, see and feel more clearly.

These scientists or seers would compare notes and then share their knowledge with the community. As you know in that time people didn't have Facebook, Twitter and phone, so information spread incredibly slow - from one person to another and from group to group. Over time what the seers have learnt got lost and was misunderstood, until those who have been in the deepest of meditations were able to rediscover the secrets and restore it. Meditation is universal.  Just like you don’t have to be Italian to eat pasta.

Fast forward to the modern day...

People that were searching for deeper meanings of life, travel the globe and learned that some of the greatest seers lived in India. Listened, asked questions and found something important and in doing so they began to share it.

What if everyone could have a more peaceful and clear mind? Can we study less and get better grades? What about run faster, be smarter, better, stronger, wiser? We are all connected. We can create a better world and it starts with something as simple as closing your eyes, meditating and feeling a deeper connection with yourself. When you feel good you treat others around you better and the cycle continues. Who would have thought that the work of  ancient scientists would have the power to transform our world today!

To really open your eyes sometimes you have to close them.

Life is time!

 

Your life is nothing but the time you've got

Your life is nothing but the time you’ve got. A waste of time is destruction of life. Time well and wisely spent is life grandly lived. Life is time!

~Swami Chidananda.

It is the state of our Mind

 

It is the state of our mind that makes our happiness or unhappiness. If that inner state is adjusted and corrected, then nothing has the power to give us any experience except that which we give it.

~Swami Chidananda.
