Me and Rumi #2


Me: How do I get rid of anger? Sometimes I feel like if there’s only one emotion inside me, that’s anger. They say think before you react but seriously before I take my time to think, I have already reacted. I am embarrassed and I am tired.

Rumi: Anger rises when you’re proud of yourself. Humble that. Use the contempt of others, and your own self-regarding, to change, like the cloud in folklore that became three snake shapes. Or if you like the dog-barking lion wrath, enjoy the hurt longer. Watch a one-year old, how it walks, the slow wisdom there.
