Anger and ego are two hurdles for a human being to be happy and successful. Anger management has been a topic in top world studies, however when it comes to the point, one can’t stop himself. There have been cases when a mother was killed by a son in a moment of anger. Did he ever want this? How come one is not able to control himself at the right moment?
Transcending anger and ego is significant in being happy and blissful. How can we do this? how can we hit a 5 second pause button before becoming angry? How can we notice ourselves before insulting a fellow worker? All these issues seem simple but are tough to achieve.
This is a powerful text that gives an insight into deep mysteries of life. When one gets an item for happiness, another is already created in the mind. A person gets a million dollars that seemed a good target for happiness, the next target for two million is on the wall and so on one is embroiled in the motion of life until one dies, and then there is no further target. This is the reason why most people are miserable at death. Life seems totally un-fulfilled.
All happiness do not sum up to fulfillment; all things in the world do not sum up to Infinity. People do everything in life to become happy, but what they are missing is bliss, which has no opposites; which is complete fulfillment and a moment when there are no desires left to complete.
Is there a way to reach that moment? There is no moment in the future. It is here, and now. We are already there, but we have forgotten. We have this treasure worth millions, hidden in us, but we have forgotten. The moment we come to know about it, we are no poorer, and we do not need anything else.
