In fact, to call it transformation isn’t right, because you don’t do anything; you only need patience. And this is one of the greatest secrets. When anger comes you are not to do anything; just sit silently and watch it. Don’t be against it, don’t cooperate with it, don’t repress it. Just give it a little time and see what happens and you will be surprised.
One day you will understand that if you can wait enough, anger itself becomes compassion. It’s a wheel moving on it’s own and YOU who are in a hurry. Just as night becomes day, anger becomes compassion if you can wait a little. The same energy just patience has to be added to it, nothing else. Never do anything in the mood when the poison possesses you. One of the basic laws of life is that everything continuously changes into its other.
Don’t act when anger is uppermost, otherwise you will repent and you will create a chain reaction. Do anything when you are in a negative moment and you will be in a chain, and there is no end to it. When you are negative you do something, the other becomes negative. Negativity provokes more negativity, anger brings more anger, hostility brings more hostility, and things go on and on and people have been entangled with each other for LIVES together.
Don’t waste the moments of anger because it creates such great energy in you which can destroy. But energy is neutral and the same energy that can destroy can be creative. Just wait. The same energy that can shatter, can shower life. Waiting and not doing anything in a hurry, seeing the inner change.
You were full of anger, and then anger goes on and comes to a climax and then you can see the wheel is turning, and the anger is relaxing, and energy is released, and now you are in a positive mood, the creative mood. Now you can do something. So always wait for the positive.
Remember the difference, tremendous difference is there. Don’t sit on top of the negative, forget the negative, do something against it. Don’t smile when you are angry, close the room, keep a mirror in front of you and see your angry face yourself. There is no need to show it to anybody else. It is your business, it is your energy, it is your life, and you have to wait for the right moment. Go on looking in the mirror: see the red face, the red eyes, and the murderer there.
Everybody carries a murderer inside even you. Don’t think that the murderer exists somewhere else, or somebody else is a murderer who commits a murder it’s you who carry the suicidal instinct in you because everybody has the possibility to
commit a murder, just look in the mirror.
These are your climates and you have to be acquainted with them. This is part of the growth towards self-knowledge. Knowing yourself doesn’t mean sit silently it means know all you climates, all possibilities the murderer, the sinner, the criminal, the saint, the holy man inside you, the virtue, the whole range of it, and by knowing it you will be discovering secrets, and keys.
You will see that anger cannot be there forever. Happiness comes and goes, unhappiness comes and goes. Anger has come and it will be going. You just wait, have a little patience. Just look in the mirror and wait. Let anger be there, let your face go ugly and murderous wait and watch.
Don’t repress and don’t act according to the anger, and soon you will see that the face is becoming softer, eyes are becoming calmer, the energy is changing — the male turning into female… and soon you will be full of radiance. The same redness that was anger now is certain radiance — a beauty on your face, in your eyes. Now go out: the time has come to act. Act when you are positive. Don’t force positivity; wait for the positivity to come on its own. And this is the secret.
