taking it easy...


temper... one of the most important aspects of our intellectual beings that takes control of us during emotional circumstances... keeping the calm and taking it easy is much more easily said than done... neverthless, it is reasonable to say that the universal fact remains: the temper and the anger are almost always "after-the-fact"...

keeping a cool head not only defines patience, but also character to a certain extent... if only we could put ourselves in the shoes of the other person... every harsh word spoken is a hard unerasable stain in the mind and heart of another person... there have been a lot of harsh words spoken to me, at me, by people whom i had even considered near and dear... but my lack of worldly-wisdom at the time made me react too strongly internally and take things to heart... but now i do realize that to-each-his/her-own, and it is only human to err... i'm sure i have committed a lot of mistakes knowingly or unknowingly (NO, am NOT going to go to Jesus to bear my sins on his shoulders...)... i do however understand that its not the end of the road, and i will continue to do my best in working toward the greater good and following the inner truth from the heart...

if only i could, i would...
take away the pain and suffering from the struggling...
take away the evil from the selfish rich...
take away the sugar from the lying...
alas i have more ego than power...
for, all i can, is to take care of my own...
and take care not to step on someone for the sake of doing so...

there shall be a dawn, to follow the dusk...
when there will be light, and there will be freedom...
in the name of goodness, people will stop bloodshed for
religion/land/lust...

there shall be a time, a time soon enough...
when we'll all be together...
working toward a common cause...
of being humane... and being true...

if i could, i sure try would! to make this a better place!

hey arvind, I can totally understand how u feel about one losing his/her temper..it happens to me a lot in the form of road-rage...problem is, yeah I do feel sorry later on for cursing the slowpoke ahead of me..but with having a short temper at times, it becomes difficult to put myself in the other guys position before loosing my cool.
