How To Regard Anger

1. If a person shows anger to you, and you show anger in return, the result is a disaster.

2. However, if you control your anger and show its opposite - love, compassion, tolerance, and patience - then not only do you remain in peace, but gradually the anger of others also will diminish.

3. Anger may lead to temporary success, yielding a little satisfaction for a brief period, but ultimately will cause further difficulties.

4. When someone tries to take advantage of you, first you must clearly understand that this person is a human being, and has a right to be happy.

5. Then, you can act according to the circumstances he or she has created, responding strongly if necessary, but never losing your compassionate perspective.

Compassion is the key.

Let’s trade in all our judging for appreciating. Let’s lay down our righteousness and just be together.

Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer. 

Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range. 

Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.

Let that be an indescribable myth for your own appreciation.

Is there a difference between happiness and inner peace? Yes. Happiness depends on conditions being perceived as positive; inner peace does not.
