From a Clear Mind
by Friends of Godwin
When there is hatred, when there is anger, please don’t take a decision because that decision will always be coming from a confused mind, not from a clear mind. Not only decisions but also words. I would suggest that if we get angry with someone then at that very moment we should just keep our mouths shut, because whatever we speak it doesn’t come from a clear mind, it can be confusing and can make matters worse. So the state of the mind in such a situation is very important.
On some occasions someone does something wrong and then we get angry and we try to correct that person with anger. I would suggest that to a great extent that type of reaction, trying to correct persons with anger, will not work.
