Sometimes,we might overestimate our spiritual practice, we might think our emotional is so stable and we can always sustain in peace and calm. If you are able to be peace and calm no matter in whatever situation. Yes, Well done!
To know whether you are walking the right path, the best way to know more about yourself is when you are facing challenging situation which might trigger your ego, stress and tension, are you still able to keep your peace and calm? Are you shaking?
One of the beautiful quote from Thich Nhat Hanh, “Acting or saying things while you are angry is not wise.”
What a profound teaching! Shut your mouth when you are aware your anger. Breathe in and out until you are calm and peace, then only you start talking. Never underestimate the power of words, it shaper than any knife in the world. Its bring deep wound, perhaps wound that never heal and keep bleeding.
