Anger is, most often, generated
by the assumption that you know best
and more about what matters than others,
combined with the subconscious assurance
that, because you are so enlightened,
the world spins at your command.
Think about it. Once you understand
that it's barely possible to fully know
the why and when of your own self,
and fairly impossible to walk in others' shoes;
once you see that your little mass
in the universal scheme and
your tiny dot on the continuum of time
are quite insignificant in the story of creation,
anger becomes a luxury that reality cannot afford.
