"gautam buddha used to say to his disciples, “to be angry is so stupid that it is inconceivable that intelligent human beings go on doing it. somebody else is doing something and you are getting angry? he may be doing something wrong, he may be saying something wrong, he may be making some effort to humiliate you, to insult you - but that is his freedom. if you react, you are a slave. if you say to the person, ‘it is your joy to insult me, it is my joy not to be angry,’ you are behaving like a master.” unless this master becomes crystal clear in you, crystallized, you don’t have any soul. you are just a phonograph record, and as you grow older your recording goes on expanding. you become more knowledgeable, and people think you are becoming wiser - you are simply becoming a donkey loaded with books. wisdom consists only of one thing - not of knowing many things but of knowing only one thing, and that is your awareness and its separation from the mind."
