    What Anger can do...

    After the carpenter shut down his workshop and headed home, a black poisonous cobra entered his workshop. The cobra was hungry and hoped to find its supper lurking somewhere within.

    It slithered from one end to another and accidentally bumped into a double-edged metal axe and got slightly injured.

    In anger and seeking revenge, the snake bit the axe with full force. What could a bite do to a metallic axe? Not much really, instead the cobraís mouth started bleeding.

    Out of fury and arrogance, the cobra tried its best to strangle and kill the object that was causing it pain by wrapping itself very tightly around the blades.

    The next day when the carpenter opened the workshop, he found a seriously cut, dead cobra wrapped around the axe blades.

    The cobra died not because of someone elseís fault but faced these consequences merely because of its own anger and wrath.

    Sometimes when we are angry, we try to cause harm to others but most often we find that as time passes by, we realize that we have caused more harm to ourselves.

    For a happy life, itís best that we learn to ignore and overlook some things, people, incidents, affairs and matters.

    It is not necessary that we show a reaction to everything. We need to step back and ask ourselves if the matter is really worth responding or reacting to.

    Yet we need to treat people with kindness even if they hurt us and people that show no inclination to change, are best handled with silence and prayer.

    Lord bless us with patience.
