Have you observed that you get angry only with those people who are very intimate with you? The more the intimacy, the more the anger. Why?
greater gap between you and the person, the less the anger that will be
there. You do not get angry with a stranger. You get angry with your
wife, with your husband, with your son, with your daughter, with your
mother. Why? Why do you get more angry with the persons who are more
intimate with you?
The reason is this: you are angry with yourself. The more intimate a person is with you, the more he has become identified with you. You are angry with yourself, so whenever someone is near to you, you can throw your anger upon him. He has become part of you.
With meditation you will be
more and more happy with yourself – remember, with yourself.
