Why shout when discussing?
Category : blog
One day a teacher asked his disciples the following:
-Why people shout when angry?
The disciples thought for a while. -Because we lose our calm, answered.
-Pero, Why shout when the other person is on your side?, asked the teacher. Is not it possible to speak softly? Why do you yell at a person when you're angry?
Disciples gave some other answers but none of them pleased the master.
Finally the teacher explained: -When two people are angry, their hearts are far. To cover that distance they must shout, listen to. The more angry they, stronger will have to shout to hear each other through that great distance.
Then the teacher asked: -What happens when two people fall in love? They do not yell at each other but talk softly, Why? Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is very small.
The teacher continued: -When they fall further, What happens? Do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to your love. Finally, need not even whisper, just look at and that's it. So when they are around two people who love.
Then the master said: -When discussing not let your hearts away, do not say words that distance more, because there will come a day when the distance is so great, again find no way back.
