Managing self – a tip…
It is often said that a person who is aggressive in conversation, puts one’s opinions strongly and not open to listening to other viewpoints is actually internally weak and fearful. Often this aggressive behavior is driven by the subconscious and the person himself may not even be aware of this behavior.
Can we use this fact as a self check!
If we find that we are exhibiting above behavior (forceful in argument, not willing to listen to others, having the attitude of knowing all…), we take a step back and realize that it could be a sign of some of our internal fear or weakness that our subconscious is trying to hide!
This attitude would put us on the road to eventually discovering and overcoming those weaknesses – in other words put us on the road to making progress towards true spiritual growth.
