Boy, this is something I truly believe in and happens all the time…
Don’t think you have a valid excuse for “bad” behaviour when you are moody (in a bad mood). Don’t think you can just say something offensive, followed by, “Sorry, I didn’t mean that. I’m in a bad mood today.” You can’t just walk away like that. Do you expect others to understand that and forgive you-again and again when you do it again and again? We can control our moods-we are our master.
Master your Mind or be Mastered by Mind.
Not a single angry word slipped out of the Buddha’s lips even when the party He was talking to cursed and swore at Him. Nope-no moody blues for He who is ever mindful and is a master of His mind. Don’t want any excuse from you again!
