Think of the Sky

Think of the Sky

Once it happened that a seeker came to Bayazid, one Sufi mystic, and asked, “Master, I am a very angry person. Anger happens to me very easily; I become really mad and I do things. I cannot even believe later on that I can do such things; I am not in my senses. So, how to drop this anger, how to overcome it, how to control it?”

Bayazid took the head of the disciple in his hands and looked into his eyes. The disciple became a little uneasy, and Bayazid said, “Where is that anger? I would like to see into it. The disciple laughed uneasily and said, “Right now, I am not angry. Sometimes it happens.” So Bayazid said, “That which happens sometimes cannot be your nature. It is an accident, It comes and goes. It is like clouds — so why be worried about the clouds? Think of the sky which is always there.”
