One day the Master asked his students: - Why people yell at each other when they are angry?
The students thought for a moment: - Because we have lost our patience - said one - that's why we yell.
- But why yell when the other person is next to you? - the Master asked
- Is it not possible to speak lower? Why do we yell when we are angry?
The students gave several answers but none of them satisfied the Master. Finally, he explained: - When two people are angry at each other, their hearts separate very far. To cover that distance they yell to be heard. The angrier they are, the louder they have to yell to be heard.
Then the Master asked: - What happens when two people are in love? They don't yell, they speak with a soft voice. Why? Because their hearts are very close and the distance between them is very short.
The Master continued: - When they love each other even more, what happens? They don't speak, they whisper and they get closer in their love. Finally, they don't even need to whisper. They just look at each other and that's it.
That's right, the closer their hearts, the more they love!
Then the Master said: - When you argue don't let your hearts to separate. Don't say words that will make them separate even more. Because one day, the distance will be so much that you won't be able to find the way back.
