Yesterday I said that the Ayurvedic dosha Pitta, if it is not balanced in the body, can show in anger and aggression. I also said that Gyan Yoga is a good spiritual way to take if you are suffering from too much Pitta and thus from anger. Anger always has a target, a direction. It is directed towards someone or something. Anger is like a fire which doesn’t only burn others but also yourself. Too much Pitta in the body also means that you have too much acidity and it is like a burning in your body. Pitta also creates hyperactivity. So Gyan Yoga is the solution.
Gyan Yogis say that there is no duality. Everything is one and everyone is the same because God is in everybody. So if God is in you, in me and in everyone around, against whom do you want to direct your aggression? Anger can only exist in duality. You make the difference between good and bad and then you get angry against the bad side. But when everything is God, then everything is the same, everyone is love. In duality there is a thinking of possession. This is yours and this is mine. I own this and you own that.
I have a Gyan Yogi attitude in this way. I believe that everything belongs to everyone. So when I stay in someone’s house, I also open the fridge and for example cook with those vegetables without thinking that I did not buy them. On the other hand I do not mind to fill this fridge again, if I will eat what I buy or if someone else eats it because I consider this as everybody’s food. If you are in Gyan Yoga, it doesn’t make a difference. And this is how you can defeat anger and cure problems with Pitta.
