Why do we shout?



One day a saint asked his disciples, 'Why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?'

The disciples thought for a while and one of them said, 'We shout when we lose our calm.'

'But, why shout when the other person is just next to you?' asked the saint.
'Isn't it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you're angry?'

The disciples gave some other answers but none of them satisfied the saint.

Finally he explained, 'When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other through the great distance created.'

Then the saint asked, 'What happens when two people fall in love? They don't shout at each other but talk softly, why? Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is very small.'

The saint continued, 'When they start loving each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, they only whisper and get even more closer to each other. Finally they do not whisper, they only need to look at each other and that's all. That is how close two people are when they are in love.'

MORAL: When you argue do not let your hearts get distant, do not say words that could increase the distance between each other, else there will come a day when the distance will be so great that you will not find the path to return.
