An elderly couple would constantly argue about almost
everything. The wife would always make sure that she had the
last say in any argument.
“I’ll jump and curse on your grave .....
I’ll jump and curse on your grave!" she would state vehemently.
Not long later the man died. His last
request was that he be buried at sea.
To protect himself upon knowing of a threat, a person can resort to all sorts of actions including those that would eliminate his adversary. Actions arising of hatred, vengeance or fear are unwholesome.
Words and thoughts of anger and revenge cause mental suffering to a person. He or she will not have mental peace.
A wise person always watches his or her mind of any negative states. He or she learns to forgive and let go. Enmity, ill will and anger will not do any person any good.
