Once Teacher asked his students:
“Why, when people quarrel, they scream?”
“Because they lose their composure,” – said one.
“But why shout if another person is with you? – The Teacher asked. – Can you not talk to him quietly? Why shout if you are angry?”
The students offered their answers, but none of them arranged the Teacher.
In the end, he explained:
“When people are unhappy with each other and quarrel, their hearts move away. In order to cover this distance and hear each other, they have to scream. The more they get angry, the louder they shout.
And what happens when people fall in love? They do not shout, on the contrary, they speak quietly. Because their hearts are very close, and the distance between them is very small.
And when they fall in love even more, what happens? – Continued the Teacher. – They do not speak, but only whisper and become even closer in their love.
In the end, even whispering becomes unnecessary. They just look at each other and everyone understands without words. It happens when there are two loving people nearby.
So, when arguing, do not let your hearts move away from each other, do not utter words that further increase the distance between you. Because there may come a day when the distance becomes so great that you will not find the way back.”
