“Don’t get upset over trivialities”

The next morning, Baba gathered the mandali at about eight o’clock. He questioned Chhagan about his sour disposition, which had been gloomy since the previous day. Baba then stated:

… Be a man! Don’t stick to petty things. Don’t get upset over trivialities.

Even supposing you do have an excuse or a cause for provocation, and your mood is upset in the excitement of the moment, don’t stick to that one petty cause and keep on brooding over it with swollen [puffed out, grumpy] cheeks and a cloudy expression. Immediately after the excitement dies down, try to cool off and forget what happened. Take the cause of irritation out of your mind forever. Don’t try to bring it back again and again to memory, harboring it and crying over it… Immediately after you are angry, forget everything.
