Have you ever been yelled at by another person for no obvious reason? Perhaps you state what is an obvious truth to you, but they don’t understand your perspective, and they react in anger, telling you how wrong you are and then they try to make you feel little or out of line? Its not a fun experience to go through, but if it does, there’s some spiritual perspective that can help you master it.
One truth I find helpful to remember is that loud yelling is no more impressive or influential than quiet whispering. A higher decibel level does not make anger more impressive, influential or scary. Error is error is error and no amount of yelling makes it a truth.
If faced with irrational yelling, face it down metaphysically with the truth that God is in control of the situation, not selfish temper. Know that there is one Mind only on the scene, causing everyone involved to express thoughtful discernment, rational reason, and respect for one another. Stay clear that man expresses the temper of God which is always patient, kind, thoughtful and considerate. Don’t be impressed by the “show” mortal mind is trying to put on in front of you. Refuse to be a mental audience for error, and spend all your mental energy on vehemently declaring spiritual truth about the situation that serves to defuse the anger, silence the outburst and restore peace and harmony.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “It requires courage to utter truth; for the higher Truth lifts her voice, the louder will error scream, until its inarticulate sound is forever silenced in oblivion” (Science and Health, p. 97).
Don’t let the yelling intimidate you or cause you to back down from what is right. Truth and Love must have the final say, and they will triumph when you hold your spiritual ground with what is right. The yelling can cease.
