Resentment, bitterness, inner anger --- how they get started

   Resentment, bitterness, inner anger have a starting point.  The 
   starting point is angry, bitter, resentful thoughts.  
   Resentment, bitterness, anger are built up through a mechanism, 
   through a process.  The secret to not having them is to nip the 
   process in the bud just when it is starting --- don't let 
   yourself think those angry and bitter thoughts.  At that point 
   you are in control --- you can choose not to think them and 
   stop yourself.  If you just let the process go without stopping 
   it anger feeds upon anger, anger reinforces anger, imagination 
   comes in and goes to work, and a whole vicious process is 
   started that takes over your mind and changes your whole 
   personality at a basic level, it changes the basic "you".  You 
   become a slave to it, a slave to a particular set of feelings, 
   attitudes, way of thinking.  It becomes part of you.  Habits 
   start as cobwebs and become cables.  It is like a habit that 
   starts as a cobweb and becomes a cable.  

   What causes angry, bitter thoughts?  A sense of injustice, 
   being wronged.
