How does the sage prevent external discord
from disturbing inner silence?
One way is to increase the time
between the stimulus and the reaction
(Close you eyes and count off ninety seconds --

In one minute plus one-half minute
the physiological part of any emotion
will be flushed out of the human body.

So you don't want to be angry?
Then don't think angry.
I have tried this and it works.
