Directions: Read the passage given below and answer the question that follow (Q. Nos. 91-99) by selecting the most appropriate options:
One of the unhealthiest emotions is anger. It destroys out ability to think clearly, properly and in totality. Anger also has adverse impact on health. If you ask a selection of people what triggers their anger, you would get a wide range of answers. However, whatever the cause, even a single word spoken in anger can leave a lasting impression on a person’s heart and has the ability to ruin sweetness of any relationship.
A sage once said, “How can these be peace on earth if the hearts of men are like volcanoes?” We can live in harmony with others only when we overcome anger and make room for peace. So how can we set about creating that sense of peace within ourselves? It starts with the realization that we do have the choice to think and feel the way we want to. If we look at what it is that makes us angry, we might discover there is nothing that has the power to make us feel this way. We can only allow something a trigger our anger – the anger is a way in which we respond to an event or person. But because we are so used to reacting on impulse, we forget to choose how we want to feel, and end up reacting inappropriately, leaving ourselves with angry feelings.
Mediation helps us create personal space within ourselves so that we have the chance to look, weigh the situation, and respond accordingly, remaining in state of self-control. When we are angry, we have no self-control. At that moment, we are in a state on internal chaos, and anger can be a very destructive force.
Stability that comes from practice of meditation can create a firm foundation, a king of positive stubbornness. Others can say whatever they want, and it may also be true but we don’t lose our peace or happiness on account of that. This is to respect what is eternal within each of us.
We give ourselves the opportunity to maintain our won peace of mind, because let’s face it, no one’s going to turn up at our door with a box full of peace and say, “Here, I think you could do with some of this today!” There is a method which could be described a sublimation, or the changing, or the changing or form. With daily practice and application of spiritual principles in our practical life, experience of inner peace can come naturally.

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky.
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a gray mist on the sea’s face and a gray dawn breaking.
I must go down to the seas again, for the call of running tide.
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied
And all I ask is windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray all the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must go down to the seas again to the vagrant gypsy life
To all gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over
