true wisdom comes from seeing the archetypal solution to a problem rather than allowing a reaction to the single event.

How and why?
Buddha [Siddhārtha Gautama] is thought to have said, in essence, being angry at someone is like picking up a hot stone to throw at them; you are the one who gets burned.
When we react with defensiveness, for one example of so many habitual responses, we are simply exchanging energy with the person, feeding their means of attack, while enforcing your own propensity for being controlled.
