“Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.” ~ Henri Nouwen; Dutch Catholic priest, professor, writer, and theologian.
“When anger rises, think of the consequences.” ~ Confucius.
We have all felt neglected, jealous, not understood, emotionally hurt, or psychologically insulted at some point in our lives; but, you must understand that anger is not something they made us feel in reality, such anger is something we chose to think and then create as an explosive feeling–due to our environments, events, ignorant people, yes; but anger is always a thought you create.
The management of our physical senses dictates what thoughts pop up into our minds, and thus which feelings we follow or allow to affect us–i.e., for example, if you cannot control your jealousy and you are always watching how others live and so compare their lives to yours, you might get angry at your life because you don’t have the opportunities for economic growth your neighbor has.
Anger is a thought which is not rational, and it only exists because we have formed a prideful image in our minds; and due to the ego most of the time not being rational either, you have now a perfect recipe for self-destruction.
When you see misery, poverty, animals being killed, wars, etc., in the world, you feel compassion and great empathy for the suffering of others. But why do you get angry…?? Does compassion exists along anger…?? Isn’t love or compassion the only reality and anger the thought which the ego creates out of selfish ignorance…?? Why follow the ego and get angry then…??
Anger is selfish by its illusive nature because it poisons and veils the clarity of God, of pure Love; therefore, when you allow your mind to create emotions or feelings of anger, you distance yourself from the ultimate reality and follow your own designed illusion.
You leave the Light of God to follow your own ego, which in your stressed mind might be an accepted process of love; however, true love and anger can never exist together–i.e., one is reality, the other a deceitful poison.
