Anger is okay, acting it out is not okay.
Be forgiving about our own anger. We need to not harm others.
Anger is a powerful emotion that inspires us to move quickly in a heated way.
Anger can cloud reason and inspire stupid stuff and is what leads to war.
When we lose our temper there can be a lot of guilt (self-anger). Acting out anger is not knowing how to deal with frustration.
The best way to deal with anger is to pretend it’s a sun bleached, dead, dry, field. To transform our anger, we have to give it fertilizer, water and shade for month before we try and cultivate love.
Till the soil, meditate, exercise, catch yourself when you get to the red zone and breathe into the temper.
When we’re debating about any issue and we get angry, it doesn’t convince someone else. We can only convince someone through connection.
One moment of anger undoes the genuine connection we’ve built with someone else.
If you feel angry, make yourself feel like a dead piece of wood. Be still and don’t act our your anger.
Leave the room, not in anger, but out of not wanting to hurt the other person.
To get out of anger, start breathing. Take 2 ½ minutes to leave or breathe into the anger. Breathing helps us be kind.
Breathe deeply into the black, hot fear-based energy.
