Our anger awakens us out of complacency and into action. ~ DiosRaw
“It is wise to direct your anger towards problems–not people; to focus your energies on answers–not excuses.” – William Arthur Ward
In Zen and Tao the trick is not to HOLD angry, but still experience anger. Why? Because we don’t rid ourselves of anger, it’s a conditioned state that’s had thousands of years to establish itself in our systems. What gets problematic is holding anger or “BEING angry” as an ongoing experience. “Welcome to hell” is another way of describing being angry. We all know that state, it sucks.
One of my favorite bloggers was kind enough to post the first quote and it clearly defines the value of experiencing anger. All things have value. The site is truly amazing and seriously informational and inspirational. Check it out: https://diosraw0.wordpress.com/
The second quote speaks to application and focus, the area that feelings of anger can drive us towards if we maintain perspective. If I must experience anger then I need to find the value by applying it towards something, right?
Anger, like everything, has value and gives purpose if seen in the light of perspective.
Be well, take care of you.
