'Anger' Chapter

Anger

Anger isn’t about what we think. Thinking people get angry. Ego based anger is insane, and part of why we fear anger is that it threatens the ego. Maybe the popular understanding of anger is mistaken, and maybe looking for others to either fix our anger or fix themselves so we won’t be angry at them, is even crazier still. Your feelings are real, your world is real, and it’s no ones fault.

“When angry, count to four. When very angry, swear.” Mark Twain (American Humorist, Writer and Lecturer. 1835-1910)

“When anger rises, think of the consequences” Confucius (China’s most famous teacher, philosopher, and political theorist, 551-479 BC)

“Anger will never disappear so long as thoughts of resentment are cherished in the mind. Anger will disappear just as soon as thoughts of resentment are forgotten.” Buddha (Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.)

Focus Anger

Thinking Anger

Beware. Anger seems to be an inflammatory topic. We all deal with anger frequently if not daily, and we have a lot of ways of dealing with it. We are actually told more about anger than we are about love.… Seek More

Clear Anger

What it comes down to, and hypnosis proves this, is what you don’t know and what you ignore, can and does hurt you. What you are pushing away continues to operate on its own even without your understanding. Thus we… Seek More

Warped Thinking

Redress isn’t revenge, and this brings us to the second brain that differentiates between the sources of things. It prevents us from trying to mate with a fence post or eat rocks. At least for most. Some people are remarkably… Seek More

A Ride in Your Head

Any student of logic knows that logic is just a form of cognitive reality checking.  It is a function of the monkey mind taken to a cerebral level, and logic can be satisfied by any consistency. This is why even… Seek More

Notice That You Are

Interpersonal expectations, they seem almost a certain recipe for grief, no? I tend to live by trusting a dog to poo on the carpet. It isn’t about any personal assault. It is just how the dog is. Then it’s marvellous… Seek More

Experience Of Anger

My sensory development is unusual, so the context for my experience is different. Some “normal” experience is muted for me and this makes them call me autistic. Do you have extra sensory perception? Extra-sensory perception is ill defined. For me,… Seek More
