Inner Journey: HOW DO YOU WORK WITH ANGER?
“Character isn’t inherited. One builds it daily by the way one thinks and acts, thought by thought, action by action. If one lets fear or hate or anger take possession of the mind, they become self-forged chains.”
— Helen Douglas
How do you feel about anger, in yourself and in others?
How do you deal with it?
Anger is powerful energy. If we are afraid of this energy, we may attempt to deny or hide it. And when we lack control of the energy of anger, we impose it on other people or things.
The ways we react to anger usually reflect how we experienced anger as children and how our own anger when we were young was handled by the adults at the time.
In reality, anger, like any emotion, brings us information. It tells us how we feel about what is being experienced. If we receive anger’s message and learn more about ourselves, the energy will pass.
“Too often we underestimate how quickly our feelings are going to change because we underestimate our ability to change them.”
— David Gilbert
A Note from the Universe
Whenever an escalator to “success” ascends without you, (just “swoosh-h-h-h-h-h!” right into the sky leaving you on the ground), it’s always because there’s another one on the way that will go even higher, with your name plastered all over it.
Not to mention a booming sound system, tricked out wheels, and fuzzy dice.

“Does it not appear to you that versatility is the true and rare characteristic of that rare thing called genius – versatility and playfulness? In my mind they are both essential.”
-Mary Russell Mitford, 1813
Versatility, flexibility, enthusiasm – these are all traits that I would associate with genius. You’ve got to be able to go with the flow, take what comes and adapt – and you’ve got to love what you’re doing to be able to keep doing it until you reach the desired results. It’s hard work, and it’s also insight, seeing “inside” and having that vision that keeps you going.
