People see anger as strength but there is nothing powerful about anger. Anger is what happens when you're mad you couldn't get your way.
I see anger as confusion,
one is confused at anothers actions and depending on the action that that makes one confused it can make anger arise.
Anger is simply confusion.
Not sure who see anger as strength, that has me a little confused, that view point you just stated, however the confusion I have about the matter
isn't a type of confusion that makes anger arise, simply a confusion that creates an inquiring perspective of mind, who thinks anger is power?
I think you are angry at God (confused about God) that is why you try to limit God the creator of all to being one of his/her own creations while
having an opposite.
I get angry at God because I cannot understand why things happen the way they do at times, however its faith that keeps my trust in God, I don't need
to make God out as having limitations and being just one not the other.
God is all, God is the universe, nature, the living world, I guess I just agree a fair bit with beliefs of Deism or Pantheism in that respect.
Gods not angry, that is limiting God to have human confusion on why things happen the way they do or why people do what they do.
However if God is all then he is a part of anger like when I am angry at God for being confused, God is a part me and I am apart of God and that anger
stems from my understand or lack of I should say so God is anger or knows the anger that is created from my misunderstanding, its up to an individual
how much anger they want experience and like some have said its a weakness if they allow anger to take over,
That is a part of the test of life, yes everyone will be anger but its how they handle the anger that is important, too much of anything on its own
is no good for beings of duality, there needs to be a balance.
Anger arises, feel it and release it. one needs to find their own technique how to handle their own anger.
I would assume many would think of something peaceful and calm and loving to calm their mind and clear the hazy cloudy mind they have to find more
We have been taught to have low self-esteem, believe power is evil, or even believe there is no free-will.
Have you been taught that?
Sorry if you have, that might explain why you must limit things to what only you can understand or how you want them to be.
Power is both or cab be used for good and evil.
Free will between man and environment man inhabits, to God its not free will if God is everything, God already knows how the story ends so to speak
and simply doesn't interfere.
So we have free will between each other and our environment, If God does interfere I believe it would be undetectable and be able to be explained as
natural events of environment or celestial events. pretty much like ancient thinking that Zeus sending the lightning or any other natural phenomena
that is attributed to weather or know science of today.
That is not saying I don't agree with science or that its wrong, just that I believe that is how God would hide his/her interaction.
When I hear people claim God speaks or makes him self be seen and that is in a fashion of being speaking a known language or having form of a person
is when I tend to think its people needing that type of relationship with God to have a better understanding of what or who God is, I believe God
can take the form of a man ( I mean if God is all like I believe then there are no limitations) but anyone that interacts with that man would not
know it was God, they might believe it was but thats as far as it would go, it would be faith in the experience they had.
Beliefs are all we have and all we have really that allow us to have free will, our beliefs dictate our free will,
Some beliefs move people to do acts many other disagree with or condemn and vice versa.
Our beliefs are all we have, if they need to clash and create havoc in the living world then I guess there is a reason for it, I just don't
understand it at times and that is why sometimes that misunderstanding makes me angry at God and look up and ask why and at times use language without
much love in the words, however I have yet to have an occasion where I cannot calm my mind or where some higher power calms it for me without me
really knowing how my mind has become calm, its just comes hack to my beliefs and faith in what and who God is and I then I sort of understand how I
find the clarity to clear the haziness the anger created in my mind.
