Rage is an emotion that is highly misunderstood. Most people think that rage is a "negative" emotion; however, I'd argue that there has never been
sufficient change without an aspect of rage being involved.
Here is how the dictionary defines rage:
rage [ rayj ]
noun (plural rag·es)
1. extreme anger: sudden and extreme anger
tears of rage
2. angry outburst: an outburst of strong anger
flew into a rage
Typically, despite how the dictionary defines it, rage is an emotion which builds over time. Injustice and hardship is generally the culprit for the
While it is true that rage has destroyed many people; it can hardly be argued that any change that is worth noting can be mentioned without an aspect
of rage being involved in its fulfillment.
Firstly, rage is what causes a person to turn against an idea or policy. Without the rage, there would be no inclination to ever say or do anything
about an injustice. For example, when we charge a criminal with a crime, it certainly isn't done without some level of rage or disdain.
Rage is an earthly emotion. It is a constituent of the soulic body. Despite what many think the soul and the spirit are completely different
creatures. However, that is beyond the scope of this thread. For a more detailed explanation of what I mean, you can click on this link:
The Soul Vs. The Spirit
We all speak of "change," yet, few of us are rageful or disdainful enough to instigate it. It is unfortunate, really. Change rarely, if ever, comes
without revolution and anger.
There is not one revolution that ever occurred without rage being present. To think that any real change will come without a lashing out is living in
the proverbial "La-la land." It is nice to think that we can all just have dialogue and good thoughts and change will come, but, when one looks at
the truth, it's not possible.
Rage and Revolution
When it wells up from deep inside you, it is immediate, compelling, real. It is the only emotion strong enough to start a war – or stop one.
Rage can change laws, take down corporations and topple governments.
Rage drives revolutions.
People look at other people who are rageful and say, "Boy, he needs to get a life or get laid." No, he needs to vent. Why harm yourself by keeping
rage locked inside? It doesn't matter that others don't understand your reason for being rageful. They lack understanding through ignorance.
With knowledge, rage soon follows. Why? It is rather simple. When you know what is really going on and how ignorant the masses are to what is going
on, you can't help but be angry.
So, this leads me to the title of the thread. Is there going to be rage before the coming transition? Surely. If there is not, then there will be no
long awaited transition. Things will just continue to go down the path it has been going for the past 60-70 years.
You see, the spiritual forces which are pushing for a transition towards a positive future can do only so much. At some point, humans have to act.
Without the action of humanity, it is all for naught.
When people wake up to the fact that rage can be used for the benefit rather than the detriment of humanity, then we will see progress towards a
brighter future. Until that day comes, we will be stuck in both spiritual and secular darkness.
