Mastery consists not in abnormal dreams, visions and fantastic imaginings or living, but in using the higher forces against the lower — escaping the pains of the lower planes by vibrating on the higher. Transmutation, not presumptuous denial, is the weapon of the Master." — The Kybalion
Really? Prove it please. I hear this all the time, from so many venues: religion, spirituality, etc. It's always just a bunch of feel good self help counseling mumbo jumbo. Really, I'm all ears.

I remember attending a Dharma Talk with the famous Maezumi Roshi. He was a small boy when Nagasaki happened. He expressed his anger at this and cried angrily during the Dharma Talk. I was very young at the time and so deeply impressed by this man's passion.
The whole point of that Dharma Talk was to impress on all of us that Anger is Compassion when used properly to get work done (in the cellular sense; see MisterMonculus). He wanted us to realize Anger as a tool of compassion ( I know I repeated myself but it is an important concept).
Also you should check this out...en.wikipedia.org...
All women need to read about that. Men as well but check it out and see.
And finally, In the traditional Martial Arts from China that I study we have the concept of 'Gang Ging' or 'Fear Power'. Imagine someone creeps up behind you and sticks a needle in your ass; we use that energy to defeat the opponent.
All of our God given tools are useful. And we are going to need them all.
