You say you are angry about..... a lot of things. Well, the first thing to tell you - and this is the good news - your probably not. Sound stupid?
OK, it sounds stupid
But stick with me.
Somewhere, there is something you are not looking at. Something inside you which you are angry about. Something you think you can't change, or
perhaps really can't change. Something in your life. There are things we are all angry about, never ending war, the collapsing economy, but I don't
feel these are the cause of your anger. But you are like a big bath full of anger, and it only takes the slightest thing to make that anger spill
So what are you going to do about it?
You need to take out the anger and look at it, face it head on, stare it in the eye, get to know it. Feel it. If you can get out on your own
somewhere, in a big park, out in the country, then do that. Then allow yourself to get angry. Really. Allow that anger to bubble up, feel it, don't
suppress it any more. Get to know it. Start feeling what it actually feels like, analyse it. Realise that there is something in you which is the
beginning of this anger. Cry! let it out. For as long as you need. And it will pass. You will start deflating, coming down from that high angry place,
feel your body relax. feel that worn out empty feeling as the anger leaves you. Try and look into that space and start thinking about where the anger
comes from. What is it that is the cause of it all? What in your past are you angry about. Is it still reasonable to be angry all this time later? Can
you put it into perspective?
Maybe you'll find that there is no longer any need to carry that anger around with you any more. Perhaps you'll find there is something you can do,
something you can change which will help you get over the anger. You might find that just realising where your anger comes from will stop it from just
bubbling away under the surface all the time, so you will find you naturally get less angry in all those other situation, or stop getting angry at
My overly long winded point, I think, is that it is not all those little things that make you angry - they just trigger the anger which is already
there. By solving the original issue, you get rid of that anger.
Yes. Meditation will help you a lot. But it needs to be focused. Perhaps if you don't have a safe place to do the above exercise then meditating on
the source of the anger will be a benefit to you. Perhaps you could do both... Identify the source of the anger. Meditate on that, put it into
perspective. Take away it's power. Everything else will fall in to place.
If you need help finding out where the anger comes from let me know in a few days time. I might be able to help you find out. But I have the feeling
you will know what I am talking about.
Peace, love and light
