THE TRUTH ABOUT ANGER 

In situations of conflict, we tend to become angry easily. We even think anger will help us ‘win our battles’, and we rely on it as if it were our trusted friend. The mind of anger, however, creates enemies and overwhelming situations. It leaves a trail of broken relationships, shattered hopes and lost opportunities in its wake.

And it doesn’t even feel good. Far from it, anger demoralizes and disempowers us. Even if, in the beginning, there’s a sense that our anger energizes us, eventually it leaves us feeling frustrated and resentful.

There’s a reason for this. According to Buddha anger is a delusion, an unpeaceful mind that can only produce suffering. It does this by distorting our perception, causing us to exaggerate problems so they feel unmanageable. Consequently, so much of our life feels impossible, which makes us even more angry and unhappy, both with ourselves and others.

USING MEDITATION TO CREATE TRANSFORMATION

 

If we were truly peaceful inside and had our mind under control, difficult people or circumstances would not be able to disturb this peace, and so we would feel no compulsion to blame anyone or regard them as our enemy.

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, How to Solve Our Human Problems

 

According to Buddha, if we want to be truly happy, we need to free ourself from the destructive influence of anger.

By meditating on the methods taught by Buddha we will be able to transform the energy of anger into a creative response that opens us up to resolutions and new possibilities.

Through this, we will be able to leave our habits of anger behind once and for all, and step into a new identity – someone who is always peaceful, happy, confident, beneficial, wise, and kind, regardless of our circumstances.
