Anger…why do most folks have a negative attitude towards this quality? One undergoes a bout of anger and more often than not feels miserable or repentant or end up justifying their behavior…

Further the phrase Anger Management is stuffy… suffocating in itself.. It kind of implies that anger is to be controlled, managed..lest it explodes… its not something that should erupt in the first place.. its like instructing a volcano… that please spew no more than these many units of molten lava in an hour or day…

Luckily the volcano does not listen…it erupts in in its full glory….red hot.. angry…and then subsides again in due course of time….

Mankind is a volcano.. Each individual is a volcano…however am not implying that you go on spewing fire on every individual you bump into…The whole world would be aflame.. Screw the other…not literally though ;-).. Do not screw yourself either… Understand yourself.. is the key..

It is this journey of self understanding that leads to self acceptance… the other is of no concern… its a journey within…its an exploration within.. Please refer to my earlier blog “Howl with the Jackals” to let go of the Volcano within…

Anger is natural. it reflects aliveness.it does not indicate a dead/frozen quality..it is not a buried asset that is to stored beneath the surface..

anger is natural” is a key phrase I would like to emphasize.. Not the one preached by most… that “anger is bad” is what most commonly circulates in the form of advice..as advice is totally free 😉

Anger is bad is a “mind-set” that can be dropped.. “Mind-set” as such is a very crude word.. it indicates rigidity.. it indicates inflexibility..it induces false notions of tradition.. lineage…belief.. dictums…to be followed.. and once an individual is forced to follow… resentment sets in…as each individual is fiercely independent deep within himself…

Imposing one’s view on another as a dictum is crude, crass… but then it facilitates the baton of power onto a select few to control the individual and the masses… and that is exactly what individuals end up doing albeit in smaller groups or circles…

Mind-flex” may be a better phrase that needs to be adopted..by individuals of today..It indicates change, flexibility, suppleness, an open-ness…  qualities that facilitate one falling into a state of relaxation..Incidents and viewpoints come and go…some which fall within our band of thoughts… some which don’t….With a mind-flex approach… the “mind-set” mechanism in which thoughts stick onto an individual is done away with…

A window of possibility…that there may exist another side to a coin, unseen at the moment.. also sets in…A more mature man settles in.. a more mature humanity sets in…A space where anger is “not managed”, but a space where anger is transformed into a possibility..a blossoming of some quality higher…of some quality deeper… a new window of opening…..from where acceptance.. relaxation flow in of their own accord..To move higher, understanding the lower is after-all needed…
