Put the Light on Anger

posted by Guy Finley

Question: When I look at myself, it seems that my most prevalent emotion is anger. It’s always there, and I feel powerless to stop my raging thoughts. What can I do? I really am weary of my own out-of-control emotions.

Answer: You already know that your anger is destroying you. It is… and it will. The fact that you are tired of losing your life to these self-harming psychic states means you are ready for a change. Here is a new way to work with what’s been working you over: The next time some hostile state takes you over, either in thought — as in remembering something someone did to you in the past — or in an actual moment of conflict with someone standing before you, take the following inner steps as soon as you can remember yourself to do so: Start by seeing that something foreign to your True Nature has imposed itself on you, taken over your life. Once having done this, do nothing else except realize that while you may be temporarily powerless to stop the lower state from possessing you, you are empowered to recognize the negative state as the intruder that it is. This awareness, this conscious, unself-justifying awareness of your true pained condition, is what it means to put the Light on the problem. That’s your job. The Light will do its part if you’ll do yours. Persist until you are free!

    I can really relate to this. I can not shake the the thought of the people who hurt me. I’ll be driving to or from work and go though past situations over and over in my head. Situations where people have done things to get rid of me at work to higher their friend in my spot. The anger just keeps growing and I know that I am not strong enough or deep down don’t want to get rid of my anger I don’t know, the voice in my head has a strong hold. It’s like a cancer, and controls my life.
