When news of injustice or heartbreaking challenge in our lives hits us, our first reaction is to feel anger. There can be several ways to channel that anger into taking action which helps us cope with difficult situations to comprehend their place in relation to our spirit. Anger has its own energy which can be transmuted into positive, productive and life-saving creations. It shows us our boundaries. What we will not tolerate sends us an internal message. What we do with that message is up to us.
When we love someone or have a personal dedication to a cause or movement, a bond is created that sparks with emotion. When those things are hurt or threatened, our anger tells us it’s time to act. If we have a clear and educated mind to the circumstances, there are ways to counteract the anger without violence or harsh words. Our instincts can result in closer relationships if they bring out the dialogue and action needed to correct the behaviors and misunderstandings.
When we are angry enough to join in a protest or sign a petition to right a wrong, we can literally save lives improving the quality of life for everyone. Support groups, laws, amendments and rules have been formed from the act of channeling anger into action. Sometimes the anger we feel is at ourselves. Anger has passion, fire and flame. Imagine that flame as a light. Controlled calm, rational fire. This fire fuels the courage we need when it’s time to speak up, speak out and be heard over those things held dear to established norms. Use this fire as the catalyst for practicing integrity and growth.
Suppressing anger has consequences which can harm our physical, emotional and mental health. When we feel we have a voice, a platform or methods in which to channel these emotions into positive change, it makes a difference in our well-being. Carrying around anger from past relationships, mistakes and what other people have done and said can fill our heads with constant anxiety or rage.
The entertainment industry is filled with the “reality” concept in which people are forever yelling, screaming obscenities or throwing chairs. Their behavior is rewarded with high ratings and contracts for money. It gets into the consciousness of those who are addicted to watching pantomime who then start to believe this is how we show anger. Instead of these negative examples, we might be better served by learning how to use our emotions intuitively to synthesize their reactions for better results.
Anger can get us in a lot of unwanted situations and even put us in danger. We can learn how to process and respond instead of act without the thought of consequences. If we react in anger to someone who is on the emotional edge, they may try to harm us, themselves or an innocent bystander. If we can communicate to harness that anger energy in ourselves into positive life situations, we might be able to help someone else bring in calm and alleviate a lot of suffering.
So many have let anger rule their lives by carrying it deep inside until it begins to manifest physically. Anger has caused alcohol abuse, drug addiction, physical disease, mental illness and loss of the quality of life. It’s not okay to lash out at someone with anger just because you are mad at someone else. It’s up to us to recognize when our anger is unhealthily expressed it’s out of control. Being able to express it rationally, understanding why we feel it, using it to further our spiritual evolvement is key in transforming how the red sign is in flux with us.
We can be inspired into action if we are angry at ourselves for not taking better care of our health. Someone who has been sedentary for many years can get angry about a medical test and start walking every day. Anger at someone else for critiquing our talents can push us into further education or instruction that takes us to the top of our game. Anger at injustice can start a revolution for a more compassionate world. Anger is a wake-up call. How we answer it depends on our view of its purpose.
