God is Love and All, therefore everything that is in truth real, has Love as its foundation. This foundation, in any moment, may or may not appear to be visible and available, but it is always there. In every person, situation or event, this Loving foundation, possibility and choice, exist. The ego, placing itself in opposition to All, is in truth nothing. The ego’s tools, such as that of anger, is thus not a real expression of who in truth we are. It is only when we believe that our illusions are more real than our truth, that we get affected by the ego’s tools and mindset. Anger, not having Love as its foundation, is in truth not real. Yet, anger does indeed appear real to those who have yet to awaken to the truth in them. Do not despair, for even beyond the false concept of anger, the truth exist and patiently awaits your awakening. All of Love’s expressions are never more than a choice away. You are not bad or less spiritual for experiencing anger, the delusion as real. You are simply asleep to your true nature, and there is no need to judge those who sleep. Once we have slept long enough, we will awaken. Anger, just as all of the ego’s tools, will after used enough times, help you see and feel how unlike it is to the truth in you. Once you begin to realize how unlike it is to you, how unproductive and hurtful it is, and have punish yourself and others enough times, you will get sick and tired of its results. It is then that you will want it no more. It is then that you will want and look for a better way. Anger then, when properly perceived, becomes a catalyst for you to awaken. Therefore, there is no need to judge it, yourself or others, as bad or not spiritual, simply because you experienced a falsity as true. Understanding this, let us offer anger, and everyone else who was a part of that experience, our gratitude. They have helped us realize that we no longer need to use it, nor want to support or represent it.
Anger does not in truth balance any scales, and thus is not justified. That being said, being itself unreal, there is nothing “wrong” with anger. There is nothing wrong for thinking that a nightmare is real while you are in it. As we grow, heal and awaken, anger is a tool and a part of a process that one sometimes chooses to use, express and experience in order to learn how to deal with that type of person or situation in a more forgiving, peaceful and productive manner. Thus, gratitude not anger, would be the “justified” response to those who are helping us awaken. What else but our gratitude, could we logically express to those who are assisting us in seeing and experiencing how unproductive anger really is? What else but appreciation could we have for those who are helping us find a more productive and loving way of co-existing on this planet. Thanks to our experience with our brothers and sisters, we can now see that anger is just a choice we make when we are lost, and are buying into a fairy tale as real. The more experience we have in life, the more we see the wisdom of aligning with our true loving nature, the less need we have for anger. The less angry we become, the less hurt we feel, and the more peace we experience. The more peace we experience, the more grateful we become for our experience on this planet. Next time someone “makes you” angry, remember, that because God is Love and All, that the gift of peace is always there patiently awaiting for you to choose it instead of your pain. Now, when anger comes knocking at our mind’s door, we know that the ego is just trying to have us support the false in us as true. Let us walk through the ego’s veils, past the false, align with the truth in us, our loving and forgiving nature, and return to the state of peace.
Today, let us see, understand and acknowledge, that it is our sisters’ and brothers’ participation in our life, that is actually helping us awaken from the dream of anger. For the part that they play in our awakening process, let us justifiably respond to them with appreciation and gratitude, not with judgment and anger. Let us also be aware that only the thoughts that we entertain with our time, focus and energy, can drive and fill our days. Today, when an angry thought comes, stop it right there on its tracks, tell it that it is a lie, that it does not represent the truth in you, and that you will no longer be entertaining it nor investing your time, focus and energy, on it. Then use that exact same time, focus and energy, to support thoughts, like forgiveness, that align you with your true loving nature. Now, when a negative thought about person x comes in, instead of entertaining and thus growing that thought, pray for person x, pray for their peace, joy, healing and awakening. Being all One, what you ask for “others” you will experience yourself. Then, with your whole heart, mind and soul, offer gratitude to God and person x, for helping you find peace where you once thought that only anger was possible. But be aware, that the ego will not quit so easily. This new way of reacting to your thoughts must be repeated over and over again, until it becomes second nature to do so. The more you practice being who in truth you are, the more natural this behavior will become. Today, when anger comes knocking, simply remind yourself: “I have tried the ego’s tool of anger a hundred times before and it has gotten me nowhere that I desire to be. Being Love’s creation, I can choose forgiveness and peace instead of judgment and anger. Today, I forgive because I am worthy of peace.”
Today, when an anger thought knocks at your mind’s door, stop for a moment and recall where such a thought takes you, nowhere that you want to be. This action puts you back in control of your own mind. Now, in control of your thinking, use that anger thought, not to punish yourself or another, but instead to trigger in you the desire to choose a more productive path. Your true destination is the state of peace. If you desire to reach your destination, then you must proceed in its direction. Peace is an expression of Love, and thus any of Love’s expressions move you in the direction of peace. Forgiveness and gratitude are two such expressions. Forgive instead of being judgmental and angry, and you will find yourself on the path to peace. Be grateful to those who are part of your healing and awakening process, and your path to peace will be assured.
