Anger is a strange phenomenon! We like it as well as we hate it!
Thus; we feel; though we may not overtly say it; that anger is a sign of liveliness, heroism and even divinity. Thus; we find that anger against injustice, oppression, exploitation, fanaticism, barbarism, inequality, is directly or indirectly; not only justified; but actually adored!
But having said that; we read several examples where anger is condemned and loathed! Thus; the anger that leads to hatred, vengeance, revenge, indiscriminate violence, terrorism and other malicious crimes; is abhorred!
In short; anger is like electricity, which if properly channellized serves constructive purpose and if short circuited, leads to hazards.
If and when the anger within us erupts uncontrollably like a volcano; it manifests in indiscriminate violence in our speech, writing, physical behavior and other transactions. Thus in a spur of moment we may shout, abuse some one in public interview, write harsh letters or articles, physically assault some one, file a suit in a court of law, or actually go further and get involved in worse sociopathic activities.
Thus; if our anger is not managed properly, our otherwise selfless and divine anger against injustice, oppression, exploitation, crimes, corruption etc; may turn into indiscriminate violence against self or the other innocent people at home or in the society. I need not give examples; as they are too obvious.
If our anger related to personal matters, is not managed properly; then we may lose friends, may get distanced from our parents or children, or may get isolated as asocial individuals in the society. We may turn into antisocial or criminal elements in the society and may also; have to be convicted, jailed and punished in accordance with the gravity of the bout of our anger!
Is it not true that we often repent because of unleashing a violent bout of anger on our parents, children, friends or spouse? Mismanaged anger is a source of “avoidable pain, agony and misery” for self and others.
Having seen these hazards of mismanaged anger; it is obvious that anger management is extremely important and essential. We have to mange anger properly so that we or the others; don’t have to suffer and/or repent.
Let us realize that the anger; can not be eradicated. To a greater or lesser extent; it is going to be with us for ever. Hence we should not keep trying to be free from anger! Our anger has to be transformed into objective and benevolent force.
How can we achieve this?
Many steps are described in “SUPERLIVING”; (available on 175 international websites for free download) which lead to; culmination of; every metabolic, endocrine and nervous activity responsible for anger; into “most fulfilling; holistic perspective, thinking, feelings and behavior conducive to individual and universal blossoming!
One may not believe in this but verify oneself!
