Why you should drop your anger Immediately
I had an interesting realization today. One of which I may have had several times before but that I’d forgotten.
I was having some problems with my boss at one of my jobs. I’m not going to bore you with the details, but I was basically angry with him. From a certain perspective, I had a right to be angry with him. Or rather from a certain state of consciousness. From his perspective, I’m sure he also had his legitimate grievances. But that is not the point I am trying to make.
Anyway, back to the story. In a way this anger was good because it propelled me to take more action than I had been taking and to move on to doing what I truly want to do with my life. Without this anger and discomfort, I wouldn’t have made nearly as much progress towards my dreams
And yet this still isn’t the point of my story. I read a statement many years back. It said that “All Consciousness is One.” The question to be asked is, “Is this really true?” If it is true then how does that impact me in my daily life?
Over time, I’ve come to realize that this statement is true. I can’t prove it to you or anyone else. I just know it from my contemplations, life experience and what I’ve seen with my spiritual eye. This means that all people and living beings are tied into one universal consciousness.
Now back to my problem. Today I felt my anger again at work. Even though this is an issue that is in the past because my boss is no longer my boss. I’ve arranged things so that he can’t burden me anymore with his disagreeable policies. And yet I still had that anger subconsciously lingering. I’ve been finding it hard to release this anger on a subconscious basis. The main thing is that I realized my anger was making me unhappy. I couldn’t tune into spirit and be my true self as long as I was experiencing anger.
Here is the problem with anger. It instantly hurts me when I get angry. Not only does it affect the person I direct my anger at, it also affects my interactions with everyone else around me. It creates a weakness in my Aura. It attracts more negativity into my life. The anger that is directed to someone else immediately comes back to me because we are all one consciousness. I can’t limit the anger to someone else because we are all, really one; so this anger is hurting mostly me. The other person doesn't even have to respond to or acknoledge my anger and so he could be immune to it.
• From the higher consciousness perspective, I was only getting angry at myself.
• Anger is really Fear in Disguise.
• If I had no Fear, I would have no need for anger. (Luckily, I realized early on that the whole purpose for God putting this person in my life was to get me moving quickly in a new direction. Actually also to learn about the destructive power of anger as well.)
• My anger did double damage. It immediately hurt me and everyone around me. When I was angry and fearful, I was not able to perform well at work, nor did I have any peace of mind or tranquility. If I had kept it up, my life would have been in ruins. In fact, my subconscious anger is still lingering and tainting my work experience so I don’t enjoy it as much. It’s like a button is pressed – whenever I see my boss, I just get into a certain anger-mode. Luckily, this is getting less and less all the time.
• Actually at the time of this edit I’ve completely released my anger and fear.
So if you feel anger at someone, realize that you are actually experiencing Fear. You have somehow lost control of something. Ask yourself if you are angry, or if you are really just being fearful. What is it that you Fear? Try to neutralize your anger because it is hurting you. Anger is a form of mental carcinoma.
People are always trying to control their outer circumstances; myself included. Realize in the end that you don’t have to control the outer world -- nor can you. Instead just control your inner world. God or Spirit brings you problems for growth. You have to learn to trust your higher self if you want to live a happier and more harmonious life. Live from your imagination and the things you want will gradually come into your life. Do all you can to achieve your goals but also visualize your desired results as already having been achieved.
This is called “As If Thinking.” Think, feel and imagine from your desired result. It’s a much better way to live. It brings an instant state change. And guess what: Everyone else will feel this change. They will respond to you accordingly. Remember we are all of the same consciousness. We are all divine sparks of God.
This also means that you will start attracting the ideas and people you need to help you reach your goal. It doesn’t mean you won’t have to work toward your goal. For work is the physical plane equivalent of thought. But you must have the right state of mind to reach your desired state in the imaginary world of the higher planes. Only once you reach the goal inwardly, can you ever hope to achieve it outwardly.
Remember: Anger will hurt you more than anyone else.
