Question: Moving from opinions to the realm of facts, I feel an intense need to look very closely at my mind’s desires but there is anger. What is this anger and why is it there? I want to understand it.
Speaker: Realization becomes anger in absence of action. You get a faint glimmer, you see something and in spite of knowing that that is the direction to go, you still allow yourself to be blocked. The energy that should have gone into movement towards the light, that energy will now express itself as anger. Anger is nothing but the expression of your own frustrated energy. You know the direction to go, and you are not going in that direction, that energy will accumulate and spill over. This is called anger.
Move. Deploy that energy rightly. Anger will no longer be there.
