In the same way, if you turn your attention to simply looking at the anger, it is impossible for it to persist on its own.
.
.
No matter how intense an emotion is, it will wear itself out and disappear naturally once you stop feeding it.
.
.
Also understand that in the end the most powerful anger attack is no more than a thought.
.
.
Take a closer look at this. Where does the anger get the power to dominate you to this degree?
.
.
Does it have a weapon?
.
.
Can it burn you like fire?
.
.
Can it crush you like a rock?
.
.
Can you locate it in your chest, in your heart, or in your head?
.
.
If the answer to this last question seems to be yes, does it have a color or a form?
.
.
You will probably have great difficulty in attributing such characteristics to it.

    Anger kills the spirit. Whether over a situation, or even politics. Awareness, and let it go.
