It is so easy to get consumed by the heat of anger. When you feel that someone has wronged you, when you feel cheated or misled, anger is often the go-to emotion. There might be satisfaction in replaying the scene again and again, and receiving validation of your experience from others around you; it might feel like you’ve resolved something by making it known to the world that ‘you are angry, and have every right to be!’, but in reality anger only keeps you in the past and leaves you an unconscious victim to your present. The antidote to anger is love. Give it without condition and fill your mind with so many loving thoughts, that it is impossible for even the greatest anger to reside there for very long.
