Anger :- A gift or a curse?? …. Read on….
I sat with my anger. I held its hand and thanked it. I breathed deeply. Looked at it. Acknowledged it and then asked, “Why are you here?”
“I am here”, anger replied, “because you let everyone violate you and take you for granted. You donot draw your boundaries.”
I sat there, frozen, in silence, absorbing this. Anger, which I thought was bad, which I was taught is the root cause of every evil, which I was conditioned to believe it has to be controlled, was actually playing a beautiful role in my life. It was a gift.
That made me think, “If I embraced this gift, the gift of drawing boundaries, what would happen?” “Will anger go away”?, I thought to myself.
I went on an inner pilgrimage. I went back in time and observed all incidents that had made me angry. The underlying aspect in all those situations was that I felt violated in some way. Not respected, not honored in some way. I allowed people to take away my power, I felt helpless. And there came anger to protect me. Because I could not protect or honor myself.
Anger was playing a wonderful role.
So, there I was sitting with “anger” again. “Tell me anger”, what should I do?”
Anger replied, “Draw boundaries, Re-claim your power and I WILL BE GONE”.
You may ask, “What happened next”? “Did you apply boundaries? Did anger go away?”
“No, Not Really”, I say. It is a PART of me. How can a part of ME go away? You see, every emotion is a part of us. We are, as Carl Jung, says, a 360 degree with various personality parts.
“Then what’s the point?”, you may ask.
“Well, Anger, right now stands away – may be as a gatekeeper, guarding, not controlling – just watching whether I let any unwelcome guests inside.
As long as I don’t, it keeps quiet. The moment I “Allow” someone to take my power away, whenever I am helpless or let anyone violate or manipluate me, whenever I ‘allow’ this, the Gatekeeper comes ALIVE.
Anger is a guardian. It’s an ally. I understand it’s gift. The more I apply and use this gift, the more it just stands at the threshold, ‘watching’.
The moment I don’t apply the gift, it walks right back in.
Every emotion is a gift. You just have to sit with it and ask, “Why are you here? What role are you playing?”
Can you do that with your anger? With your fear, insecurity, jealousy, resistance?
🌹A No No No story🌹
Yesterday I was in a business training where the trainer asked us a following question
“If I give you 1cr rupees will you jump from the plane?”
Before I go further I would like you to answer this question.
*What would you reply?*
Most of the people in the room said *”No No No”* there where few of the other interesting answers but a NO was the maximum.
On this the trainer said “you all answered me before I could even inform you wether I’ll give you a parachute or not, or even if the plane is in the sky or on ground.”
This really made me go to all those places in my life where I just say NO NO NO without even considering it on a auto pilot.
Are you doing the same?
Where, when, what, why and how have you made a NO NO NO a auto pilot in your life?
Have you ever wondered how many NO’s are you using from the life you desire and from what you know is possible?
If you would choose to live your life with 🌹YES🌹
*YES* I can.
*YES* let’s do it.
*YES* I love you.
*YES* I am different.
*YES* I don’t like you.
*YES* I want money.
Won’t this crate more ease in your life?👍
✔️Are you willing to have a YES life?✔️
Personal development doesn’t need to be something arduous or stuffy.
Rather it’s a lifelong process of gaining skills, setting big goals, and increasing confidence.
Through personal empowerment and spiritual growth, you can align with a more fulfilling and higher quality life.
Developing yourself personally is about realizing and maximizing your full potential, and uncovering the true reason for why you are alive in the physical.
Without focusing on your personal growth first, your service to others will be limited because you will not have the required energy or skills to invest in creating a better world for you and for humanity.
As you continue forward, you will receive signs and guidance that you are on your right path and how specifically you should continue.
Love opens this guidance.
Love opens the door.
Listen and act upon the guidance you receive, and the door will open wider, allowing more growth and more of your authentic truth to shine into this present moment.
Keep taking steps to bring blessings and growth into your own life by focusing on growing personally, stepping into your power, and aligning with more of your authentic truth.
Nurturing your personal growth through reading, journaling, meditating, and developing skills is a foundation you can then build on to accomplish your life’s work.
