The first drawback of anger is that it destroys your inner peace; the second is that it distorts your view of reality. If you think about this and come to understand that anger is really unhelpful, that it is only destructive, you can begin to distance yourself from anger.

- Anger is like a monkey in a cage. It is always there jumping up and down banging on the bars. It wants to get out. It is always looking for a way to get out. It needs to be released from time to time to express it self.
For angry people it is not like steam in a kettle and builds until it blows. Anger is always there because the thoughts are always there. The need or belief that anger is necessary is always there.
The belief is the anger. The belief that anger is needed to bring balance. The monkey must express itself.
This belief must change. Angry thoughts are from a perceived reality not facts but the perceived meaning of facts. The monkey needs to be let go and the cage emptied. Reality will be restored and peace will be found.Apr 16, 2012
