“What Me Angry”

March 9, 2012

There isn’t an I in the spelling of anger. There is lots of I in the feeling and expression of anger.

When we are angry, what are we really angry about? Who are we really angry at? When we are angry, we forget that everything that happens to us happens for a reason.

We get angry because we take it personally. It’s not, and it is. It’s not personal because it doesn’t happen in order to hurt us. It is personal in that it happens for our growth. It’s for the growth that will take us outside ourselves and make us more available to serve others.

We forget that while we can’t see it, what’s happening is for our growth. We lose faith. It is then that we can remind ourselves to have the attitude of “This too is for the good”.

“A vain person is always angry at the world, because people rarely accord him the honor he feels he is due. A humble soul, however, is generally at peace with the world, because he feels he has received his fair share.” – Unknown

“When you’ve seen beyond yourself, then you may find, peace of mind is waiting there.” – George Harrison

“Only a life lived for others is worth living.” – Albert Einstein
