    1. Feel the feeling arising;

    2. Acknowledge it as anger, rather than denying and suppressing it;

    3. Observe it, analyze the reasons and components of it;

    4. Embrace it, cradle it rather than rejecting it outright;

    5. Channel it constructively (creatively), rather than destructively
    (violently).


    Learning:

    "Hatred is never overcome by hatred and anger.
    Hatred is overcome by love, forbearance and forgiveness."
    The Buddha

    Clues:

    Anger is best dealt with by patience and forbearance;
    Hatred by forgiveness, tolerance and equanimity;
    Aggression by calming and quieting, and including;
    Violence by restraint, redirection and reconditioning.
