Dealing With Anger

Jun 1, 2004
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


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


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.
