Anger comes from the absence of acknowledgment of self beauty. The anger that we have in the moment is the anger that we have toward ourselves.
- Sit quietly and look toward your right.
- Close your eyes, and think of something that has angered you.
- Feel your anger.
- Look again to the right; see how defined the anger has become. You are trying to meditate, but anger is meditating with you.
- Breathe in deeply.
- Breathe out, turn your head to the right with your eyes closed. Notice the anger begin to disappear.
- Breathe in, and turn your head to the left. Feel your anger.
- Face forward and breath in and breathe out.
- Turn your body around. Breathe in and breathe out.
- You are an individual with an individual thought of the Mother who is always in you. She can call on the great fire which will burn away, with simply an out-breath, that which is called anger. Turn forward and have the courage to be who you are.
