ANGER as a response to Trespass
Anger is often a response to the feeling of an "unjust trespass" which can occur in any area of life:
The other has overstepped a boundary and this produces an emotional response within us.
For example, we may become angry if:
- Somebody steals our property.
- Somebody manipulates or tyrannizes us on the emotional or mental level.
ANGER as a response to Frustrated DESIRE
Another form of anger is when our appointments for our desires are not met or we get an appointment with something that we are averse to! Then we may express our disappointment as anger.
- We are hoping to get our happiness from objects, people, events, and things.
- We place great emphasis on the outcomes of these expectations because we have not realized that we are happiness personified.
- Then we get neurotically attached to our selfish and egotistical desires and aversions.
The mature personality has a balanced interest in themselves and others.
ANGER AS A RESPONSE TO EVENTS IN THE PAST
We can be left with unresolved anger that is directly linked to past events.
Although there is nothing we can do about the actual past events, we can resolve the anger by some form of therapy - either self-help or professional.
ANGER AS A SYMPTOM OF A BLOCKED HEART CENTER
If the heart center is blocked and the individual has difficulty being loving, then the heart center needs healing so that the individual can become loving and set love as their center. Most anti-social behaviour, personality disorder, and selfish egotism is a product of a damaged or blocked heart center.
