Anger is most often an enemy of thought. It can be used deliberately to engender thought in others, like from a pulpit or a lecturn. But it is more often not ‘used’ in any deliberate way, or rather, in any well thought out way.
If you are angry today, unclench your fist, your emotions, your mind, just for a minute. You won’t have to give up your right to be angry a moment later,you can go back to it if you want. You aren’t relinquishing your right to be have anger as an avenue and as a weapon. You can use it if you want, right now or later. But if you practice letting go of it, you might find you don’t need it, much like an addict realizes at some defining moment they can get along with out the cigarette or drink. Maybe you can too. Try it, you have nothing to lose but your anger.
