A Confession: Sometimes Anger Works for Me

“Rise in the strength of Spirit to resist all that is unlike good. God has made man capable of this, and nothing can vitiate the ability and power divinely bestowed on man.”
– Mary Baker Eddy

I’ve now and then shared some of the thoughts that have brought me healing.  Usually these are thoughts of hope and joy, humor and cheery positivity. But sometimes there’s another mental place I go when I need healing – a place that I’ve been weirdly reluctant to share with others. But… maybe it’s time. Here it is: Sometimes I just get completely angry and exasperated with sickness and gloom. Sometimes my inner rabble gets roused and I get this powerful sense of indignation towards anything that would try to foist itself on me that I don’t want foisted on me. Sometimes I feel this powerful surge of revolt against anything that would try to take away my God-given right to wholeness and holiness. I laugh at the gloom, pull it from its fear-built pedestal, and knock it into smithereens. Yeah. Sometimes anger seems to work well for me. So there it is. My secret’s out at last. Thanks for letting me make my confession. I feel so much better now.

Alrighty. Carry on then…

  1. In this case, it sounds like anger is the form the life energy takes to make itself heard effectively and to resist and clear away the stagnation of whatever feels stuck. It seems like a practical system!

  2. Even Jesus got angry. Remember the temple courtyard?

    Anger directed positively can help people move mountains. It’s the anger directed towards ourselves that can wound.

  3. I get very angry with error and tell it off! It really is a coward and is nobody dnd nothing! I tell it
    so, too! Frequently it then disappears!
