Anger turns into an Opportunity

Hello world!

I have just watched below great advice of Eckhart Tolle on dealing with anger and I am glad to know that even anger could be turned into an opportunity for consciousness development.

You know, when an upsetting incident happened two days ago, I was really confused.

In the past, in such incidents, I used to get angry and then I used to think that I had every right to be angry. Sometimes, I totally owned my anger and even used to nurture it.

Back then, when people and things upset me, I would give them what I thought they deserved.

And when they made me really angry, I would fight back with determination.

And when they made me really really angry, I would burn down what stood as obstacles on my path.

And at the highest level, I would just burn down the whole thing. raw

Sounds bad? Definitely! 

Seems mean? Perhaps! 

Looks ugly? H*ll yeah!

Flash forward and now.

Consciously, now I have really no interest or desire to get angry ever again. But there comes up tiny bit every now and then.

When it comes up, I get all self-conscious and think to myself, “Oops, there it comes again!”.

Then I ask:

Having been tormented by anger two days ago, I intuitively went on a search. First, I didn’t know what I was searching for. Then after watching several videos, I did find the one that answered my prayers. In below video, Ekchart Tolle explains how we can use anger as an opportunity for awareness increase and consciousness development.
