The Tao of Anger

Posted on: September 5, 2014

Anger is just one of a wide range of emotions, and its level of intensity can be experienced on a wide spectrum.

If anger were a color, say red, we would have bright red on one end and light pink on the other end. So let’s say that bright red represents violent rage and that light pink is peace.

Within this range, there are many shades of anger, including mild irritation, resentment, frustration, and fury. Now, contrary to what most people believe, peace is not the absence of anger.

Neither is peace the absence of sadness, shame, jealousy, fear, or disgust. Peace is the ability to balance the emotions.

And that is the Tao of anger.
