The Wilderness of Anger

Why does anger cause us so much misery? As long as we feed it, anger insidiously undermines our spiritual work. Mindful and aware, we learn to refrain from feeding that angry dog and we loosen its foothold within the mind. By the power of loving-kindness and compassion, we disarm anger’s toxicity and restore peace. These are the supreme medicines that will guide us through the wilderness of anger.
