I may not be depressed currently, but I sure as heck deal with anger.
Why has my life turned out this way? Why am I crippled as a result of taking drugs? Why are there all the injustices in the world? Not just the psychiatric abuses. I care about all human and civil rights issues, the environment and on and on. I like to blame all sorts of people and entities outside myself for being drugged. And I get angry at the insanity in the world. It’s exhausting and does not lend itself to healing.
I’m not suggesting we shouldn’t be activists. Not at all. I just believe we can work with positive energies to transform injustice. Like Gandhi did for example. And he was one heck of an activist. Our human energies are endlessly creative.
Here we learn a bit about transforming anger, this powerful energy. Towards the end the video gets into some heavy Buddhist concepts. Just let that go if it doesn’t make any sense. One would have to have studied Buddhism to understand it, but the beginning is applicable to everyone. Enjoy. I found it beautiful.
