ON ANGER - DAVID WHYTE

ANGER is the deepest form of compassion, for another, for the world, for the self, for the body, for a family and for all our ideals, all vulnerable and all, possibly about to be hurt. Stripped of physical imprisonment and violent reaction, anger is the purest form of care, the internal living flame of anger always illuminates what we belong to, what we wish to protect and what we are willing to hazard ourselves for. What we usually call anger is only what is left of its essence when we are overwhelmed by it… when it reaches our body’s incapacity to hold it.
