If & when angry. There is a probability of a distortion.

Anger is a bane to human existence. I know we had need of it in prehistoric days.
Everything in balance. Okay we have anger. There must be a reason. It can, and does help
us to correct societal wrongs. When does it get out of hand?
When we cross the line & do evil. When do we know have perpetrated evil? When we take
away the rights of people & or life. In the future this may evolve to treat animals and all life on this planet with respect. Now, currently, anger may be doing "evil" with gay rights or lack thereof. All humans should have equal rights. This is for people on the whole planet.
We have two orientations. One is people for planetary rights and solidarity.
The other is America first, foremost, and even only. The two opinions are very diametrically
We must be careful of anger showing up between these two groups. Then again maybe it is
just part of the process. As long as there is progress.
In the Middle East the Israelis & Muslims in the area have a deep rooted hatred & anger
that is forestalling progress. They have let anger get in the way of reasoning. Somehow they
have to get unstuck! LightSun
In my life, I have found that anger is a sign of something else wrong, so I look around and try to see what the anger is telling me... do I feel someone is behaving in an unfair manner? Has something someone else said made me feel defensive about something I don't fully accept about myself? etc. etc...
Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.
