Anger

The loud incessant banging from my upstairs neighbor–coupled with the feelings of being “stuck”–did not make for a great combination earlier tonight.  Perhaps it had something to do with the acupuncture session this afternoon as well.  Sometimes, when you’ haven’t been in touch with your emotions, the Universe would find a way to help you out, and tonight, I really exploded.

Normally, you shouldn’t directly channel your anger to those who are agitating you, but I screamed at my upstairs neighbors at the top of my lungs telling them to “shut up”–hoping they would do so (sometimes this works).  Actually, I wanted to do more than that.  I wanted to rip their hearts out or perform Sub-Zero’s infamous “Spine Rip” Fatality on them, and their parents as well.

I ended up leaving my apartment and screaming at the top of my lungs in my car as I head towards the MCD drive-thru.  I did not drive fast; nor did I drive erratically.  Instead, I felt very energized and alive.  I felt I could do anything.  Getting in touch with your anger, as long as you are self-aware, can do wonders for your productivity as long as you channel the anger the right way.  On the other hand, anger–coupled with a lack of self-awareness–could be quite destructive.

Trying to box in the anger is also quite unproductive, as the anger will linger–causing illnesses, stress, and more anger to be released at a later point in time.

We all possess a dark or shadow side, and all the “negative emotions” that accompany it.  Being spiritual is being aware of this side of us; and to come to terms and embrace it.  If you don’t, it will control you.  Rather, recognizing and embracing it will allow us to rise above it, and to ultimately channel this energy into productive use.  It is an amazing feeling.
