with Lama Rod Owens
As Audre Lorde has written, there is so much data in our anger. One of the things that we can learn is how to let our anger show us where we have been hurt. We can let this great unveiling happen through the profound practice of radical love. When we embrace this deep wish to be happy, then we can move into the cultivation of our anger, which can place us into a direct relationship with our rage.
While anger is a reaction in the present moment to something that we have an aversion towards, rage is an intense experience that seems old and ever present. Cultivating our anger and rage through love means that we begin the work of holding space for ourselves to experience the anger and rage and the hurt beneath them. We are learning how to witness and experience not react over and over again. When we develop this agency, then the energy of our anger and rage can be channeled into helping others instead of hurting others.
