Anger & Answers

Standard

Sometimes it’s okay to be angry – at injustice, hunger, poverty and discrimination.   These are universal struggles that require the entire global community to focus on seeking answers, rather than assessing blame.

It starts with me.  Today, I will join the community and focus my energies on solutions.

“It is wise to direct your anger towards problems – not people; to focus your energies on answers – not excuses.”
William Arthur Ward

  1. Thank you for your thought-provoking article. One thing I’ve realised is that whatever we focus on, we produce – whether positive or negative. If we focus on the badness, misery and suffering in the world, we feed it with our thought energy. Ann Frank said: “I don’t think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.” I especially like the words of Horatio Bonar: “Think truly, and thy thoughts shall the world’s famine feed.”
    A few months ago, I wrote in my journal: “Suffering and cruelty have affected me deeply throughout my life, but I have learned to turn the situation around. It doesn’t mean that I don’t see the world’s pain, just that I choose not to focus upon it. For, according to the Law of Attraction, we get more of what we focus on.” I always try to remember this now.

    • Well said!!! I agree wholehearted!! What we think and focus on becomes written on our face. Focusing on darkness paralyzes our soul. Solutions focus on good and noble results – not on the current state! Thank you Lizzie, for sharing your wisdom.

  2. There is this that goes something like this: “Be angry and sin not.” My mom always said: “Don’t go to sleep angry”. We need to examine our anger to be sure it is just and then do all in our power to make change.

    • I agree!! I have often thought of that seemingly contradictory sentence – “Be angry and sin not.” Anger is a complex subject! We all feel it, but really don’t understand the emotion, especially within the context of generating a positive outcome. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.
