anger

The emotion which stems from condemnation, from the judgment that someone is not fulfilling the function you allotted her and is attacking you, from the perception that she has sinned and should feel guilty. Anger is expressed as guilt and finally fear of punishment. This fear of outer attack seems to justify further anger (see W-pI.153.2:1-2), and the cycle starts over. Anger results in guilt and fear because it comes from your unconscious attraction to guilt and fear. Behind mild annoyance, anger over specific situations, and anger over certain attributes in particular people, lies intense, total and non-specific fury (see W-pI.21.2-5). "Anger is never justified" (T-30.VI.1:1; see M-17.8:6)). Even the destruction of the body does not justify anger, for the body is not real. Jesus taught this in the crucifixion (see T-6.I.4). Anger obliterates your helpfulness, obscures the peace of God, and is a sure sign that your thinking is guided by the ego. The major lesson of the teacher of God is to learn how to respond without anger to his pupil's egoic thoughts (see M-17.4). See attack thoughts. See T-15.VII.10:3, T-30.VI.1:1, W-pI.192.9:4-5.
