Buddha say....4

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal
with the intent of throwing it at someone else;
you are the one getting burned.

--Buddha

I am not so sure about the anger you know..
I had written about this some time back

sometimes it feels good to show your anger, but then there are times when anger makes you react in a way which you end up regretting

Repression can lead to murder.
Cursing could be healthy.
It depends on the situation.

I believe he means that to not have anger at all and that is the point: to not have anger in the first place. It is possible.

Now, most of us do have anger at some time or another and how we deal with it is another thing altogether.

I just killed the Buddha!

Did you read Siegfried link on killing the Buddha? Try it, interesting.

jon be me said...

What I get from Siegfried's killing the Buddha post is..."BE YOURSELF". Plain and simple, just "be yourself"....

Easier said than done, of course and I believe this is one of the root causes of so much grief in the states. Most Americans have this need to "live up to something" or to be "accepted by others" etc...which will never be accomplished in the long run.
