A grateful mind is a great mind which eventually attracts great things to itself. Plato
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned. Buddha
Every day we experience a perfectly normal emotion, anger. But for how long do we stay with this feeling? Are we developed through it or not?
Anger is an emotion toward someone or something you feel has deliberately done wrong. Anger can be a good thing. It can give you a way to express negative feelings, for example, or motivate you to find solutions to problems.
But it can also cause problems. It can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you’re at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. (Adapted from the Encyclopedia of Psychology)
In the case where anger motivates us to find solutions or healthy ways to express feelings, then we should be thankful for that feeling. In the case where anger keeps us inactive, angry, unproductive and with tendencies to transmit our anger then we should probably do something. We should assume responsibility and heal our anger.
I feel deep gratitude that I can understand this reality and I can decide on my next step.
Deep gratitude has so many applications.
Everything in our lives is a matter of perspective. The most classic example is the half full or half empty glass, depending how you look at it. Here I will look at the perspective of anger and gratitude.
