A Quote by Byron Katie on love, awakening, anger, happiness, action, peace, freedom, and activism

I've heard people say that they cling to their painful thoughts because they're afraid that without them they wouldn't be activists for peace. “If I feel peaceful,” they say, “why would I bother taking action at all?”
My answer is “Because that's what love does.”  To think that we need sadness or outrage to motivate us to do what's right is insane. As if the clearer and happier you get, the less kind you become. As if when someone finds freedom, she just sits around all day wiith drool running down her chin.

My experience is the opposite.

Love is action.

A Quote by Osho Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh on moment, fighting, fuss, violence, ambition, conflict, hatred, struggle, anger, train, politics, and gone

One moment it was there, another moment it is gone. One moment we are here, and another moment we have gone. And for this simple moment, how much fuss we make! How much violence, ambition, struggle, conflict, anger, hatred, just for this small moment! Just waiting for the train in a waiting room on a station, and creating so much fuss: fighting, hurting each other, trying to possess, trying to boss, trying to dominate - all that politics. And then the train comes and you are gone forever.

Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

A Quote by Margery Allingham on anger, beware, hindrance, alcohol, devil, and perception

Beware of anger.  It is the most difficult to remove of all the
hindrances.  But it is the alcohol of the body, you know, and the
devil of it is that it deadens the perceptions.

Margery Allingham (1904 - 1966)

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on anger


Anger has become one of the trendiest emotions of all.  In moderation it can be a righteous force for constructive change.  But its hackneyed omnipresence means the vast majority of its outbreaks are trivial.  The paucity of colorful obscenities is aggravated by an abundance of frivolous fury.

A Quote by Dalai Lama on religion, dalai lama, dali lama, criticism, anger, and purpose

The very purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticise others. Rather, we must criticise ourselves. How much am I doing about my anger? About my attachment, about my hatred, about my pride, my jealousy? These are the things which we must check in daily life.

Irritation, frustration, annoyance, anger, rage and eventually violence are simply a function of not getting what I want. (On a sliding scale of magnitude of intensity)
