Rage sits at the crossroads of personal transformation. Those of us seeking spiritual enlightenment will inevitably stumble upon rage along the path. Rage is not to be understood as a useless emotion, empty of insight. Rather, rage is fierce clarity and untapped fuel. It is the descendant of traumas, the twin of shame, the burden of denied history, the language of emotional pain, and the wisdom that helps us heal. When we push rage away, we can’t transform it. Embraced with mindful attention and compassion, the energy trapped in rage becomes an intimate and empathic teacher of stability and integrity, greatly enhancing our relationships and our service.
