Subject: More for our discussion on anger, from Raj.


ALL anger is nothing more than an attempt 

To make someone feel guilty

(p97)"Whenever you are angry, you can be sure that you have formed a special relationship which the ego has “blessed,” for anger IS its blessing.

(p9 Remember, we talked about the fact that anger is a result of the frustration of experiencing ongoing fear and guilt. Anger is the means that orphans—those who are not joined with the Holy Spirit, those who are not experiencing any form of relationship with the Father—use to create safety, to create security.

(p99) And the anger doesn’t always come out with an angry voice. It very often comes out with a calm, even cultured voice, speaking with dignity and a sense of education, explaining to you what you’re guilty of and why you shouldn’t be at peace, explaining to you what you owe for your guilt. And if you’re not careful, you’ll believe it.

(p100) If it came out expressed as anger, you would become defensive much more quickly and then in order to be overcome yourself, the anger would have to be skillfully expressed in a way that would cause you to feel threatened significantly enough to cause you to yield, to buckle under and to serve.

(p101) Whenever you are angry, you can be sure that you have formed a special relationship which the ego has “blessed,” for anger IS its blessing. Anger takes many forms, but it cannot long deceive those who will learn that love brings no guilt at all, and what brings guilt cannot be love, and MUST be anger.

(p102) So you see, it’s really important to be willing to look at this straight on, so that you don’t overlook anger in favor of noticing the cultured intelligent way in which a guilt trip is being laid on you and honoring the wondrousness of how intelligence can master a situation, you see, and cause you to believe a lie.

(p103) Whew …

(p104) ALL anger is nothing more than an attempt to make someone feel guilty, and this attempt is the ONLY basis which the ego accepts for special relationships. Guilt is the only need the ego has, and as long as you identify with it, guilt will REMAIN attractive to you.

(p105) That means, that it will remain attractive to you as a tool for you to use in manipulating others. And because it’s attractive to you, it will attract into your experience those circumstances which will cause you to have to cope with a guilt trip being laid upon you.

(p106) What you give you get to keep. What you find attractive is attracted to you. And then because you’re already in a guilty state of mind, you’re not likely to object to the guilt trip that’s laid upon you. You will just find the most effective means you can to not have to pay as much of a penalty. [chuckling] You might go get a good attorney who can get you off, even though you know you’re guilty. You see?

(p107) But that’s not emancipation, that’s not Waking up, that’s not moving beyond the liability to be guilty, into your native innocence."
