Angry at Someone?

“To be angry at people means that one considers their acts to be important. It is imperative to cease to feel that way. The acts of humans cannot be important enough to offset our unchangeable encounter with infinity.” – Carlos Castaneda

Okay, I know these are radical statements, especially for those who suffer unspeakable injustices. Yet, Castaneda’s point warrants consideration in this political climate of hatred and fear, and in our personal lives where certain people drive us mad.

Even if you don’t agree with Castaneda, no one in their right mind can deny…

  • it is difficult to take ourselves so seriously when we consider how temporary it all is
  • inevitable death puts everything in perspective
  • arguing with what is is useless

Save your energy. Be a change agent not a victim.

  1. This is excellent advice! There is a lot of anger out there right now. Perhaps the seven minute rule would help. I may even implement a 1 minute rule in order to keep this from getting into my heart and soul and start focusing on doing something productive and positive instead. Thank you for posting this Pam!

  2. Thank you Gwynne! We can remind each other!
