How Love Brings Meaning and Purpose to Our Lives
Updated: Feb 1
Do you ever harbor anger toward others you believe have mistreated you? For many of us, letting go of this energy can allow us to utilize our energy in wise and constructive ways. We can then focus on and become more open to additional possibilities. We can develop a vision and story of ourselves and hit the ball we have been slowly rolling back and forth, straight out of the park— making a home run to live our dreams.
In his book, LIGHTS ALONG THE WAY, Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, M.D. addresses “Kaas” or anger and categorizes it into 3 stages. In the first stage he refers to “anger”, which comes to all of us naturally. The second phase he describes as “rage”, in which people act out in some way. The 3rd stage he refers to as “resentment” or the retention of anger. He addresses ways we can manage the last two stages. When we can work toward overcoming the last 2 stages, we can take accountability for ourselves and embrace love and compassion.
