I've always thought I had an ANGER problem,
but after reading "Bonds That Make us Free" by C. Terry Warner,
I have learned that when I handle things wrong, I feel angry as a result.
Negative feelings are a sign that I CHOOSE THE WRONG or ignored a spiritual prompting.
(By choosing the wrong, I mean being rude or impatient or justice-oriented).
When CHOOSE THE RIGHT, We feel Positive Feelings= PEACE and LOVE.
(CTR by handling each moment in the Right or Best Way, or following a prompting)
By choosing the right (being kind, loving, patient), we PREVENT anger.
This is so much easier than trying to calm down or get rid of anger.
If we do choose the wrong, all isn't lost...
the Spirit/Holy Ghost can help us see the RIGHT thing to do NOW.
(Like a Navigator- redirecting our course to get us back on track)
So, we don't have to stay in a negative mood.
We get out by choosing the right or best now.
I drew a diagram of the brain, showing that in each moment,
if we choose the right, our thoughts go on an upper track and the outcome is positive feelings.
If we choose the wrong, our thoughts go on a negative track and we feel negative feelings.
