When you feel anger rising up from the pit of your stomach in a response to a situation – not reacting to this explosive energy can be challenging for even the most Zen of us. However, suppressing and ignoring it will only put a lid on this powerful emotion and lay the foundations for a bigger eruption later on.

So how can we deal with anger and pessimism in a healthy way so it transforms into positive energy?

In this insightful 13-minute video, the legendary Eckhart Tolle answers this question by revealing how we can become aware of what’s fueling our anger, how to distinguish it as being separate from who we are, and how to use it to harness our spiritual practice.

We love this video because it put a different spin on anger, and taught us how we can use it to our advantage. What are your responses to it?
