Yes, okay I'm with ya there. Anger is most certainly an integral part of our being. I see it like a sword to be drawn, but only on rare occasion, when the situation really demands action as you say.Spiritwind wrote:Sometimes you have to get angry to realize action is needed. Especially if you have recently discovered life isn’t what you were led to believe.
I'm glad you added that part. If the sword needs to be drawn then draw it, and use it decisively, but then re-sheathe it when the moment no longer demands it. Maybe it got lost in translation, but I didn't get that from Light Club, as it ended with "and we're very very pissed off". And that was it, an open ended we're pissed of. Then what? That's what concerned me. What are they going to do with that anger, upon the slow dawning realization that they're not going to "be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars"?Spiritwind wrote: And, yeah, just staying angry is generally no good to anyone, if it doesn’t move one to right action.
Maybe they "burn off all the dross and step UP", which would be great, or maybe, most likely IMO, they just stay angry and bitter at this world because most lack the inner tools to transmute this anger effectively.
Well dear lady, I can report back for sure that I carry around no suppressed rage. But I can offer a little personal anecdote as to where I think you and Spiritwind are coming from: I do know intimately the rage you are talking about. When it started dawning on me in the late '08/early '09 time period how deeply I had been lied to about the world, how utterly and completely I had been fooled, I was fucking pissed! I mean, an outrage so deep I was ready to go down in a blaze of glory making a Custer's last stand against these sacks of shit.Christine wrote: That is why the meme says the Light Club and not the Fight Club... I have never met a man, young or old who does not carry suppressed rage. Could be just me, though my experience tells me otherwise. The message is to tap into the cauldron and burn from the inside, to not be afraid of it nor project it outwardly. Outrage is alchemy and every single human being that has feelings carries outrage at what has been done in our name and by our blind obedience. It is painful to enter into this for it also carries an ocean of tears ... In the end it is purification and a depth of love that has no boundaries.
Fortunately however that phase didn't last for long, as I was compelled by a drive, a calling from somewhere down deep, to begin the process of transmuting that anger by hitting the books. I literally became a wide open empty vessel again, voraciously devouring knowledge wisdom and ideas from every source I could get my hands on, to begin replacing the crap that had occupied me previously. I literally became a new man, born again to steal a Bible term, and that process continues today although in a much more calm and controlled manner.
So truly that anger is gone, it's no longer needed. Although the sword is still there at the ready if needed.
I guess my overall question then is what percentage of the general population has what it takes to do this? In constantly scanning the world around me, I do every now and then see that flash of light indicative of one who has what it takes, but they are far a few in between, even on the forum scene much less the every day world.
Will some make it? Yes of course, as history shows there are always the exceptions throughout the ages, and I would go to hell and back to lend a helping hand to any of these rare gems I may be so lucky to encounter if they were going through that rough patch. But it's very difficult for me to imagine an entire generation not only "seeing" what should piss them off in the first place, but then properly transmuting that anger through productive channels to boot. Both highly unlikely, and thus far I am seeing no faint signs of this beginning either.
I reckon one could point to the Trump/Q Anon rage as an example of especially young people waking up and getting angry, but that's also definitely misguided, and not a productive or healthy channel.
I wholeheartedly agree with every aspect of this.Christine wrote: When a female resurrects her inner masculine and bows down to it, this is a sublimation of the ego and she enters the sublime. And when a male resurrects his sacred feminine to her rightful place and protects Her (Creation) with all his will and might then and only then will we find Unity, the yearning within every soul.
