I wish to write on the subject of anger and what it is doing to humanity in general. As you can see it is becoming very destructive in its expression. Why is this happening? What can we do to lessen it or reduce it?
The night after a particular high school shooting (in Littleton, Denver, Colorado USA, April 1999) where a number of young people died and passed away from the earth plane, I took my disciple and blended his consciousness with the main person responsible for what happened. I might say that he found the experience very unpleasant, indeed. He felt and thought what the young men were feeling and thinking at the time of the killings. After coming back from the astral plane into his physical body and waking up, he felt very sick and it took him some time to come to grips with what he experienced while out of the body. As his teacher, I asked him what his thoughts were now that he knew what went on in the minds of the killers. He had just one answer: “Anger!” – anger to an almost unbelievable level.
Where does this anger come from that a lot of people around the world are experiencing? Why is it so destructive? For a start, a lot of anger that people feel does not come from this incarnation at all. It comes from many past lives – past lives where things have gone wrong and anger is felt but not dealt with. After all, anger is a negative energy, and energy cannot be destroyed; it can only be transmuted, the best way of all being into Love. So there are millions of people living on the earth plane at this time who have vast amounts of anger from past lives that has not been dealt with and transmuted. It only takes something small to trigger this past-life negative energy, and rage is the result.
For instance someone may be driving along the road quite happily, feeling not too bad, except perhaps a little stressed out. Another driver who is having a rather difficult day cuts in front of our driver causing him to brake hard, or maybe even clip his car. This minor happening could easily cause what you call road rage in a driver who hadn’t dealt with his anger in past lives. The road rage that a driver displays is only stored up negative energy that has suddenly found an outlet. Road rage and other negative outbursts – or temper – will continue to be displayed in a person until he has dealt with all his negative energy, whether it is from past incarnations, the present life, or both.
