Anger - Shaykh Khwaja Shamsuddin Azeemi

"Anger is a poison that contaminates the blood. It diminishes the stored up Spiritual Energy within you. You'll never be able to become spiritual unless you overcome anger and resentment."

Shaykh Khwaja Shamsuddin Azeemi
Patriarch of the Sufi Order of Azeemia.

I think so too - the exception would be if you're suddenly confronted with a life and death situation where the adrenalin that comes from anger may really help.

But the overwhelming preponderance of anger isn't like that. It's more the lingering resentment, or anger not over someone in the process of leaping on you with a knife, but over something that happened maybe years ago - and probably over not an assault on your body, but your ego.

And anger is such a "noisy" emotion, so to speak, that I think it works against self knowledge more than grief or even fear. It can cover up a lot that we don't want to look at.

Here I want to share with you following phrases of Rumi ,

"Empty yourself from within -- like a ney -- so that, just as the Prophet kept his lips on one end of the ney and the Almighty's songs began coming out from the other end....."
Well said, until & unless we don't empty our self from anger, lust, attachments, how will we be able to walk on this path!!
