Matías reflects on how people often hide their negative emotions, such as anger, behind a smile, something he admits to do himself. “I AM”, his interlocutor, suggests that this is done to maintain social order and avoid erratic behaviors that may disrupt community peace. It is mentioned how anger, an “energetic explosion,” needs to be regulated to maintain balance in society. The origins of words related to anger and sin are explored, highlighting how culturally, error and strong emotions have been punished and repressed in the name of peaceful coexistence. “I AM” suggests that anger, seen as a sacred fire and a manifestation of power, is repressed when control over it is lost, leading to powerlessness and irascible outbursts. The key to managing these powerful emotions lies in finding a balance, allowing them to flow with harmony and love, recognizing the sacred and creative power of our life energy.
“The key is to allow those energetic explosions to flow with harmony and love, recognizing the sacred and creative power of our life energy.”
Emotion Acceptance Meditation: Set aside time to reflect on your emotions, especially those you tend to repress, like anger or rage. Allow yourself to feel these emotions without judgment. Acknowledge that they are a valid part of you and serve a purpose. Practice accepting them and releasing any negative judgments associated with them.
Sacred Fire Meditation: Visualize a sacred fire within you. This fire represents your life energy, passion, and power. Reflect on how you can channel this energy positively in your daily life. How can you turn anger or frustration into a creative and transformative force?
