Anger_04During my recent workshop series in Wisconsin, I described the clinical trajectory of anger management as follows: “It’s a shift from saying “No!” to reality to saying “Yes” to reality.”

Put differently, it’s a shift from taking everything personally to realizing that nothing is personal.

Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Anthroposophy, once said: “How essential – oh, how essential it is to outgrow everything personal.”

Indeed, if we are to transcend our paranoid ways of being, we have to appreciate that all is one and one is all.

How can Oneness be personal?!
