Once we recognize the unnecessary pain our anger causes, we are already on the way to undermining its power and its ability to shatter years of good will. We all have parts of ourselves that seem unworkable and cause us grief. If we are habitually angry, then exploring this can become a major part of awakening bodhichitta. Each of us has the ability to free ourselves from the tyranny of the kleshas. No matter what we’ve done, none of us are doomed.
