Yogic Living: Transform Your Anger to Your Purpose

“There is nothing wrong with fire but when it burns your house, it is terrible. When it cooks your meal it is beautiful.”
-Yogi Bhajan 12/20/71

We usually think of anger as one of those ugly “bad” emotions. But did you know that the power of anger is the same power that digests our food and energizes our cells?

Anger is neither good nor bad; it is a form of power, and how it manifests can be either destructive or constructive. Anger comes from the Agni Tattva, the fire element that gives us the strength of commitment, discipline, will-power, and the ability to carry out our intentions. 

Learning to use the power of anger constructively can help us achieve our purpose, fulfill our dreams, and motivate our lives.

“The Agni Tattva can help us to harmonize the pulse of the Third Chakra—to transform anger to commitment, and to heal mind and body so we can express the soul. Ride this fire with purpose, balance, and grace. Burn through your fears and rise to your highest destiny.”
-Aquarian Teacher Training Manual Level 1
