The way we fill a vessel up is drop by drop. All good things take time & time needs patience.

2

Anger is not to be suppressed or repressed, but to be expressed productively through practices that help transform anger into energy.
One way to do this, is to try and actually feel the anger in the body. When you do this, you realise that anger is just pure energy in the body, that we've just attached that energy to the word and story that lead us to be angry.

And once we realise that it's just energy that we feel, we can make a conscious choice to just channel that energy.

What we need to balance, is the clarity of what we actually can understand with the humility of realizing that there's a lot that we don't yet understand.
