Do you ever feel frustrated by the news on television? Do you get angry when you hear about the countless injustices in the world? Are you upset by the tragedies that fill our newspapers? These reactions are considered normal in our society but what difference do they really make to the rest of the world? If you feel strongly about a situation, do something about it. Participate in the process of change. But giving vent to anger and frustration only reinforces our ingrained sense of powerlessness. Let us rather use our energy to make a positive contribution and, if we cannot make a difference in a particular situation, let us learn to remain calm and renounce our lifelong habits of fear and anger.
