Attack thoughts are kept as long as a distinction is made between the inner emotional world and the external world. The ego sees a big difference between being the victim and being the attacker. It asks who’s right and who’s wrong; who deserves forgiveness? But the ego itself is the attack thought. Nothing out in the world can alleviate your upset. If you see that victim and victimizer are the same, then you’ll be ready to let attack go. You must look at the nonspecific anger in your mind, get in touch with it and bring it up. It’s not pretty, but Spirit can handle it. Then you want to let it go.

Why do I feel rage and where does it come from? How can I move past it? To see a fragmented perceptual world entails rage because it is a form of vengeance. To see form means understanding has been obscured. You do not know your own best interest. The ego is the grievance producing your current context and rage is bound to come up. If your context involve following, you may see your leader as unfair and feel rage. The leaders’ guidance about tasks is appropriate. It may be strong. It is a witness to what you want in your heart, which is to break through that anger and resistance. You are never upset for the reason you think. Your anger involves a misperception, the ego trying to pin it on a person, a form. This is not its cause. The rage is tied to all of perception. Your companions are here to help you move through it.
