Each man inhabits a self-created world. The world of the depressed man is grey and pointless; the world of the angry man is loaded with tripwires and triggers. None of these worlds is permanent. They’re dream states.

Anger cannot be managed; it helps no one to list his triggers. Anger is an inside job. Life is the trigger. What then? Anger must be traced to its source. Do that and see that anger is not a problem but the symptom of a problem. It is the love-puckered face-freezing fruit of a thought habit. That’s what needs to be dismantled. It’s not easy. We love our habits. Occasionally, we break a habit, but it is more frequently the case that a habit breaks us.
The fearful man is not afraid of this or that. He is afraid of Life. Talk no more of triggers. Fear is the issue, not the objects fear creates to be afraid of.
