Anger is expressed by man and woman some time or the other in their life-time. Anger as a behaviour may be expressed regularly or irregularly. Anger as a behaviour nevertheless happens and is not desired, wished or wanted by man or woman.
Anger is expressed as behaviour by action done in anger. Anger is also expressed as behaviour by words that are said in anger. Superficial understanding of behaviour is knowledge, whereas deep understanding of behaviour is wisdom.
What is wisdom of anger is the question?
Man and woman with wisdom of life understand that every moment in life happens and man and woman do not make any moment in life. They also understand that what is within the moment is manifested by life and not by them.
Man and woman with wisdom of life understand that what is within the moment cannot be other than what is in the moment.
Man and woman with wisdom of life further understand that they will come to know what to do in the moment if they are meant to know. Man and woman with wisdom also understand that mind with knowledge merely believes that they do what they are meant to do, while it is life that makes the doing, albeit illusory, happen.
Man and woman with wisdom are grateful to life for the moment because they understand that every moment in life is gifted to them and that they do not make any moment in life.
Man and woman with wisdom are also grateful for what is gifted within any moment and do not expect anything other than what is in the moment. They flow with life every moment as life unfolds every moment.
Similarly, man and woman with wisdom of life understand that what is said in the moment cannot be other than what is said in the moment and that they will say what they are meant to say.
Man and woman with wisdom also understand that mind with knowledge merely believes that they say, while it is life that makes the saying, albeit illusory, and not man or woman.
Man and woman with wisdom are also grateful for what is said, albeit illusory, by life within any moment and do not expect life to say anything other than what is said through them in the moment.
The wise respond to superficial understanding of behaviour which is anger with deep understanding of behaviour of anger, which is love and compassion. This is because the enlightened understand that what is meant to happen will happen and what is meant to be said in life will be said, albeit illusory, and no force on earth can stop it.

Whatever behaviour manifests in every community and in every person in the community is manifested by life alone, albeit illusory. It is not manifested by man. This deep understanding of those with wisdom, gifted both here and elsewhere, is that what is meant to happen will happen and nothing can prevent it from happening. Thus, those with superficial understanding of behaviour may commend an action as creative or condemn it as destructive. Creative or destructive actions do exist but not as actualities – they are not real as they appear to the mind. They are neither causes nor effects; they are the play of light and sound. Understanding this is enlightenment.
