    Thank you Somik for the opportunity to share.

    My anger most frequently arises when events do not occur exactly as I desire.  Frequently I am not aware of my desire until after the anger arises.  Reducing or eliminating desire has been helpful.

    Portals to the less centered parts of myself are often noticed after anger arises when another demonstrates negative characteristics of mine of which I am unaware. Awareness continues to be the key for me.  Warm and kind regards to everyone.
