On the "Lifewriting" discussion group, someone said that I thought Fear and Anger are the same thing. No, I don't . My comment is that "anger is a mask over fear." In other words, anger is, in a manner of speaking, a different vibration of the same energy. Often, it is more useful (non-paralytic). It doesn't freeze you, and alows action. On the other hand, it can obscure what is really going on. Next time you're dealing with an angry person, ask yourself "what might they be afraid of?" You will probably find that question leading you to a deeper, better, understanding.
