Osho quotes on Anger
Anger is such an emotion which can make you go crazy. It can make you become violent and also create problems for your surroundings. When you are angry, you will certainly take out this anger on somebody or on some objects and at the end it is you who regret the most. This is why you must watch your anger otherwise it can cause more harm in future.
It is not something that you can control because once it is there, it is there. You can never control it but yes, you can dissolve it. In order to do so, you will have to be regular in increasing your level of Awareness.

Quotes on Anger
~ Put your energies into creativity. Forget about anger as a problem, ignore it. Channelise your energy towards more creativity. Pour yourself into something that you love. Rather than making anger your problem, let creativity be your object of meditation. Shift from anger to creativity and immediately you will see a great change arising in you. And tomorrow the same things will not feel like excuses for being angry because now energy is moving, is channelised, is being sublimated, is enjoying itself, its dance. Who cares about small things?
~ The way to become aware "I am not the body, I am not the mind" is what meditation is all about. Watch, watch your body walking, sitting, lying down, and you will be able to see that you are the watcher, not the body. Watch your mind in anger, in hatred, in love, in greed, in misery, in joy, and you will become aware one day that you are not these things that happen in the mind; you are the watcher. Slowly slowly the watcher becomes crystallized. That is the birth of the soul. That day you are really born, that day your real life begins. From that moment god is a reality for you, and the only reality.
~ In anger the mind is focussed entirely on one point. That is why there is so much power in anger. Whenever you are in anger, remember yourself. In that very remembering the focus changes, the gestalt changes. You become more and more centred. Anger remains there just on the periphery of your being, but you know now that it is separate from you. You are not angry, you are only a witness to it. Now it is up to you to choose to be angry or not to be angry. You are no more identified; hence the freedom to choose.
~ That's what meditation is all about: creating an integrated consciousness so that you can watch everything undisturbed, unprejudiced, without any a priori conclusions, without being for or against from the very beginning just watching it silently without any interpretation, just looking at anger, at jealousy at possessiveness, at sexuality, everything that disturbs your peace - and there are hundreds of things. You have to use the same method - that of detached observation - and you have to go to the very root of everything unafraid. There is no need to be afraid and there is no need to be in a hurry; it needs patient observation.
Today it may seem that your anger is very strong, how can meditation break it? But it breaks - it has always broken. Rock is very strong and meditation is very delicate, but this is the mystery of life - the continuity of the delicate can break the strongest and the hardest.— Osho
If you want to observe anger in its entirety, you will have to observe it alone, in the privacy of your room. Then alone can you see it in its fullness, for then there are no limitations. This is why I advise the pillow meditation to certain people, so that they can observe their anger fully.— Osho
It is only through meditation that slowly slowly more consciousness is created within you, more light is created; more watchfulness, witnessing, happens. And that is the miracle of awareness: if you become aware of anger you become a master of anger. Then it is up to you whether to be angry or not. You are absolutely free to be this way or that way.— Osho
