Sometimes, the greatest learning experiences comes from such things as a
"mean-spirited mess." We may think we are kind, compassionate, forgiving,
objective, clear-thinking, logical, etc. . .until someone makes us angry.
Then, we often see what lay beneath our own surface - we have a mirror held
up to our faces. Many times we are shocked at ourselves; shocked at what
we see or say to others. And, sometimes, we marvel at our own patience and
Anger may be a negative emotion, but it is a great teacher if it is allowed
to be so. And such a thing is always theosophical.
