Until you get there

18 March 2021

Anger is a natural property of the mind. Without anger, we can’t achieve purification, that is, unless we’re angry at all the wicked thoughts which the devil sows within us. If you want to reach natural anger (that is anger which is directed at the devil and the passions), cut off your will until the state of your mind becomes as it was when God created it.
