Anger results from the possession of an ordinarily calm mind by a thought or belief. These thoughts and beliefs are trespassers. The loss of temper is our consciousness jumping out a vehicle that we are driving before it has stopped. The vehicle is the instrument that is the body. We may not be in control but we still retain responsibility for where we go and what damage we do. When anger takes control of the perspective the whole mind is controlled by anger. The body is a vehicle that can create or destroy. We can be replaced in any moment by our anger.
