QUESTION: Anger?

ANSWER:  The Christian Bible, Jesus, a day at the temple (‘. . .cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers . . . ‘).

Once in a while even this Ascended Master couldn’t hold himself back when confronted with horrific hypocrisy gone mad, and blatant manifestations of materialism, consumerism, and abject greed taking up residence in a supposedly ‘sacred space’ — even to the point of physical violence.  Not his best day, no doubt, but this episode lets us know that even the most ‘evolved’ among us have the right to release our so-called ‘negative emotions’ when pushed over the edge by nefarious forces (a little righteous indignation anyone?). . . . .  Important Note:  Apparently the only ‘injuries’ were to peoples’ egos and maybe some furniture, not bodies.   But WOW, did this tiny explosion of emotion over MONEY illicit a powerful reaction from the Controllers of that epoch!  It appears that Jesus could go all over and preach whatever he damn well pleased, but Yahweh forbid that he mess with their truly sacred financial system!  The priests of his time couldn’t allow THAT, now could they?

P.S. — To be clear, money at its core is only a means of exchange between apparently separate beings in the lower dimensions of Illusion, and has no intrinsic value or ‘energy’ outside of what those beings give to it (much less anything that can be labeled ‘positive’ or ‘negative’), especially fiat currencies (paper notes and little round metal discs, neither with anything backing them up except an abstract idea, a mental construct, an agreement). It is the placing of money, or any material thing, ‘above’ truly important things in a person’s or society’s hierarchal list of ‘priorities’, that is the core issue.  Jesus was obviously rebelling against that, and not the peaceful and equitable use of financial systems in general (I feel), which can have a valuable, useful place in evolved societies — IF the right attitudes, checks and balances are firmly in place, of course.

PPS – In other words, the expression of anger in and of itself, no matter what the particular issue, is NOT necessarily a completely ‘non-spiritual’ event.  In rare circumstances, under very specific conditions and with zero real physical harm being done, the conscious and focused and managed ‘venting’ of that emotion is justified, and even called for (versus its repression, which can lead to much worse scenarios).  I mean, if it worked for Jesus . . . . .

  1. Great post, very insightful. I used to believe that “money was the root of all evil,” which made me poor, yet proud. Then I learned that I had the saying wrong–money is not the root of all evil, but the coveting of money is the root of all evil. I agree with you that money is just a tool that can be used mindfully or selfishly.
