      Der er intet galt i at føle vrede. Det er helt okay. Slap af. Din vrede gør dig ikke til et dårligere menneske. Den gør dig ikke mindre spirituel eller kærlig. Faktisk giver vreden dig en ekstra dimension, en dimension, der er elskelig.
      There is nothing wrong with feeling anger. It's quite alright. Relax. Your anger doesn't make you a worse human. It doesn't make you less spiritual or loving. In fact, the anger gives you an extra dimension, a lovable one.
