I am currently reading Fred Luskin's book "Forgive for good" where I read that couple of studies have shown that if you often recall or dwell on a past situation that angered you your brain takes it at face value and your nervous system and body reacts as if the situation was occurring and angering you now. Therefore, its better not to do it and forgive, etc. This strikes me as somewhat opposite of what we are doing, Sarno said to concentrate on anger, journaling concentrates on anger, there are anger expression mediation etc, its all about not suppressing anger etc. I realize I am being a bit simplistic here and there is a middle ground and often anger is not even the issue anymore and its more about fear. But still how do we find the balance? Allow anger for a while and then let go, right? How do we know when it its letting go and when it is suppressing?
