Sweet Anger


The holy Zohar in this week's Parsha Tzav (30b) discusses the verse in Psalms (7) ViAi-l (and Gd) zoa-aim (vents anger) bichul (every) yoam (day), main problem being that this appellation of God connotes kindness not appropriate for anger. Rabbi Shimon reveals that Ai-l is actually a reference to the Divine "Niheeroo (shining) dichuchmusuh (of wisdom)" which lashes out everyday to banish all types of lower harsh judgements from prevailing.

We must learn to emulate this Divine practice, and call up on our mental acumen to be strong and commanding and allow us to deal with everything from their vantage of grace and tranquillity and not to give way Gd forbid to disgruntled behavior.

Rabbainu in Sichos Huran (Words of Rabbi Nachman 74) revealed another instance when one must invoke an outbreak of anger and irritation - and that is to provoke and instigate oneself to pray with fervor and passion. See there.
