"Anger is a strange thing, It wears many faces and one of those faces is depression. ...One of the symptoms of depression is a lack of caring... The other is an abiding sorrow that seems to have no basis, a sadness that doesn't ever seem to get better, a feeling of deep grief without there being an external purpose behind it. That is anger, unexpressed as anger, and its roots lie in the realization that you have to be forgiven. It doesn't matter if you don't know what for. Most people have not a clue. You don't actually have to be forgiven for anything but because you believe you do, that is your awareness. ...You may not even consciously have any connection with that, but underneath in the pot of your soul, there is a belief that somewhere, sometime, you did the unforgivable.
.Now, because it isn't necessary for you to know it, all that is necessary is for you to be aware of that feeling in here in the soul. Now is when you listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit and you ask the Holy Spirit to come in and to intervene in your life and to take from you that which you do not see.
Now it takes many steps. It isn't a single step. Now, the Holy Spirit comes instantly. But most people go through a series. ...Sometimes you are working outwardly very hard at being helped, but inwardly you are not releasing to the Holy Spirit's power the grief, the anger that you are holding onto and so it will reoccur. When it reoccurs, simple ask again. Choose again to have the Holy Spirit come and take it from you.
Don't forget, beloveds, you have had this anger inside of you for thousands and thousands and thousands of years, so it's not something you're going to get rid of in a twinkling but you do get rid of it. You do get rid of it and each time the Holy Spirit is called upon, it becomes more powerful, the ego becomes less powerful, and so it goes until finally, at last you discover you are forgiven. And then the love of God comes flooding in upon you and it becomes your reality. It becomes your reality."
