Thank you for the link. That anger is very active in the upper torso, head, and arms correlates with my felt experience. When I used to fly into rages, I would always have the strong urge to punch inanimate objects and often would do so.
hopefully using a punching ball?
Sure , redirecting the energy by some sort of exercise avoids negative processing of anger.
But- as you said - 'used to '- I assume that your experience led to better insights how to handle anger ,e.g. - or better i.e.- practising right effort. In consequence the attention to the breath , which corresponds to emotion too, supports to calm body and mind (which- B.T.W.- we all know is a major mean for meditation).
I ' jumped' to the first Jhana because of the clear relation of the simile with the experience of joy involving the whole body.
But your reference to anger and its urge offers another and very important aspect : to talk about the conditioning , i.e. the ..phassa- vedana - tanha - upadana..connection of Dependent Origination. Looking forward to your comment.
