Re: Charles” 6) When you feel anger or other negative qualities, what should you do?(a) Recite the hekau and visualize its energy and the deity associated with it destroying the negativity within you. Example Om Amun Ra Ptah.
In addition to S. Maa’s post, each of the Shedy disciplines provide tools to overcome egoistic feelings and actions…including going for a walk in nature (neteru), breathing, chanting, Tjef Neteru, reflections, engaging in righteous actions, even ones such as doing practical righteous actions (laundry, cleaning, etc), reading a proverb, or recalling at teaching, reflecting on the teachings, deep breathing, meditation…it depends on the degree of egoism being experienced, the environment one is in (work versus home versus social gathering, etc), and one’s prior efforts in this area, how far one has already advanced.
In general if the mind is in a dull state, it would engage in actions to shift it to a more lucid state, where the teachings can be effective and deeper reflections and meditation can be practiced.
