Gurudev, when longing becomes intense sometimes, it ends up with the feeling of anger or frustration. How to deal with it?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Longing needs to be internalized, you need to go deep into meditation. Or give a creative form to it, write some poems or articles. Writing will help.
You know, a lot of great works have come out of longing, whether it is painting, music, drama, literature, all these have come out of deep yearning.

So give your longing a creative direction; or internalize it, go deep in meditation.
