Another thought on this is that strong feelings of anger or
inadequacy can be cyclic. Seeing the rhythms of when we feel good or
bad can indicate a source. I think the source is many times not what
we think it is. The mind has been shown to present the wrong cause
when the real cause is uncomfortable to the self image.
Patanjali mentions "covered ignorance" as ignorance that hides
another type of ignorance.
