Does anger mean you’re meditating wrong?

Meditation is about equanimity. Noticing things without reacting to them.

Does that mean it's morally wrong to be reactive? Should you try hard not to get angry with people? Is it a sign of progress in meditation when you are less angry?

No, no, no.

Some people will tell you those are true. If you're looking to get rid of your anger and become totally imperturbable, you should go listen to what they have to say. (I guess you should, anyway. Personally, I doubt it will work. But, please try it and let me know what you discover.)

The type of equanimity I'm interested in is the one where you're OK with whatever happens. That means being OK with being reactive. Being OK with being angry. Being OK with making little progress in meditation.

That's how I practice: whatever comes up, I notice it and let it come and go on its own.

Often, that's confusing, especially when I'm REALLY HAPPY to see something bad go away.

Unfortunately, the things that disappear always come back.

If you're not meditating, you should start doing it. (You might find No Problem useful)
