One of the really stupid myths about enlightenment is that for the sage, there is no longer anger or fear or any of the so-called negative emotions. In the sage any emotion might arise. But the sage is not involved in the ego sense.. in other words, he is not engaged in shoulds or could have etc. at all.
Rather, he simply watches whatever emotion the organism produces from whatever stimulus might arrive, and sees them all simply come and go, without any egoic involvement.
When this is deeply understood, then this myth is seen as really silly and it is no longer given any credibility. This is freedom!
