Deepak Chopra's Advice On Controlling Your Anger (VIDEO)

When someone tears you down, how do you react without anger? That's the question Raheem, 22, has for spiritual teacher and author Deepak Chopra on "Help Desk," a new special on OWN.

"I have an anger problem that I want to control before I reach the breaking point," Raheem says in the video.

"Back in my neighborhood, when I do yoga, there’s a lot of people around there that make fun of it and think it’s not a ‘man’ thing to do," he says.

"So I started to get angry and pissed off," Raheem continues. "I want to just relax, and not get in trouble for it."

Chopra has advice for him. "So this is very good that you’re changing, but people around you are stuck in the old ways of violence and false ideas of masculinity," Chopra says. "And they are ridiculing you, and in a way they are challenging your integrity."

"So the first thing you have to realize is that you are transforming, and when you transform, it’s uncomfortable for other people who can’t see where you are going," Chopra tells Raheem.

He explains the challenge is to not react. "You don’t transform them by reacting, you transform them through your personal transformation," Chopra says. "You want to be the change you want to see in them. But you have to be patient."

"Will you try it?" Chopra asks.

"Yes," Raheem says, nodding.

"And I'll come there and I'll help you with this," Chopra says.

Two special half-hour encore episodes of "Help Desk" will air Sunday, September 29 at 12 p.m. ET following "Super Soul Sunday" on OWN.
