The Practice is not to focus outside what we experience inside, if anger arises, we look towards the anger, we do not focus the anger where it wants to be focused, we turn inwards and focus on it we study it, dissect it, and watch as it tries to trick us into thinking it is right, we focus on, in and of itself, its arising its passing away, and how it changes,
If we follow the path we are told we want to take (what we want to do) and not the path that we should take (in accordance with Dhamma) we are at odds with how things are we cling to things which are what we like when they are no good for us, we run from things we do not like when they are good for us, playing peek-a-boo with the world. When someone says something which disagrees with what we think is the case we tell them they are wrong, we take a side for what we think is right, seldom heedful of what they are saying and reading what we want or think they are saying, paying no attention to what is actually said.
This is like when we get angry it doesn’t matter that it isn’t something worthy of anger, or something personal it only matters that it is something wrong.
Put aside what you want to do or think, look within and see, investigate, and overcome the self attachments then look outside, what is and what you thought may just be two different things.
At the end of the day I may be right, I may be wrong, but I share this hoping I am one, the other, both, or neither.
