Most of the people think that their emotions are reflecting the reality. On some point it’s true, but they’re still mistaken. Our emotions are mirrors of our inner state. So they’re reflecting our inner reality, not the outer. And our inner state also has nothing to do with the outer world, it’s just thoughts and emotions.
But, when you seperate the emotions and reality, and become free of the mind, then that love has to do everything with the outer world.
Are the thoughts and emotions controlling you, or you’re controlling them?
