A trick about emotions

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?

    This is a very true, accurate and practical observation.

    For example, I used to wake up in the morning with a sense of nervousness and without fail got irritated about it. Why was I nervous, there was no reason and really – I shouldn’t be anxious to begin with. But one day I woke up and just noticed the energy of the emotion without calling it something – and it turned out to be a beautiful sense of aliveness. See, this is how we are fooling ourselves…

    However, our emotions are a response of the outer state too – they are movements of energy brought about by something that is happening in the environment. It is important to know that there are primary emotions – like fear, anger, joy, love, kindness or even compassion, – that help us to relate to each other. In that sense, emotions are reflecting the reality – but the moment we interpret and create so called secondary emotions – like impatience, boredom, jealousy, envy etc – then we are creating an illusion.

    It is really a great subject. Thank you for bringing it up.
