Weekly Focus Point
good or bad?
Emotions can be helpful when they spur us into action... but when we are preoccupied with the type of emotion itself it can become counterproductive.
It is human nature
to create two piles of emotions.
The downfall of attaching labels
...judging your emotions keeps you from understanding our feelings.
When we sit with an emotion we can understand what is causing it.
Emotions always serve a purpose...
understanding why they arise and get a reaction from us keeps us from doing things we may regret.
Suspending judgement of emotions
allows them to run their course and vanish.
Passing judgement prevents the original feeling from running its course.
So the next time you feel an emotion beginning to build, take notice of it immediately. Refrain from putting it into the good or bad pile and remind yourself that the feeling is there to help you understand something important.
