Wisdom Energy of Emotions

Even though the emotions are often considered to be negative, their true nature is wisdom.

What are the problems with emotions such as anger, jealousy, pride, desire etc.? First of all, they can be painful. Second, they distort our understanding of what we see by creating a base for prejudices. Third, having energy potential, they affect our actions either pushing us to act or blocking our impulses beyond our will.

During this course we are going to explore if emotions are really problematic or they are important aspects of our natural inborn mechanisms of self-regulation and self-sustenance. We’ll explore what emotions really tell us, how they guide and protect us, why these mechanisms sometimes malfunction, and what we can do in order to fix them.



愤怒、嫉妒、骄傲、欲望等情绪有什么问题? 首先,它们可能很痛苦。 其次,它们通过建立偏见基础来扭曲我们对所见事物的理解。 第三,它们具有能量潜力,会影响我们的行动,要么推动我们采取行动,要么阻止我们超出意志的冲动。

在本课程中,我们将探讨情绪是否真的有问题,或者它们是我们天生的自我调节和自我维持机制的重要方面。 我们将探索情绪真正告诉我们的是什么,它们如何引导和保护我们,为什么这些机制有时会失灵,以及我们可以做些什么来修复它们。
