A Sample of an Inner Journey
Don't think away your feelings
"When emotions are managed by the heart, they heighten your awareness of the world
around you and add sparkle to life. The result is new intelligence and a new view
-- Doc Childre and Howard Martin
How do you intellectualize your emotions?
Many of us live so much in our heads that we intellectualize our emotions. We analyze,
rationalize and explain them away so quickly that we don't actually experience them.
Learn to honour your emotions at all times by being willing to feel them. Of course,
you may need to exercise some judgment over how and when you express them.
"Learning to be aware of feelings, how they arise and how to use them creatively
so they guide us to happiness, is an essential lifetime skill."
-- Joan Borysenko
