You have frequently mentioned that emotions are a blessing if properly used. Can you explain, please?
Emotions are primarily (and mistakenly) a state of being for the masses; the way they live, and at times seen as their own identity. Emotions are driven by desire (desire to withdraw from = fear, desire to break through = anger, etc) but in fact, they are a tool that masters judiciously use to accomplish something.
A master’s emotion is not based on unresolved and undisciplined needs and desires, but rather on perception. If perception is coupled with emotion, it creates an attitude.
Attitudes are chosen states of being that a master cultivates in order to express in a certain way (eg. Love, praise, and gratitude).
