Prompted by The Daily Post;
Which emotion(s) — joy, envy, rage, pity, or something else — do you find to be the hardest to contain?
All negative emotions are harmful and are the product of the ego. The ego is a monster we have created by believing our thinking mind is our true self. The ego sets itself, you, apart from everybody else. It believes it is better, stronger, more attractive, wealthier, more deserving. When this is challenged, as it will be daily, the ego rises. It will fight to preserve its existence.
All negative emotions have an opposite, e.g. rage – calm, anger – compassion.
There is only one emotion which does not have an opposite – LOVE.
People speak of love/hate relationships, in such a thing there is not true love.
Love is light, hate is darkness. Darkness cannot exist in the presence of light.
Try to make love your guiding emotion.
