WHOLISM AND THE NEW AGE  by Diane Brandon

Emotions

Page 4 of 11

Emotions get a lot of bad press.  We tend to reject emotions as undesirable qualities, especially "negative" emotions like pain or anger.  We suppress our emotions; it's not "good" to be "emotional."  Isn't it possible that emotions serve a purpose, perform a function?  To me, emotions are indicators, or signals:  they tell us when something is going well or needs to be worked on.  If we pay attention to our emotions, we can learn and grow.

 

If the different parts of ourselves are working together, then we achieve a wholeness or balance in our lives.  If we suppress or deny parts of ourselves, the energy of the parts disowned does not dissipate; it remains and throws us off balance.
