Emotions: Whose Responsibility Are They?

Interesting that this just came across my e-mail after a recent discussion with my niece about “panic attacks.” I have embraced the premise of this scientist’s talk and they have changed my life.

In many ways it is very Buddhist: Emotions are the barometer of who you are and where you are in your experience of life. Having emotions is not bad, something to be controlled. Emotions may be difficult to face, but they are not bad!

Being able to sit with them and thank them and ask them what lessons they have brought can change your life. The deep message here is that emotions are not built-in. They are something you build for yourself by experience, reaction, prediction, and guessing!
