    Today I almost had to burst out in anger and kick a guy’s a**.

    If you are in pain, then there is something, you are attached with. So detached from it. Because “If there is no attachment, then there is no grief”.

    It is evident from the above that there are two basic psychological dimensions
    to emotions: excitement-calm and pleasant-unpleasant. The pleasant-unpleasant
    dimension of emotions is identified as hedonic tone. The concept of hedonism,
    as presented by the philosopher Aristotle, was a motivational concept. Hedonism is the point of view that we…[Read more]

    Practice gratitude. Remember that someone, somewhere, is praying for things that you take for granted.

    Go back over that which has caused you to be angry. Some believe it’s best to let it go, think of something else. If you have a bad heart, yes. Maybe, try to think of a peaceful grove with a quiet pond and a little frog and a little turtle swim near the surface at opposite ends of the shore. A bird softly calls from a tree nearby. If your heart i…[Read more]

    “What happened to you after you stopped drinking alcohol?”
    Keep in mind I am a recovering alcoholic. At my “bottom” I was drinking about 1/2 a fifth of liquor a day.
    After abstaining for a day, not much of anything happened. After a couple days abstaining, I spent 3–5 days detoxing which included mild tremors, sweating profusely, and trouble s…[Read more]

    When I wake up, it doesn’t hurt. I’ve been lying flat on it. I think to myself, “it won’t hurt today.”
    Then I lean up and try to get out of bed and I feel a sharp pain. It’s going to hurt. And it’s going to hurt all day.

    • The past is responsible for most of our anger…not the past itself, but us clinging to the past.
    • The rest of the anger is caused by worrying about the future.

    It’s so easy to fall in love, isn’t it? Especially when that person isn’t you. You would walk over spitting hot coals and bend over backwards to keep your partner happy and be loved.

    There is always emotion.

    This question is a desire. It reflects regret, self reflection, and a need to be better.

    And as logical and Vulcan we think our cool thinking selves to be, we’re always happy to be right, and offended when we’re wrong.

    Debates tend to be emotional. That’s because both sides are wanting to be right and not wanting to be…[Read more]
