EMOTION:  THE BODY’S REACTION TO YOUR MIND

 

What about emotions?  I get caught up in my emotions more than I do in my mind.

 

Mind, in the way I use the word, is not just thought.  It includes your emotions as well as all unconscious mental-emotional reactive patters.  Emotion arises at the place where mind and body meet.  It is the body’s reaction to your mind – or you might say, a reflection of your mind in the body.  For example, an attack thought or a hostile thought will create a buildup of energy in the body that we call anger.  The body is getting ready to fight.  The thought that you are being threatened, physically or psychologically, causes the body to contract, and this is the physical side of what we call fear.  Research has shown that strong emotions even cause changes in the biochemistry of the body.  These biochemical changes represent the physical or material aspect of the emotion.  Of course, you are not usually conscious of all your thought patterns, and it is often only through watching your emotions that you can bring them into awareness.

 

The more you are identified with your thinking, your likes and dislikes, judgments and interpretations, which is to say the less present you are as the watching consciousness, the stronger the emotional energy charge will be, whether you are aware of it or not.  If you cannot feel your emotions, if you are cut off from them you will eventually experience them on a purely physical level, as a physical problem or symptom.  A great deal has been written about this in recent years, so we don’t need to go into it here.  A strong unconscious emotional pattern may even manifest as an external event that appears to just happen to you.  For example, I have observed that people who carry a lot of anger inside without being aware of it and without expressing it are more likely to be attacked, verbally or even physically, by other angry people, and often for no apparent reason.  They have a strong emanation of anger that certain people pick up subliminally and that triggers their own latent anger.

 

If you have difficulty feeling your emotions, start by focusing attention on the inner energy field of your body.  Feel the body from within.  This will also put you in touch with your emotions.  We will explore this in more detail later.

 

 

 

You say that an emotion is the mind’s reflection in the body.  But sometimes there is a conflict between the two:  the mid says “no” while the emotion says “yes” or the other way around.

 

If you really want to know your mind, the body will always give you a truthful reflection, so look at the emotion, and or rather feel it in your body.  If there is an apparent conflict between them, the thought will be the lie; the emotion will be the truth.  Not the ultimate truth of who you are, but the relative truth of your state of mind at that time.

 

Conflict between surface thoughts and unconscious mental processes is certainly common.  You may not yet be able to bring your unconscious mind activity into awareness as thoughts, but it will always be reflected in the body as an emotion, and of this you can become aware.  To watch an emotion in this way is basically the same as listening to or watching a thought, which I described earlier.  The only difference is that, while a thought is in your head, an emotion has a strong physical component and so is primarily felt in the body.  You can then allow the emotion to be there without being controlled by it.  You no longer are the emotion; you are the watcher, the observing presence.  If you practiced this, all that is unconscious in you will be brought into the light of consciousness.

 

So observing our emotions is as important as observing our thoughts?

 

Yes.  Make it a habit to ask yourself:  What’s going on inside me at this moment?  That question will point you in the right direction.  But don’t analyze, just watch.  Focus your attention within.  Feel the energy of the emotion.  If there is no emotion present, take your attention more deeply into the inner energy field of your body.  It is the doorway into Being.

 

 

 

An emotion usually represents an amplified and energized thought pattern, and because of its often overpowering energetic charge, it is not easy initially to stay present enough to be able to watch it.  It wants to take you over, and it usually succeeds – unless there is enough presence in you.  If you are pulled into unconscious identification with the emotion through lack of presence, which is normal, the emotion temporarily becomes “you”.  Often a vicious circle builds up between your thinking and the emotion:  they feed each other.  The thought pattern creates a magnified reflection of itself in the form of an emotion, and the vibracional frequency of the emotion keeps feeding the original thought pattern.  By dwelling mentally on the situation, event, or person that is the perceived cause of the emotion, the thought feeds energy to the emotion, which in turn energizes the thought pattern, and so on.

 

Basically, all emotions are modifications of one primordial, undifferentiated emotion that has its origin in the loss of awareness of who you are beyond name and form.  Because of its undifferentiated nature, it is hard to find a name that precisely describes this emotion.  “Fear” comes close, but apart from a continuous sense of threat, it also includes deep sense of abandonment and incompleteness.  It may be best to use a term that is as undifferentiated as that basic emotion and simply call it ”pain.”  One of the main tasks of the mind is to fight or remove that emotional pain, which is one of the reasons for its incessant activity, but all it can ever achieve is to cover it up temporarily.  In fact, the harder the mind struggles to get rid of the pain, the greater the pain.  The mind can never find the solution, nor can it afford to allow you to find the solution, because it is itself an intrinsic part of the “problem.”  Imagine a chief of police trying to find an arsonist when the arsonist is the chief of police.  You will not be free of that pain until you cease to derive your sense of self from identification with the mind, which is to say from ego.  The mind is then toppled from its place of power and Being reveals itself as your true nature.
