I know that my emotions have become much more even since starting the program, especially in the last while, while starting to meditate, and understand more of the psychological and philosophical underpinning of life.
Meditation is different than visualizations, but similar results. Visualization ties in the concept of bringing in our memories of how it was to a meditation state of mind. Both are interesting. These are both different to the Presence Process of Michael Brown, but also similar. Through these processes, we come to recognise much stuff, much of how it was, and was not.
Becky says that the emotions follow our changed beliefs, which I tend to agree with but why? Are Emotions just an automatic response if our security, attachments, or fear are impinged on? If that is case, what about joy, and all those positive emotions. It will than be expected that our negative emotions can be explained away, changed by mindfulness, paying attention to our attention, and directing our attention.
Ya, emotions change. As we progress in our journey to find our authentic self, from that which we assumed was us, the collective egos of those around us, modified by us, and never really owned.
We discover we have issues: the organism is not adapting to it's environment: or rather, the environment is changing faster than we can adapt. Now what, get fat and die off early, or slow down and look at the situation. Stop the world: I want to get off. Or as Katie says, Broken people get recycled. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4E4-9yKTv_I
