The Emotional Body is where we experience our capacity to feel emotion. It is where our humanity and our divinity can embrace most intimately. It is an alchemical cauldron in which all that remains unconscious, separate, and suffering can be experienced, understood and liberated. One of the most common reasons for unhappiness is that a healthy relationship with all of our emotional experience has not yet been developed. When emotions are judged, feared, rejected, or overly identified with – suffering is experienced. When we learn how to directly experience emotions, and frozen emotions, without reactivity there is no suffering even though very painful emotions may be present. When we find that in us which can meet emotional pain without reaction or resistance, we have found true presence and understanding.
