The tyranny of emotions.


Emotions are reactions that play an essential role in psychological, relational and physical stability. They are temporary affective reactions of more or less strong intensity. They occur in response to a triggering event, and are therefore conditioned in nature. They are the ones that regulate the state of tranquility or tension in our relationships with others, ideas and things.  Emotions act as a source of energy in personal achievement. However, they can also be harmful and devastating, causing incapacity to act, and even psychological disorders. They are then paralyzing and contaminate our relational state, while exerting a strong pressure on the body. On the one hand they stimulate and move forward, on the other they block and make life miserable. It is now obvious that by regulating our emotions, our "ill-being" disappears, whether emotional, behavioral or physical.

We have sacred the emotions. We identified with them. We made something huge out of it, just like sexuality. We have invested far too much in their meanings. We believe that they give substance to a singularity, ours. It is precisely because of this identification that we over-react, because it affects the image we have of ourselves. And it is this image that is constantly injured. It is therefore through an emotional protection mechanism that the ego often reacts disproportionately to preserve the image, to keep it intact and then not be hurt.


To want to control one's emotions is to generate resistance, tension and contradiction; namely: wanting to be what one is not. These reactions are of the order of conditioning, of images and of the fragmentation of the mind. Also there is nothing to control emotionally. You have to understand that… There is nothing to regulate.


It is by understanding how thought, which is a reaction of memory, tries to identify with the images it has created of itself that we will naturally detach ourselves from their conditioning. These representations give rise to the self and the ego. It is these images that are hurt and over-react to external events and stimuli. These are of the order of "I like or I do not like", only.


It is therefore by abandoning the images and the identification with its projections that one can free oneself from the tyranny of the emotions...
