Emotions are Part of You

Book coverIs anger part of you or something separate? You have to make a greater connection with the anger and yourself. Even just sitting with it is not enough. It could still be like a bad marriage where there is no relationship. Emotions are part of you, your limbs. If you don’t have energy or emotion, there is no movement, no way to put things into effect. You have to regard emotions as part of you.

From “A Workshop on Psychotherapy” in The Sanity We Are Born With: A Buddhist Approach to Psychology, page 178.
