What is Trichotomy? The Power of Balance / Part 11

Remaining with our central segment of the human psyche - our Intelligence (soul), we will explore one of its components - our emotions. We will take a glance at healthy emotions as well as the unhealthy long-term emotions.

Long-term emotions can have an unwanted negative physiological effects on individuals holding on to them for an excessive amount of time.

‘Having become desensitize
to everyday pleasures,
we escalate our demands
to include the extremes.’

This even includes pleasure. Having become desensitize to everyday pleasures we escalate our demands to include the extremes.
1“We are tempted to seek pleasure in other ways, by taking drugs, or over-indulging in pleasurable activities. Extremely hedonistic [pursuing extreme pleasures] lifestyles may be caused by compulsive behaviour leading to an endless craving for pleasurable sensations, or subtle damage to the underlying brain circuitry”

We will examine the issue of over indulgent a little later, but for now lets look at the purpose of emotions.Put simply; emotions are to 'ready yourself’ for action directly or indirectly. A perceived event is experienced consciously or subconsciously and action is taken. You can be the participant of the said action or your body signals alert others to take action. Either way actions are an emotional response to a stimuli or event. Fear can prompt flight or fight, and compassion can send body signals to prompt others to hug you. An event stimulates emotions to swell, cap, and collapse. The process is consistent from one emotion to another. However like a storm, emotions can vary in speed of formation, intensity, and longevity of the emotion. An emotion affects the anatomy of an action.

Emotional Control

I had the opportunity to examine a voice analysis of subjects under a great deal of stress. The results were quite remarkable. The graph indicated that people who were able to control their emotions tend to hover over or near the flatline area of the scale, labelled as the 'balance zone and the low zone’.
People who struggled to keep their emotion in check were situated on the ‘medium to high zone’ on the graph. Equally has interesting was the fact that the intensity of an upward emotion often had a negative counterpart with similar intensity. In other words, an up emotion is often paired off with a down emotion. Most people are not aware of the emotional pair because healthy feelings are experienced in the flatline to low intensity zones. They go unnoticed. However extreme fluctuations are apparent. Many people who suffer from an addiction, suffer from bouts of depression. People who balance their emotions are able to recover quickly while those living on the cap of an intense emotion require more time to deal with issues. Meditation is a good start to calming your emotions
