We're all on our respective journeys, and we choose the energy we bring to the world. Sadness, fear, disgust, and anger have their place and time and can be effective teachers. It's your decision if you want to perpetuate and feed them with more of your conscious energy, or if you decide to focus on more positive vibrations. "There's no cognition without affect."
As you go into the weekend, I invite you to spend another 18 minutes or so and view Antonio Damasio's talk on consciousness.
Peace and love,
