emotions

A Quote by Thomas Stearns Eliot on poetry, poets, personality, emotions, expression, escape, and t s elliot

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.

T.S. Eliot (1888 - 1965)

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on relationships, ego, actions, thoughts, emotions, presence, and love


As long as the ego runs your life, most of your thoughts, emotions, and actions arise from desire and fear. In relationships you then either want or fear something from the other person.

What you want from them may be pleasure or material gain, recognition, praise or attention, or a strengthening of your sense of self through comparison and through establishing that you are, have, or know more than they. What you fear is that the opposite may be the case, and they may diminish your sense of self in some way.

When you make the present moment the focal point of your attention — instead of using it as a means to an end — you go beyond the ego and beyond the unconscious compulsion to use people as a means to an end, the end being self-enhancement at the cost of others. When you give your fullest attention to whoever you are interacting with, you take past and future out of the relationship, except for practical matters. When you are fully present with everyone you meet, you relinquish the conceptual identity you made for them — your interpretation of who they are and what they did in the past — and are able to interact without the egoic movements of desire and fear. Attention, which is alert stillness, is the key.

How wonderful to go beyond wanting and fearing in your relationships. Love does not want or fear anything.

Eckhart Tolle

A Quote by Tarthang Tulku on life, emotions, and lightness

It is important to recognize the power of our emotions--and to take responsibility for them by creating a light and positive atmosphere around ourselves. This attitude of joy that we create helps alleviate states of hopelessness, loneliness, and despair. Our relationships with others thus naturally improve, and little by little the whole of society becomes more positive and balanced.

A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on emotions and lift up

All emotions are pure which gather you and lift you up; that emotion is impure which seizes only one side of your
being and so distorts you.

"Harmonious Emotional Engagement is the tool that allows leaders to take

full advantage of these three simple but profound principles:


People respond emotionally to every situation that occurs in an
organization.

People's negative emotions reduce their performance in an organization.

People's positive emotions enhance their performance in an organization."

Anger is a tool for change when it challenges us to become more of an expert on the self and less of an expert on others.
