Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness
"Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness. Emotional actions are the most contracted, narrowing, dangerous form of behavior.

The romantic poetry and fiction of the last 200 years has quite blinded us to the fact that emotions are an active and harmful form of stupor.

Any peasant can tell you that. Beware of emotions. Any child can tell you that. Watch out for the emotional person. He is a lurching lunatic.

Emotions are caused by biochemical secretions in the body to serve during the state of acute emergency. An emotional person is a blind, crazed maniac. Emotions are addictive and narcotic and stupefacient.

Do not trust anyone who comes on emotional.

What are the emotions? In a book entitled Interpersonal Diagnosis of Personality, written when I was a psychologist, I presented classifications of emotions and detailed descriptions of their moderate and extreme manifestations. Emotions are all based on fear. [...]

The emotional person cannot think; he cannot perform any effective game action (except in acts of physical aggression and strength). The emotional person is turned off sensually. His body is a churning robot. [...]

The only state in which we can learn, harmonize, grow, merge, join, understand is the absence of emotion. This is called bliss or ecstasy, attained through centering the emotions. [...]

Conscious love is not an emotion; it is serene merging with yourself, with other people, with other forms of energy. Love cannot exist in an emotional state. [...]

The great kick of the mystic experience, the exultant, ecstatic hit, is the sudden relief from emotional pressure.

Re: Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness
"Even the "enlightened" have a residual suspicion that being free from emotions is somehow "unnatural" or "wrong". This is probably because they still view emotion within a false dichotomy of expression vs suppression – so any emotionless state is seen as suppression (or "repression") – and therefore "unhealthy". Only by rejecting this dichotomy can we perceive relative freedom from emotions as "good".

Another piece of conventional wisdom worth rejecting: that we need to be emotional in order to "feel" or "be sensitive to" nature, art, people, eroticism, relationships, etc – which is a falsehood on the same level as: that we need to be chronically distracted by trivia in order to feel pleasure (see The Distraction System >).

Although beyond the scope of this article, it's worth pondering why pioneering psychologist Wilhelm Reich used the term "emotional plague" to describe certain authoritarian, fascistic tendencies in "normal", "respectable" societies."

From the article... worth reading the whole thing IMO.

Emotions are the essence of life, you are meant to experience each and every one depending on what is happening. Avoiding even one or getting bogged down where you fail to be able to change them as the situation changes is where the problem begins.

Knowing yourself and being in full control of your own emotional self is a powerful thing, it's no wonder he was labeled "the most dangerous man in America" trying to educate people about their potentials apparently makes you satan these days.

Re: Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness
There are a lot of emotions, starting from those that are unopleasant like hate and envy, and ending with a kind of emotion that make awareness expand, like sweet emotions when you feel love towards someone.

Re: Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness
Thanks OP.

The truth of your post is self-evident in many of the replies, though I make that as an observation and not a judgement.

Emotions in check make for a harmonious society and can help one achieve peace of mind. To not want to achieve both of these is obvious insanity.

Breathing through the mouth 24/7 is the lowest form of consciousness. Emotions can be perceived as both negative and positive, as it defines our being.

Re: Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness
The beginning of our awareness begins at the base of the spine and is the Alpha.

Existence: The Alpha energy, the Serpent

Sexuality: Division of the Alpha for conscious dissemination
Instinct: Basic animal mind, cause and effect
Emotion: Advanced understanding of cause and effect on us

Audible: Lower Spatial understanding
Visual: Higher Spatial understanding

Spiritual: Complete understanding


We often think by two fields combined.

-Looking at an attractive mate is visual + sexuality
-Music is Audible + Emotion
-Art is visual + emotion
-Fighting is Instinct + existence


When you discharge a mind, like orgasm in sexuality, the higher functions pause.

When raging in anger, we are discharging emotion, thus audible, visual and spiritual logic take a break for that moment.

This also agrees with the Kundalini.

Did you imagine that there could be emotions in heaven? Emotions are closely tied to ego games. Check your emotions at the door to paradise.

Why, then, are emotions built into the human repertoire if they are so painful, demanding and blinding? There is a basic survival purpose. Emotions are the emergency alarms. The organism at the point of death terror goes into a paroxysm of frantic activity. Like a fish flipping blindly out of water. Like a crazy, cornered animal.

There are times when emotions are appropriate and relevant. The reflex biochemical spurt. Fight or flight. There are times when emotional bluffs, like the hair rising on a dog's neck, are appropriate. But the sensible animal avoids situations which elicit fear and the accompanying emotion. Your wise animal prefers to relax or to play [...]

The way to turn off the emotions is to turn on the senses, turn on to your body... [from pages 37-40]"

You have got to be kidding,Timothy Leary
Lunatic fringe psycotic???? Why would anyone want to listen to what he said???



[link to www.savethemales.ca]
In the 1950's, the CIA experimented with LSD for use in interrogation and as a weapon.

In the 1960's they used this weapon to divert idealistic Americans from the path of social responsibility to one of introspection and self-gratification, i.e. "spiritual liberation."

They neutralized my generation by turning social activists into "flower children" advocating "peace and love."

The mantra of the age was "Tune in, Turn on and Drop Out". The prophet was psychologist, Dr. Timothy Leary (1920-1996).

Was Leary working for the CIA?

Re: Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness
OP is 100% correct. Why do you think the media's first objective is to get people to react emotionally to a story? Sandy Hook is a prime example- once people attach emotionally, critical thinking goes out the window. Many people are blinded by their emotions- which can be as easily triggered as pushing a button. And don't think The Thugs in Charge are not aware of this.
To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.
