Re: Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness
I'll opt for emotions any day over the emotionless zombie state!
 Quoting: Ozicell




Yes, as long as you are aware.

What you are aware of you are in control of; what you are not aware of is in control of you.
 Quoting: Hollow Bones


Very True! So to be emotionless is to be NOT aware and hence to be under the control of other forces! :)

Re: Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness
Great post OP, I can completely relate to that. Just this morning I got up very emotional due to some silly relationship issues, and I was immeadiately aware at how "foreign" to myself this state is. I still feel it, though trying to observe, not suppress...not get tangled with it. These emotions almost feel like an entity in themselves...hard to explain in words.

"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
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.
 Quoting: Hollow Bones


To be emotional does not mean that critical thinking goes out of the window. It is not truth. Emotions are fundamentally significant in social life and in ability to be emphatic to others. Human are not able to be emphatic to others without emotions. No emotions = sociopaths, serial killers etc...
 Quoting: Skylla 34679921



Humans are not able to be emphatic to others without BEING AWARE of their emotions. Just by being emotional does not mean one will be emphatic.

Emotions stem from fear and lead to negativity.

Pure love for all around you, the earth and all its beings, is the only truth. When you feel connected to the earth and all around you, your actions and behavior will be in alignment with that, it is our essential truth. How could this possibly lead one to be a serial killer?

peace
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 31522517


it could not. but you speak of the state being when one resides in one's heart (4th center)

emotions referred in the thread are in fact instinctual/animalistic emotions/ and a dysfunctional (e.g. repressed) instinctual center can lead to psychopaths.

i've read in a book (leftinthedark.org) that according to research most psychopaths suffer from low levels of serotonine combined with high levels of testosterone

Re: Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness
It's ok to feel just don't act on the feelings. Watch them dance in front of you. Then LOL. Also get your ego out of the way and emotions don't seem to pop up as much.

One way to get out of an emotional state is to center yourself and repeat this is not happening, this is not real and breath. Soon the emotion will go away.

OK READ IT!!!

So are we to be unaffected by the mass murderer? Or the rapist or the child molester? What about the dying millions who are denied the abundance that is thrown away under the guise of health that in reality could provide sustenance for those millions and their suffering children.

It is the desensitisation to these things that for some has made this life HELL on Earth!

COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS

The shrubs and the grass were covered with the dew of the night. In the first rays of the morning sun, the dewdrops glistened with all the colors of the rainbow. The Master cherished the early hours of the dawn in which one can hear the first song which heralds the new day.

When we finished our prayers and giving of thanks, we sat down in a meadow which was filled with the fragrance of flowers and herbs. After we sat in silence, contemplating upon this day - so sublime and so unique - someone asked the Master about the different kinds of con-sciousness.

The Master said:

"The minerals and plants have a subconsciousness; the animals have conscious awareness; and man - a self or ego consciousness. Within I each higher level of the natural kingdom, the other lower degrees of consciousness are included as well. Man - who is characterized by his egoconsciousness - has a subconsciousness and conscious awareness as well.

"The subconsciousness includes many Divine processes, including the guidance of the Angelic hierarchy for example. The thoughts and energy of the Angelic hierarchy manifest through all beings. It is this which creates the subconsciousness: the treasury of the past.

"Ego consciousness is a singular process of the individual. Whenever a person thinks and desires to comprehend the meaning of Life, he makes use of this consciousness. All degrees of Consciousness above the ego consciousness are referred to as the 'Supraconsciousness.' There are moments when man is in communion with the Cosmic Consciousness which is one of the levels of Supraconsciousness.

"Ego consciousness does not yet exist in animals. Human consciousness is different in that man is conscious of himself as an individual. When man is inspired by the Cosmic Consciousness, he will experience the Oneness of Life; he begins to look at Nature as one living organism, the cells of which are vital: the plants, the animals, the human beings - altogether, these constitute One Body.

"When a person first enters into the Cosmic Consciousness, new centers in the brain with new capabilities will begin to develop. Man's level of development is determined by his level of consciousness. Until man develops the ability to commune with the Cosmic Consciousness, he will be elated in one moment and sorrowful in the next. The mere fact that he has entered into the Cosmic Consciousness does not indicate that he has attained or comprehended everything: levels of understanding exist there as well. And yet, he will be able - at least in part - to eliminate some of the hardships of his existence. For as long as man lives by his ego consciousness, he will continue to live in constant fear and anxiety of what will happen to him. Man has lived by his ego consciousness for many years. The time has come for him to enter into the Cosmic Consciousness.

"Scripture tells us, 'And God will create a new heaven and a new earth.' The new 'heaven' and the new 'earth' will be for those people who dwell within the Culture of Cosmic Consciousness. Today, the Light of Cosmic Consciousness is increasing. Man is more aware of his faults today than he ever has been during any other time. Man must rise above his ego consciousness that he may enter into the Cosmic Consciousness. Should he not, his existence will remain incomprehensible to him. Now is the time for man to enter into a higher Consciousness. Should he continue to live by his ego consciousness, he will never manifest those sublime thoughts and aspirations which abide within his soul and within his spirit. Man must develop those organs through which his sublime thoughts and feelings may be manifested. The moment in which he attains Cosmic Consciousness, he will begin to realize his aspirations."

A sister spoke about her perception of the Cosmic Consciousness.

The Master continued:

"The Cosmic Consciousness is an extremely dynamic state. One enters into that state of Consciousness when he begins to embrace all beings - from the least to the greatest - and becomes a transmitter of Love that all may be uplifted.

"All should work to attain the Cosmic Consciousness. The one who is 'born again in the Spirit' is the one who abides in Cosmic Consciousness. All can be in communion with such a man. Yet certain essential conditions are required that this time may come.

"Man is just now beginning to comprehend that he belongs to the Great Body of Life. Thus begins the awakening of the Cosmic Consciousness which strives to make all of humankind into One Family which is capable of working together and living in harmony."

Re: Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness
Definition of terms is essential: (from wiki)

In psychology, philosophy, and their many subsets, emotion is the generic term for subjective, conscious experience that is characterized primarily by psychophysiological expressions, biological reactions, and mental states.

Emotion is often associated and considered reciprocally influential with mood, temperament, personality, disposition, and motivation,[citation needed] as well as influenced by hormones and neurotransmitters such as dopamine, noradrenaline, serotonin, oxytocin and cortisol.

Emotion is often the driving force behind motivation, positive or negative.[1] The physiology of emotion is closely linked to arousal of the nervous system with various states and strengths of arousal relating, apparently, to particular emotions. Although those acting primarily on emotion may seem as if they are not thinking, cognition is an important aspect of emotion, particularly the interpretation of events. For example, the experience of fear usually occurs in response to a threat. The cognition of danger and subsequent arousal of the nervous system (e.g. rapid heartbeat and breathing, sweating, muscle tension) is an integral component to the subsequent interpretation and labeling of that arousal as an emotional state.

Emotion is also linked to behavioral tendency. Research on emotion has increased significantly over the past two decades with many fields contributing including psychology, neuroscience, medicine, history, sociology, and even computer science.

The numerous theories that attempt to explain the origin, neurobiology, experience, and function of emotions have only fostered more intense research on this topic. The current research that is being conducted about the concept of emotion involves the development of materials that stimulate and elicit emotion. In addition PET scans and fMRI scans help study the affective processes in the brain.[2]

Re: Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness
Instincts and urges are the lowest forms of consciousness - true emotion not feeding off an urge of mans animal brain, bridge the gap between between the intellect and consciousness. It drives free will and prevents us from being like robots programmed to behave like reptiles on urge and instinct alone.

Re: Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness
So when a man observes his wife giving birth he needs to experience the moment of his child's birth in a logical scientific way. He should pat her on the head and say, "Nice job babe pushing out those pups, I'm heading to Starbucks now".

No Emotion = No Empathy.

Bliss and Ecstasy are emotion of the highest order.

No emotion no happy.

Your quality of life will improve greatly if you limit being around overly emotional people.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19453323


A lot of emotional people know how to have fun and are spontaneous. They are in touch with their heart, with the good and bad, but that doesn't make them any worse than the ordinary Joe.

I guess you are an expert of profiling now, and a psychic.

But love is felt by emotions... doesn't make sense.

We are animals, not robots. You cannot expect people to not have emotions... it's part of HAVING A SOUL.

Re: Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness
I am, or used to be a very emotional person. Trying really hard to watch this in my life, still it is a part of my nature, many planets in cancer and water in my natal chart.
