Our emotions create mental pictures that awaken our imagination and trigger memories that encourage further self-development. Positive emotions of love and well-being surface from behind our pain and fear, as feelings of empowerment override the sense of being a victim. Gradually, we begin to take responsibility for our life. As our consciousness expands, we observe our emotions as reactions to the external world and messages regarding the internal condition of our body and psyche. Love, more than fear, comes into our lives now, which allows us to experience our emotions, not as a limitation, but as a creative force.
