Just my opinion - I think when you are able to live your life at the being level there will always be plenty of emotion. And that is the only way you can get honest, and valuable, feedback from others around you. If you are shut down and pretending to be something you are not, then you can deal with the world with a flat effect. You deal with the world through disguising yourself because you are afraid of people reacting to who you really are. Your ego is in service of your fear to protect you from the truth of who you are at the being level.
Tom has a recent video on Intellectual vs Intuitive Process.
That's great insight. I feel like I am becoming more like my real self more naturally each of month. So I believe I am making some progress. But I do think you are correct about disguising myself. Thinking about it, I have a hard time being fully myself at work, because I am definitely different than most people when it comes to interests. Meditating at work during lunch has helped me kind of transfer that core self back into the work place, which has been very beneficial. But the fact that I am not being "me" at work, is probably transferring with me anywhere I go afterwards.
What's really interesting is, now that I have brought this desire to feel emotions again up in my intent, last night I had one of the deepest conversations I've had with my wife in awhile. I felt very connected with her. It was really good for both of us. It's strange how intention can alter reality so quickly but also within it's own timeframe. :)
Thank you for bringing a different perspective than what I've observed myself. I will ponder on this and try to apply it to myself. I will also watch the video you posted. Thank you for your reply!
