In my experience, you cannot tamp down emotions or “leash” them, They will ALWAYS find there way to the surface. You CANNOT eliminate the negative aspects of yourself. You must WORK to find a way to channel those negative aspects into positive avenues that benefit all.Jdjr wrote: ↑Thu Aug 30, 2018 4:00 pmI am not referring to "tamping down emotions to be more social" or "faking it". What I refer to has nothing to do with social interaction. It goes to SELF. To identify and eliminate negative emotions such as anger, hatred, deceit, and greed, etc., all of which are fear based, is necessary to lower entropy, yes? To leash them is to gain control over them while identifying the source and then eliminating them. Further, you no longer send negative emotions out and influence others. What you send out comes back to you.Sainbury wrote: ↑Thu Aug 30, 2018 2:36 pm Thanks for the clarifications.
If you are tamping down emotions to be more social then you are faking who you are at the being level.
Sometimes. If "faking it" is part of a process leading to "making it", then there is value in it, often this is the case if the faking is only temporary -- but there is risk. If "faking it" never leads toward "making it", then there is negative value in it -- you will become cynical, self-righteous, and worse off than you were before you started faking it.
Of course faking it may make you less annoying to others, at least until cynical and self-righteous sets in -- but in the end it is a net loss.

Feed back is meaningless if you do not act on it. If someone tells me I am angry, and I had not perceived myself as angry to that point, I am going to identify it, leash it, get to the bottom of it and eliminate it.
What you put out out, you get back. It is true. But what you need to know is that, even those negative aspects can and will be used to help All. You are a integral and essential part of All That Is. There will always be help. Just ask for it. I Love You! Be as angry as you want and I will still Love you. I will Always help You! Forever and Always. :D
