WHAT IS AN EMOTION? (2)
The sources giving rise to an Emotion come out of Spiritual, Metaphysical, Physical, and/or Supernatural realms. All Emotions are a Triad of being a vehicle, which carries a message, and the message having a ‘payload’ capable of activating ones Soul (i.e. ones Divine Spirit) or “Heart” to impact Primary Qualities actually within the person touched by them. A given Emotion’s ‘payload’ is about a Harmonious or Disharmonious—i.e. adaptive or disruptive—influence. The “Genetics” imparted by a given source determines how the Emotion is to develop, for what it is to do, for how it is to appear, for how it is to grow as well as its nature and its capabilities for being/not being a motivator to take calculated risks or to slow, stop, or reverse ones wholesome progress. In turn, these shape the expressions and actions of the resultant Emotion and design the conscious aspects as well as the subjective experiences of the Emotion’s creator. What one does after being “touched” depends upon if one is using Emotional or Spiritual Energy. Emotional Energy based people—called EPs—are full of enthusiasm and excitement initially over a Thing—but that dies as they walk out the door. EPs are unlikely to start the project or give up quickly in favor of some Attractive Distraction or “I’m too busy.” Spiritual Energy (the God Spirit) powered people become “Alive” and tend to “start early and stay late” until the job is complete. Nevertheless, an Emotion starts as a Percept in a totipotent (an elemental response) state of developmental potential for it ripening into a given creation entity of the creator’s choice—as long as it is properly maneuvered, manipulated, and directed.
To elaborate, Spiritual Qualities are God-made “Seed” Archetypes, Laws, and Principles consisting of the Spiritual Elements—each being an Essence and an Ultimate. This process, whereby Qualities have the Triad of being a vehicle, which carries a message, and the message having a ‘payload’ is capable of activating ones Soul (i.e. ones Divine Spirit) or “Heart” to impart “Aliveness Feelings” (Spiritual Emotions) messages actually within touched persons. This also applies to Metaphysical, or Supernatural Primary Qualities. Such is created or enhanced by the metaphorical language–e.g. words, gestures, pictures, or other Figures of Communication (FOC) painting a corresponding mental picture. The Effect is manifested in think, feel, express, actions, and reactions. So, Spiritual Emotions are Instincts carrying the Triad which reflects the will of God, aimed at doing whatever it takes to create, enhance, maintain, protect, and defend the Cosmic Organism, including oneself. Metaphysical Emotions concern realistically promoting “what is For me” and protecting or defending whatever is “Against me”. Physical Emotions (blush) are usually from involuntary physiological reactions, as utilized by the Lie Detector tests to give clues as to whether one is telling the truth or not. Supernatural Emotions branch in many directions. One branch concerns Silly” things “out of this world” and thereby supply Pleasure, Awe, and Fun. Second may be alternate routes to explain what is of serious business in a manner the people can understand. This is what African Tradition’s Spiritual FOC (e.g. Spiritual Metaphors) are about. Third is the Disharmony generated by Ignorant people without the intent to be Evil. Fourth is Evil people’s Indifference/Hate/Evil/Sadism Complex’s anti-Spiritual Elements displays that cause needless threats, disturbances, damages, destructions, or replacements.
The term “Emotional State,” when applied to certain situations, refers to such temporary displays as the basic Emotions as well as to complex Emotions—e.g. indignation, remorse, embarrassment, shame, grief, distress, cravings, and disgust. Then there are Prevailing Dispositions—as in: (1) Attitudes towards a “Thing”–like admiration, contempt, gratitude, resentment, jealousy, the Indifference/Hate/Evil/Sadism Complex, sympathy; (2) Dispositions to think, express, and do in certain ways toward “Things” of a certain kind under Secular circumstances—e.g. friendliness, humility, benevolence, generosity; (3) Dispositions to think, express, and do in natural and instinct ways toward “Things” of a Spiritual Humanity nature—e.g. Compassion; and (4) Liabilities to Emotional States—e.g. hyper-excitability, fearfulness, and irritability. Prevailing Disposition Moods have the ability to mold the brain into changing so as to be compatible with the type of Emotional learning to which it is exposed—a process called the brain’s “Neuro-plasticity.” jabaileymd.com
