There are all kinds of reasons to hate the world, yourself, and everyone else. A quick peak at the current state of affairs can be likely to yield disappointment and sorrow. But it sucks to grow into hatred. It tenses the body and mind, restricts breath.
Even with an apparent lack in full swing, we are able to connect with compassion. Humans are a creative lot. We create hatred as well as joy through our thoughts and hormonal systems. We're good at it. It's our natural composition. Balance between emotion and logic can be a chore to accomplish. We might have to convince ourselves that wise mind (this balance of emotion and logic) is worth effort. Kind of like when we leave a warm cozy bed to enter an uncertain day.
Our rational minds are important for taking care of day-to-day needs: nourish the body, tend to societal requirements like work or school. The dominant mindset might scream, "Leave emotions out of this!" But the emotion part of our minds is integral to meaningful life. Emotions help us perceive our own boundaries, a feat required to reach states of peace and tranquility.
Each culture and cultures within cultures (families, spiritual communities) have their own definitions for proper rational and emotional balance. In my family, my mom's Chinese culture interacted with my dad's American culture, and I took away a need to numb all of my senses. Looking back, that's how I survived. Now I approach emotions and rational analysis with equal respect... and I open my comprehension to new knowledge. Like, did you know that there might be up to nine human senses?!
Exteroceptive senses ... perceive the body's own position, motion, and state, known as proprioceptive senses. External senses include the traditional five: sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste, as well asthermoception (temperature differences) and possibly an additional weak magnetoception (direction). Proprioceptive senses include nociception (pain); equilibrioception (balance); proprioception (a sense of the position and movement of the parts of one's own body).
Well hello there.
