As Clint Eastwood said in Dirty Harry,,,, a man must know his limitations, thus man must know the limitations of an emotion!

EKMAN: The third defining characteristic is the most controversial, and that is our typical lack of awareness about emotion.
*
*
*
Consciousness does not play much of a role in emotion.
*
*
*
That is regrettable. We have to work hard to become conscious of the fact that we are getting emotional.
*
*
*
Much of the time, we first learn that we are emotional when someone else tells us, “You’re being emotional.”
*
*
*
My take:
*
So mindfulness explores emotions, innately lets us sense their transient, impermanent nature.
*
*
The peace of mind we desire, that calm knowing, that true, real happiness (joy) should not be mistaken for an emotion.
