“Emotions are dynamic processes that are in a state of flux.
.
.
If you don’t refuel them through obsessive thinking, they will change and fade.
.
.
We learn to be present to the full range of emotions by feeling their changing energetic expressions in the mind and body.
.
.
For example, anger might bring heated, agitated explosive feelings radiating from the chest; sadness might carry a sinking vulnerable quality in the belly; fear might create an unstable quivering sensation in the knees or throat.
.
.
Attending to the physical manifestations of emotions keeps attention focused on the process long enough for you to learn directly about how these difficult states impact your mind.
