If you think you know how emotions work, this podcast will turn your world upside-down. Enough so that you may find yourself arguing that what’s being presented can’t be possible.
Before hearing this, I had a hope that we have more control over how we respond to things than we sometimes think. It’s one of the reasons I started meditating: to learn to not get hooked as much by emotions.
Yet it often feels as if an emotion takes me over, as if I have no “choice” in feeling something. But what if emotion is the interpretation of a physiological feeling? What if it’s a way our body tries to “make sense” of a sensation? What if we do have control?
That’s the idea this episode presents.
