To help us understand emotional anatomy, consider our feelings as rainbows of emotion. Just like the many colors of the rainbow, familiarity with our emotional anatomy discovers there are false confidences. Fortunately we can learn to distinguish these other parts of our emotional anatomy from the real thing: Like rainbows, when we stand in a different position, look through a different Lens, it will disappear.
When the Mood changes the Movie changes. We cannot even see confidence when we get lost in depression, insecurity, despair, anxiety, fear, etc. then tricked by false confidence, we get blinded by hope, pride, enthusiasm, etc. in our success or lost in disappointment and frustration at our failures…. These are mood movies.
There is a gentle peace to be found in gratitude and a genuinely rewarding confidence grows grateful when we learn to distinguish it from false confidence. The freedom to choose genuinely rewarding confidence grows greater with familiarity when we are guided by gratitude.
Our Emotional Anatomy is dynamic architecture, just as our physically athletic anatomy is nicely designed to perform well and improve with persistent practice. There is useful confidence within the athlete that improves as the personal performance improves. We are attempting words that will help each of us improve and recognize the
Rainbow of Confidence in our own Emotional Anatomy.
In this same way, familiarity with Emotional Anatomy helps us to develop our skills of navigation, finding our way within our ocean of Emotion. “We are Voyagers”.
Our skills improve rapidly with practice which helps us to understand how
emotional anatomy works to organize and structure our thinking.
When the Mood changes the Movie changes.
It is our hope and responsibility to attract our interest and curiosity into navigating more and more effectively toward the rainbow of gratitude.
Any emotion you can imagine will have a similar rainbow of expression. Only gratitude reliably guides us to more and more gratitude. False confidence can trick us into ways of thinking that will shake us and trap us into lost confidence. The more confidently we are able to find our way through this ocean of emotion, the better we become at distinguishing false confidence within its full spectrum of expression. Gratitude reboots the machine and allows fresh thinking to choose wisely, genuinely rewarding confidence which gratefully grows with familiarity.
It is through gratitude that we discover the intelligently designed guidance system in human emotional anatomy inviting our confidence in the story of freedom to choose wisely, it’s more rewarding. When you are free to choose, choose gratitude.
Freedom to choose, this is our heretage and our legacy.
