rising above our emotions
helps us to keep our hearts pure,
so that we can spread love and compassion more generously,
without compromise or complication.
love is usually associated with warmth,
and selfishness with coldness,
so this may seem surprising.
but relishing your own emotions
keeps your warmth to yourself,
whereas observing them with detachment
frees you to be wonderful.
