World of Emotions
The origin of the word emotion can be translated as "the energy that moves us". Nothing more, nothing less. Emotions are our "fuel for action”. They are the link between our thinking and our doing. Nothing happens without them.
A New Interpretation
Research shows us that emotions are one of our centers of intelligence. It is a domain in which we experience, learn and, have wisdom. Once we see this, we will wonder why we spend so much time building our intellect and so little learning about our emotions.
We are Emotional Beings
It is not something we get to choose. If a person did not have emotions, they could not function. Just as sleeping, breathing, and eating are normal human functions, so are emotions. We are always in one or more emotions, and they exist to help us live productively.
Emotions are Logical
Although it may sound counterintuitive, emotions have a logic to them. First, they are the connection between our thinking and doing so without them we couldn’t put thoughts into action. Second, every emotion does three things: It gives us information, moves us in a specific way and has a purpose. As you explore the Emoli cards, you will begin to see this logic. Our prediction is you will love it.
