Emotional intelligence is a vital part of intelligence, something that steers us down the right paths together to new and beautiful vistas. Emotional intelligence is seeing with clearer vision when you never realised it wasn't perfect before. Emotional intelligence is realising that your car as two headlights instead of just the one. When we learn how to take a step back and see others through the lens of their needs and emotions rather than simply our own, and be generous with our perspective, we grow, we mature, we become capable of better choices for ourselves and others. We learn how to cooperate, trust and feel the joy of giving of ourselves. It is the gift of intuition when we have a loving heart. It is the sense that informs us without need of a word. It is the key to the inner peace that begins to radiate outward to form a peaceful society, sustainable and free.
