emotional intelligence - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Explanations of most aspects of life can only make real sense if they are emotionally intelligent, if they can anchor a person to their inner reality. If the inner reality is anchored they can make sense of the external world. Thus empathy and logic must always be consulted, must always work in unity, because a divided self will, in time, bring a divided world. What is within will manifest externally. Win me vs. me and all will begin to fix itself.
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.
When we become great teachers of emotional intelligence we will delete the alt-right. When we explain how their new linguistics is acting as an catalyst for emotional indifference - the biological opposite of love - people will start to question how these subcultures are recoding and reprogramming their brains into isolated emotional spaces where they cannot access the love they need for good health. "Wrongthink" is made of "wrong" and "think" and will both ping the amygdala and (in some people) the PAG. This changes brain chemistry and traps people into their primitive brains, the parts that will prepare them for genocide and war, the parts that are incapable of empathy, logic and self control - all of the most desirable traits in humanity. Thus they unwittingly destroy that which they claim to seek - now, that is stupid, that is really, really fucking stupid. Alt-right delete. Let's do it.
