6/4 Where do we get our Emotions for Total Wholeness?

If we see the overall picture, Emotions are observable behaviours because of the chemical changes in our body. That is why chemicals (drugs) can be used to ‘alter our moods’. Using a definition from Selwyn Hughes in his Every Day with Jesus, May, 1998, emotions can be defined as:

“The state of mind …… that produces a feeling …..  which then shows itself in a physical change within the body.”

These chemical changes are influenced largely by how we ‘see’ the world around us.  That is, how we interpret what we see, smell, touch, hear and taste.  The brain is the organ that interprets reality and ties the five senses to thought and emotion.
