3/21(Sat.)The gift and power of emotional courage (Julian.)

Dear Yoyoers,

It might not appeal so excitingly, but I found this TED talk quite profound and am touched by the points the speaker had present. It's about how you see and deal with personal emotions in everyday lives from a fundamental perspective. The video has English subtitle and Chinese/English scripts. I got to savor the thorough ideas of the speech after giving a further view of the Chinese text. Therefore, I recommend two kinds of readers to refer to Chinese script, for who have only limited minutes to go through the topic, and for those have sufficient time to extend the reading: Link: Chinese/English text (Please scroll down to select Chinese or English and see the script below the screen box): https://www.ted.com/talks/susan_david_t ... pt#t-91962

Suggested Questions for Session I :

1. Are you an emotional person? Do you think you have good control over emotions?
2. Why do we have feelings? Is it just a natural response to everything? What is the value of emotions?
3. Do you believe how we deal with our inner world drives everything? According to the speaker, every aspect of our lives is a projection of our inner self. Is there any personal example which can reflect or present an opposite result from it?
4. In most of the cases, we will try to encourage people to think positive. Is there any chance that it could be incorrect? Do you think being forced to thinking positive is wrong? (False positiveness)

Suggested Questions for Session II :

5. What is the difference between peoples in western and eastern society in dealing with emotional issues in your opinion/observation?
6. There are individuals who don't feel like to encounter difficulties, potential disappointment and challenges. The speaker describes it "Having a dead man's goal". Is there anything wrong with having dead man's goal?
7. According to the author, the ability to accurately describe/ differentiate the emotion is crucial. The more you can understand how you feel at the moment, the better control you can have toward your emotions. Have you ever try to clarify your feelings and go on to deal with the emotional issues?
8. When people get to embrace their true emotions, and the participation, creativity and new ideas thrive with it. How do you agree with it? Any examples to support or dis-support with it?
9. "Courage is not an absence of fears, courage is fear walking." What is your opinion?

Hey Fellows, In case that you haven't aware, There will be No regular meeting this coming Sat. afternoon! due to the cause of coronavirus. Please enjoy the break, take the time and do the things you want. :)

*Below are some key messages excerpted from the speech that I'd like to share with you: (Any distinctive thoughts that's totally fine and respected.)

-When we push aside normal emotions to embrace false positivity, we lose our capacity to develop skills to deal with the world as it is, not as we wish it to be.
-You don't want to have negative feelings..it's understandable, but.. you have dead people's goal. Only dead people never get unwanted or inconvenienced by their feelings. Only dead people never get stressed, never get broken hearts, never experience the disappointment that comes with failure.
-Discomfort is the price of admission to a meaningful life.
-So how do we begin to dismantle rigidity and embrace emotional agility? -Open to the heart that feels pain, grief, loss and regret.
-Research now shows that the radical acceptance of all of our emotions, even the messy, difficult one is the cornerstone to resilience, thriving and true authentic happiness.
-But emotional agility is more than just an acceptance of emotions, and we also know that the accuracy matters.
-The difference of "I'm stressed", and "stress and that knowing dread of "I'm in the wrong career.""
-When we label our emotions more accurately, we are more able to discern the precise cause of our feelings.
-The brain will then not only take steps, but the right steps.
-Our emotions contain flashing lights to things that we care about.
-But when our moment comes, to face our fragility, in that ultimate time, it will ask us "Are you agile?","Are you agile?". Let the moment be an unreserved "yes". A "yes" born of a lifelong correspondence with your own heart, and in seeing yourself. Because in seeing yourself, you will able to see others, too. The only sustainable way forward, in a fragile, beautiful world. Sawubona.
