is to connect our animal nature with the world in which it is embedded.
Emotions respond immediately to the truth of things.

[One lets] emotion guide behavior into participation with things as they appear."
~ James Hillman, from:
'Emotion: A Comprehensive Phenomenology of Theories
and Their Meanings for Therapy', 1960

we begin to realize that they come to us from elsewhere,

moving it to a more-than-human condition of excitement and fury,
of sorrow and mourning, of folly and ecstatic desire."
~ James Hillman ~

"Do or do not...
there is no try"
~ Yoda ~

"People have a hard time letting go of their suffering.
Out of a fear of the unknown,
they prefer suffering that is familiar."
