Emotions and feelings play a pivotal role in an individual’s life. Often disregarded as intangible and fleeting, they nonetheless comprise some of the most precious assets one can possess. They are the underpinning of human experience, shaping our understanding of the world, our relationships, and ourselves. They are the vibrancy in the tapestry of life, giving color and depth to our experiences.

They’re how we celebrate life itself.

All pleasure and happiness—the ultimate aspirations of human life—are experienced through our personal, for-our-eyes-only emotions. Happiness, in all its forms, is an emotional state, a feeling of joy and contentment that permeates our being. Pleasure, too, is a direct product of our emotions, a feeling of satisfaction and enjoyment. Without the capacity for emotion, these enriching experiences would be inaccessible. Our emotions enable us to experience the full spectrum of life, from the euphoric highs to the sorrowful lows, and everything in between.

The final moral purpose of all human life is rational happiness. We strive to attain a state of happiness that is not just fleeting and ephemeral, but also grounded in reason and rationality. It is about finding meaning and fulfillment in our lives, about aligning our actions with our values and aspirations. It’s about achieving a sense of balance and inner peace, a state of being that is congruent with our true nature and highest ideals.

Negative emotions, on the other hand, serve as reliable warning signals, alerting us when we are acting in ways that are contrary to our nature, well-being, and happiness. They are the alarm bells that ring when we veer off course, when we engage in actions that are not in our best interests. Negative emotions like fear, anger, guilt, or sadness indicate that something is amiss, that we need to pay attention and take corrective action. They help us steer clear of harm and guide us back onto the path of wellbeing.

When we act mystically or contrary to our innate nature, negative emotions surface as a response. They are our body’s natural way of communicating that our current state of being is not conducive to our overall happiness. By paying attention to these emotions, we can identify the areas of our life that need attention and improvement.

… Emotions are the ultimate rewards and punishments in a person’s life, and they largely depend on the kind of life a person decides to lead. The emotional state of a person can be either happy or unhappy, based on whether they have embraced or rejected mysticism. To reject mysticism means to accept full responsibility for comprehending and truthfully dealing with reality. Only by rejecting mysticism can a person effectively perceive and integrate reality, solve problems of growth, and develop the skills needed to achieve prosperity, power, and love. This then leads to the self-esteem and emotional state necessary to experience lasting well-being, mental pleasures, and romantic love. Each individual has control over their broad emotional state (i.e., being fundamentally happy or unhappy) by regularly choosing to be truthful or deceitful — to operate through practical thinking or mystical thinking.

The sensations of pleasure and happiness in human beings are felt through sensory and emotional channels. To truly experience these feelings, one must cultivate a comprehensive understanding of emotions and accept them without any mystic associations or feelings of guilt. However, before this, it is crucial for a person to firmly establish their psychological, philosophical, and productivity stances to achieve the self-esteem needed for romantic love and psychuous pleasures. Once this is accomplished, the individual needs to let go of any mystical guilt to fully embrace their deserved emotions of happiness, pleasure, and love.

Emotions are the only means through which one can experience happiness, pleasure, and love. If an individual suppresses their emotions[1], they also suppress their ability to experience deserved happiness and pleasure – the fundamental moral goal of human existence.

Emotions are essential for the psychological survival of a human being. If an individual consistently suppresses emotions or lessens self-awareness, their ability to experience feelings will gradually decline. As a result, they must resort to more extreme methods to feel anything, until the only remaining feeling is pain. However, since the individual needs to experience some kind of emotion, they aim to feel pain. The most straightforward and fastest route towards achieve this feeling of pain is through harmful actions justified through mysticism.

Furthermore, as an individual’s consciousness and ability to integrate decreases, it becomes progressively harder to undertake more long-term, positive actions. Simultaneously, they are more likely to resort to mysticism, choosing increasingly destructive actions to experience feelings. Such destructive behaviors may involve manipulation, use of force (either politically or criminally) to exert control or loot others, drug or alcohol use, promiscuity, harmful masochism or sadism, vandalism, thrill killings, mass murder, instigating wars, and genocide.

In essence, emotions and feelings are not just mere transient states of being. They are our internal compass, guiding us towards happiness and wellbeing. They enable us to experience life in all its richness and complexity and serve as a barometer for our actions and decisions. By understanding and embracing our emotions, we can navigate our lives with greater wisdom and cultivate a state of rational happiness.

… The question might be raised or asked, how can anyone change the emotions they automatically experience—say, from predominantly bad and dark, to predominantly good and uplifting? The answer to that question lies in an understanding of what emotions are: an automatic response to the values an individual truly holds.

Many values that individuals hold are the consequence of upbringing, culture, religious sects, education, indoctrination, peer pressure, people pleasing, lip service, etc. However, all individuals have the power to rationally, critically, and non-mystically evaluate the values they purport to hold and embrace, and when found wanting, irrational, destructive, lazy, mystical, and/or worse, all have the power to reject them. To discard them. To toss them asunder. It is important to renounce them explicitly, verbally, and to state the reasons by which the individual now and forevermore condemns such “values.”

Indeed, these 114 No-Pill Advantages are just such a “cheat-sheet” as to which sorts of values are likely to result in bad automatic emotional responses versus those that will result in good and wholesome responses.

By the time one arrives at the ability to judiciously evaluate their values in accordance with these 114 Lessons and other valuable resources, any “voids” left will be quickly filled…with the good, wholesome, productive, and loving values pushing out the bad.

[1] Attempting to deny emotions is termed as repression of emotions. This repression is detrimental and entirely distinct from the suppression of emotions, which can be beneficial and essential. Suppression of emotions refers to the disciplined act of consciously setting aside emotions to process them later at a more suitable time or in a more regulated way. When suppressing an emotion, one doesn’t deny its existence and remains completely aware of it. Suppression serves as a crucial instrument for avoiding harmful, irrational responses within oneself.
