The three laws of motion were first compiled by Sir Isaac Newton in his work Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, first published on July 5, 1687. Newton used them to explain and investigate the motion of many physical objects and systemsth century, the laws of classical mechanics were the ones through which we understood the world we see.3 laws of E-motion!!First Law: Emotions continue to be in a state of flux unless acted upon by an external stimulus called AwarenessSecond Law: The intensity of the Emotion Ei is directly proportional to the importance given to the situation, divided by the level of Awareness, the value of Awareness ranging from 1 to infinite.
In short, Ei = S/A where S is the degree of Significance and A is the level of AwarenessThird Law: Every emotion (positive or negative) released or expressed (consciously or unconsciously) will trigger an equal and opposite response from the universe.First Law of E-motion:
Emotions continue to be in a state of flux unless acted upon by an external stimulus called AwarenessThe unavailability of sunlight for prolonged periods has been found to lead to depression in many people. The multitude of events and environmental changes creates an ever changing landscape of emotions. The rate of change in the external environment can lead to a frustrating emotional flux. While the positive cycle of change is always welcomed, the negative cycle is often difficult to control and is very damaging for some individuals. The key to restore balance and to make sure we are not dragged in a whirl pool of negative set of emotions is Awareness. Awareness is a state of disassociation, a state of witnessing oneself. The state of Awareness calms down the turbulent sea of emotions welling up in our being. Spiritual practices like meditation lead to an increase in awareness. Many scriptures and spiritual Masters have spoken about this Awareness. A state of Awareness is like being Awake, and the emotional turbulences nothing but a dream. This state of Awareness can also be described as a state of Vairagya – or Dispassion from the internal emotional response. Hence the first law postulates that our awakening – a sense of Higher Awareness leads to the arrest of the constant flux in our emotions.The Second Law of E-motion:
The intensity of the Emotion Ei is directly proportional to the significance given to the situation, divided by the level of Awareness, the value of Awareness ranging from 1 to infinite.In short, Ei = S/A where S is the degree of Significance and A is the level of AwarenessAwareness as described in the first law is also responsible for mellowing down the level of our response. The emotional response itself is inevitable, the intensity experienced then is a consequence of the significance we have for the external stimulus and moderated by the level of Awareness.Shama. Awareness does not reduce the significance we put on that event, it just helps us cope with it better. Awareness can also be linked to Viveka – the faculty of discernment which helps distinguish between the permanent and transient, between good and bad.The Third Law of E-motion:
Every emotion (positive or negative) released or expressed (consciously or unconsciously) will trigger an equal and opposite response from the universe.
Unlike the physical world where the action produces an immediate response, why does the emotional response meander through time and space? We do not know fully understand the fabric of the consciousness, the space through which the emotional world works, but it does seem to have the mechanics of the response built in. At the pinnacle of awareness, the field of consciousness is completely neutral, and all actions and their responses dissolve. In some sense this is the annihilation of the positive and negative forces which creates the drama in human mind.Brahman, in absence of duality, these laws do not have relevance. In total Awareness, I am that!
