      It’s everything I believe, we are too attached to our brains and a step away from our hearts and our souls..... a mystery we run from.

        @haje this is so good!!!

        Through upbringing and schooling, many of us are dealt technical skills. And yes, those are necessary to function in society. But the ‘creative eye’; or a connection with our emotional selves, if you will; is neglected.

        That’s IT! Such a strong, important point. Upvote upvote upvote

      I feel this every day as a music lover. Constantly seeking out music which walks this line if the name of the game.

      YESSSSS!!!! One of my absolute favorite episodes of Star Trek was when Spock was able to feel his emotions. VERY powerful for a young, oversensitive girl who grew up in an era where men were not encouraged to show their emotions. For anyone interested, there is a fabulous free 9 page PDF called Your Emotional Vocabulary List by Karla McLaren. She is a leading authority on Emotional Intelligence and I found her work life changing.
