Emotional currency

Emotional currency

Emotional currency is the things we do, the roles we endorse for others to accept us, appreciate us, love us. This is Prakriti for yogis, our personality.

It can be for example, to take great care of ones physical appearance, to make repeated jokes, to take care of others before oneself, to be smart, but also to be sick all the time, sad or depressed …

But basically, what we want is to be seen at our deepest level, for what we really are, this is Purusha, our soul.

Does that speak to you? It is quite easy to identify the emotional currency of the people around us. But could you take a few moments to think about your main emotional currency? To validate your first intuition, you can observe yourself in action in the days to come!

Awareness is the first step towards evolution … because would not the ideal be to be simply loved when we are authentic?

Mindfulness meditation

Mindfulness meditation comes from the Buddhist ancestral tradition. Refined from its religious aspects, it integrates the latest advances in neurosciences to provide a quality of being to practitioners of the modern Western world.

It is about deliberately direct your attention, without judgment, moment by moment to experience the present.

Regular practice of meditation opens a gentle and caring investigation of the nature of one’s own mind, to see more and more clearly the causes of suffering, recognize the reaction patterns, commitment, desire, that leads to behave thoughtlessly or under the control of our egocentric needs.

Gradually you gain freedom, wisdom and peace.
