Here is an insightful quote from within this book:
“Emotions cannot be permanent, that’s why they are called emotions; the word comes from motion, movement. They move, hence they are emotions. From one to another you continuously change.
This moment you are sad, that moment you are happy; this moment you are angry, that moment you are very compassionate; this moment you are loving, another moment full of hatred; the morning was beautiful, the evening is ugly. This goes on.
This cannot be your nature, because behind all these changes something is needed like a thread which holds all of them together.”
