The Mid-Term Elections are over, and like any other civilized society, there are winners and losers. One of the ways to avoid toxic emotions that cause immune system suppression is to practice what I call emotional elegance in times of turbulence.This does not mean agreeing with the opposition, but rather removing from the experience, the elements that can make you sick.
The Path of Emotional Elegance begins when you recognize you are engaging in an act of self-caring during a time when resentment, hatred, and hostility, can consume you if you enter the path of intolerance.
This method is deceptively simple in that you do not realize the health benefits it provides. The method is not a pollyanna delusion that all is well. It is rather accessing the exalted emotions and higher cognitions that protect you from primitive affect that can lead to illness during times where your will finds opposition. What you are practicing is courageous tolerance: A convergence of gratitude and serenity that invites both parties to cooperate for a common good that exceeds our puny egos and need to validate our beliefs with subversion. Congratulations to all, if you voted.
