What if LOve & EmoTions Disappeared Forever?
Do you think it’s going to make any difference to our lives? Do you think, tomorrow when you wake up finding some kind of numbness in your heart, it’s going to be the same as it is today? Do you think the love you feel for your pet or maybe your spouse or perhaps your mother disappears forever? Is it going to be the same?
At least I don’t think so! There is some kind of “emotional intelligence” in everything you do. Even when you are working with a computer language, you need to love the language enough to understand it and incorporate the strategies therein. Everything, every situation, is just vague without the ingredient that is– emotional intelligence.
You might wonder, what if I am an Artificial Intelligence expert? How is Love, or maybe my emotional intelligence is going to make any difference to my work.
So, let me ask you these five questions:
- What has been the driving force that brought you into the profession you are in?
- Why do you want to earn money?
- What would you do if you are left with all the money & luxuries but no one around?
- What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you take up work?
- How much do you agree with the statement “do what you love”?
Ask these questions to yourself & you’ll be very close to what I am trying to communicate through this blog post.
So, we’ve been living in lockdown inside the confines of our homes for a long time. And it has been an emotional roller coaster for all of us. Some people have felt the deep desire to do what they love, ending only with disappointments. But, on the other hand, some people have been living alone, longing for love & be with someone they can feel emotionally connected with.
The other day, a sudden outburst of emotions piqued, and it came to my mind, “what if love & emotions disappeared tomorrow?”
With emotions & love not being a part of our lives, it might take away the meaning of life. We would be left with no depth in anything we are doing. It might leave us empty with no reason to get deeper into what’s happening.
And, there is no way we can face it! We feel that that emotional thread of love connects us to everything we are doing to everything we desire, and dream about. Even if you are thinking of building your dream home, it can be possible only when you can feel that real rush of love and emotion. The world, nature, people, and everything around is just meaningless if it does not have the element of love & emotion. Roger Ebert said it rightly, “Your intellect may be confused, but your emotions will never lie to you.”
So, when we are back from all the mayhem that the pandemic has brought to our lives, make sure that you are as sensitive to love & emotion as you are to other things in your life. Think about the gift we have in abundance and all for FREE– you can’t buy it no matter how much money you have.
