It brews, steeps, percolates, steams, pours, brims, empties, evaporates: emotion is the flavor of the moment - an inner-scheme made evident as it filters through the mind. No human gets through the day without being stirred.
It doesn't matter how or why or who's to blame, this stuff you're sipping on or gulping down or letting simmer unattended: it's here to serve enlightened-you.
Forget good and bad; emotion is pure energy!
Strong, dark and bitter is a wake up call. Vaporous and stale: a siren song. The one who turns up the heat or stirs in new ingredients may seem to be "over there," but it's You who chooses what this brew turns into. Work with it, not against. Call it by name so you can own it. Perk it consciously. Cool it deliberately. Transmute it for your good.
For the greater good, transcend.
