Question: Is there truly no positive way at all to deal with negative emotions? If there is, would that way be entirely hopeless as well?
Answer: Wise people call the state when we give in, sink into negative emotions as “a fool sitting with his arms folded, consuming his own flesh”.
The only way to successfully deal with, rise above negative emotions is forgetting about ourselves, escaping out of our inherently selfish, egocentric, subjective cocoons.
And in order to escape out of the “self” we need to escape into others.
When we set out to selflessly, unconditionally serve others, true to sense and fulfill their needs, desires as perfectly as possible, we forget about ourselves and all our self-centered negative emotions, concerns disappear.
This is a guaranteed, tried and tested method of dealing with negative emotions!
