Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
I have been reading a good deal about Nonviolent Communication. This approach is good at finding the needs and emotions that are underneath anger. I am intrigued with the concept of acceptance that is involved with this program. We are taught to learn to sit back and assess our anger before we respond to someone else. We need to get in touch with our own needs and emotions before we can have empathy for another. So we are silent as we wait to see what is at the bottom of these needs and emotions. We need to take care of ourselves, first to be able to respond with empathy. When we respond from this place we are acknowledging everyone's needs and emotions and not just our own.
I hope that this makes sense. I think that we need to have more calm with people in the world instead of running with our emotions and running over others.
LENS calms the brain, so we can function better without drugs.
