[Excerpt from OMW: You and Your Centers]
The EMOTIONAL CENTER has as its Basic Functions the regulation of your intimacy, empathy, and sensitivity. In its simplest description for this exchange, we can say that is how one navigates between MEANINGFUL and MEANINGLESS.
This is everyone's way of infusing or extracting meaning from his or her path/experiences in life.
It is directly linked to the MODE.
No matter what your Mode, in terms of Axis, it is your EMOTIONS that create or destroy your sense of meaning from your experiences.
One cannot fulfill any range of significance in intimacy, sensitivity, without having infused or extracted Meaning.
One cannot implement the Mode in any healthy way without evolving one's range of INSPIRATION.
The more one limits his or her sense of Inspiration, the less-likely one can relate to others, to see himself or herself in others, and more importantly, less-likely to recognize others in himself or herself.
By "others," we speak of any creature, sentient or non-sentient.
In Positive Health, this Center could be described as showing up as GIVING/GENEROUS.
In Negative Health, it can show up as RESENTFUL.
The means by which the Mode is fulfilled at its best is when approached from this state of Giving/Generosity.
The trick here is that no lifetime can be experienced without some experience in giving, but when one begins to keep score, to stand in righteousness, to give when not fully capable of giving, then Resentment begins to step in.
So the evolution of Giving is a matter of one's evolution of Meaning.
... we will close on the Emotional Center by stating that the state of your relationships is a fair means of assessing where you are in terms of Health in the Emotional Center.
