Emotional Integrity

Emotional is not the opposite of Rational. Emotions can be, and normally are, Rational. There is a reason for why you feel the way you do. If an emotion is irrational, discovering that can be a powerful tool to let it go. Unless there is some clinical issue that requires help. Emotional Integrity is a variety of happiness. Robert Solomon sees it as an ongoing "meta-emotion". Happiness is a summary evaluative judgement of us being in the world. Spirituality a way of taking that up a level, expanding the judged self to be suprahuman and all-inclusive. Emotional Integrity is developed when reflecting on values, purpose, and whether your emotions are constructive in building the type of life that resonates well. Emotions that serve.
