“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”

-Mahatma Gandhi-

…Coming Fall 2020…

“There must be something strangely sacred in salt. It is in our tears and in the sea.”

-Kahlil Gibran-

The ocean covers 70 percent of the earth and 80 percent of it’s contents and species remain unknown. Humans experience emotions within cognitive and decision-making processes and many feelings relevant to context remain unrealized.

…Coming Fall 2020…

Innovative. Educational. Inspiring. A curriculum built on a platform of 21 months of quantitative and qualitative field research.

“This is the miracle that happens every time to those who really love: the more they give, the more they possess.”

-Rainer Maria Rilke-

Before I summarize today’s final group demonstration of the bi-weekly pre-release of The Emotional Advantage (First Edition) Volume Two (All Ages), please allow me to express how grateful I am to every person, group, and organization for participating in the curriculum for the past nine months. Your feedback has played an instrumental part in measuring the curriculum’s validity and effectiveness of scope and trajectory. I feel very blessed to continue learning and celebrating creativity with you. Appreciate your ongoing support and interest.

Today’s demonstrated themes were Grateful and Ambitious!

Practicing gratitude has many benefits. Being proactive about finding a reason to feel grateful is so powerful it causes a chain reaction to the way one sees and interacts with the entire world through a more positive lens, producing a feedback loop of kindness. This is important because extreme levels of happiness never last forever and phenomena referred to as hedonic adaptation decreases enjoyable emotions associated with any stimulus over time. Ambition has both positive and negative implications depending on whether values align with one’s aspired outcome.

“Think… of the world you carry within you.”

-Rainer Maria Rilke-

Today’s demonstrated themes were Jealous and Confident!

Jealously consists of one or more emotions. Typically fear and anger. Confidence facilitates the self-monitoring of one’s own metacognition process. We learned about these concepts integrated into the study of natural disasters and endangered animal species in Africa.

The Emotional Advantage examines the interrelationships between emotions and cognitive processes.

Timeless Quote and Articles

“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

-Henry David Thoreau-

Scientific name: Vulpes vulpes

“Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind.”

-Leonardo da Vinci-

Every emotion inside cognition can become processed in a neutral way before assigning a positive or negative annotation. When every feeling is appraised as valuable information for understanding and devising a response to context, one becomes empowered in their decision-making process. The Emotional Advantage explores these themes while raising awareness about nature-based sciences, like the endangered species, the Chinese Pangolin.

Today’s demonstrated themes were Shame and Resilience!
