Do you ever wonder where your emotions and feeling come from? Fear, anxiety, depression, inspiration, sadness, anger, jealousy, hatred, or happiness. Are you constantly struggling with negative feelings that disrupt your peace and well-being? Understanding the connection between your mind, emotions, and behaviors is essential for unlocking the wisdom and knowledge within you that can help promote happiness, prosperity, and better Wellness.

Your mind possesses the intelligence and wisdom to navigate life and connect with the universal consciousness. However, this can only be achieved when your mind is at peace and free from disruptions.


So, what is the missing link between your mind, emotions, and behaviors that can help you find tranquility and promote happiness, prosperity, and well-being?

The missing link to mastering your mind and emotions refers to the critical element or factor necessary to understanding ones feelings. Could a specific skill, technique, or mindset enable a human to effectively manage their mental and emotional states?

We seem to misunderstand the mind and psychology, causing people to suffer from roadblocks, limiting beliefs, and mental crises. Over the past 500 years, we've made great strides in understanding physiology, as evidenced by our ability to treat and vaccinate for various diseases.

But when it comes to human being psychology, we seem to be going backward. People live longer than ever, but many live in despair because we don't fully understand how our minds work. We would not face a mental health and wellness crisis if we truly understood what we were doing.

During my mindfulness practice, we discovered a gap between the mind, emotions, and behaviors. This realization helped me overcome my fear, past struggles with stress, depression, and emotional disconnection, caused by past business failures that almost led me to end my life.

My Zen mentor introduced me to the "Mind projector" metaphor, which inspired me to write a short story about my life. This exercise made me aware of how my thoughts created my feelings. Negative emotions were rooted in my thoughts, and the story I told myself became a movie projected in my mind daily, such as "I am not good enough" and "I am a failure." However, our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are not controlled by external factors but by how we perceive and interpret them.

The truth is that our negative experiences come from within, the inner self and thought. Our thoughts shape our experiences, and we will feel angry if we think of an angry thought. Or we fear when our thoughts jump into the "What-If" scenarios of the negative outcome that may or may not happen into the unknown that may lay ahead. This newfound awareness was crucial in freeing myself from the prison of my negative emotions. It enabled me to cultivate a healthier and happier relationship with myself and attain success and happiness in my personal and professional life.

Humans often believe that the outside world creates their experiences and that their eyes are like a camera capturing reality like an IMAX Movie theater. Our mind is the scriptwriter, editor, producer, character, and audience; our senses (smell, taste, touch, hearing, and seeing the five senses or consciousness) are the special effects team. Our thoughts and feelings are like the film on the projector; when projected, they become our stories. We are the audience watching the movie and experiencing it as if it is real.

The projector needs energy like humans need thoughts and feelings to experience life. Thoughts and feelings are like the two sides of the coin, and our feelings reflect our current thinking. But the best thing about human beings is that we have a choice. Like a movie, we can walk out when we don't enjoy it.

Many people try to control and manage their thoughts, but this task is impossible. Our thoughts constantly change; we must learn to accept them without judgment or attachment. They are memories of what happened. It is a distorted thought. Whatever unpleasant experience we might have, whether depression, anxiety, or frustration, is always the thoughts that entertain us at that moment.

By nature, our thoughts are not permanent. They come and go. When they leave our minds, our feelings also leave us. When your negative emotions show up, recognize them, and say hi to them, building a relationship with them. Don't fight or control them, knowing they will come and go. Nothing is wrong with you, so don't try to fix it. Accept it without judgment or attachment and ask yourself questions about "what is," not "what if."

Focus on the moment allows our thoughts to slow down and draw out the wisdom and intelligence of our mind to help guide us on what is next.

It is incredible when we focus on what is. The mind and the universal speak to us and guide us.

We must remember that our thoughts and feelings are not always accurate representations of reality. We can choose which thoughts to entertain and which to let go of, recognizing that thoughts are simply energy that comes and goes. While we cannot control our thoughts, we can choose how we react to them and whether we allow them to dictate our experiences.

Imagine there is a huge water well in front of you, large enough for you to fall in. You couldn't see the bottom if you looked down into the well.

There is a rope, and you grab the rope. A monster is on the other end of the rope, beneath the well. That monster starts pulling you to the well.

You start feeling scared, fighting back and pulling harder, but this monster is too strong. You are holding on to the rope and suffering in pain, knowing you will pull into the well if you hold on to it.


What will you do? Let it go to save yourself, or keep fighting, trying to control the situation and knowing the monster will pull you into the well? All suddenly, you get an insight. You drop the rope.


If you have had challenging experiences in the past and think that is why you are feeling lousy today, it seems that way because you are fighting against the monster. You are wrestling with thoughts and have forgotten that dropping the rope is an option.


Suddenly the resistance is gone when you drop the rope, and you feel free. Why stress out about it? Stress is no good for any human being, and any thin layer of unnecessary thought can pressure our bodies.


In conclusion, our thoughts create our feelings, and feelings drive our behavior. Every thought has a corresponding feeling attached to it. Knowing how our minds work can help us to understand what is thought and let go of our negative emotions, transforming our lives. Our happiness and prosperity are just one positive thought away, and thoughts and emotions are not real. It is an illusion and a movie projected into our minds.
