WITHOUT EMOTION, THERE IS NO WAY TO PUT THINGS INTO EFFECT

In INSIGHTS by Sonia Gomes8 Comments

One of my first questions to a teacher was about emotions. In my mistaken view, Buddhists were people who had subjugated all their conflicts, and so they lived continually in a state of equilibrium, which, for me, made them unshakable, but also somewhat insensitive. If I practiced Buddhism, would I become a person in total self-control, cold and without emotions?
