Real Morality: Emotional Shame?

Emotional Shame?   I think it is crazy how we chance one emotional experience after another and yet are made to feel shame from others or feel ashamed oneself when we are moved by others emotional experiences or ourselves have an emotional experience, when the reality is we are all emotional feeling beings by nature just self-hating and thinking this is reason? Hating our beneficial emotional lives as if we do not live by feeling emotions and in fact if they were so removed we actually wouldn’t have much depth or quality in life as we do now, which we seem to currently seek so desperately all the while loathing it with a wrongly learned shame.  De-escalating Emotional Hijackings? I really need to relax more as I am not thinking clear enough. I am only human too, like anyone. I see am starting to get too angry in general, I need to strive to be more calm, its just such open extreme hate against others really pisses me off. So I am not wanting to make mistakes by overreacting, something I can at times feel quite motivated to do if I am not working on it. I am really overloaded and feeling volatile right now and am working on de-escalating my emotional hijackings as best I can. I have been in a bad mood with all the shit storm going on and wanted to do something crazy but not harmful. So, I unblocked like 1,000 people from my block list on my Facebook profile. Thus, it may get interesting around here. \m/ Emotional Hijacking? “Emotional hijacking is a state when...

Moral fear and Moral love (which together motivate my axiological ethics)?

Moral fear and Moral love (which together motivate my axiological ethics)? Harm is often a violation of trust and a violation of expected trust makes bad things even worse like if I told you a child was killed, you would feel it was terrible but if I further told you it was the child’s doctor that murdered the child out of anger. You would be more angered as doctors are expected to care for people not harm them. And if you think that is bad what if I further told you the doctor who killed the child was her mother would you hold her even mone in contempt as mothers also are expected to care and not kill children, so a violation of trust is terrible and even makes things worse. Therefore, we can see why people that hold places of trust should never abuse them, and that we should hold them accountable if they do violate such trust by harming others. Morality first, that is morality should be at the forefront in all I do. I hope I am always strong enough to put my morality at the forefront in all I do, so much so, that it is obvious in the ways I think and behave. To better grasp, a naturalistic morality one should see the perspective of how there is a self-regulatory effect on the self-evaluative moral emotions, such as shame and guilt. Broadly conceived, self-regulation distinguishes between two types of motivation: approach/activation and avoidance/inhibition. one should conceptually understand the socialization dimensions (parental restrictiveness versus nurturance), associated emotions (anxiety versus empathy), and forms of morality (proscriptive versus prescriptive) that...

Justice in the Workplace: morality/ethical dimensions

The Oxford Handbook of Justice in the Workplace (by Russell Cropanzano & Maureen L. Ambrose)   Scholarship on justice and affect have expanded dramatically in recent years, spanning investigations of the relationships between justice and discrete emotions as well as justice and affective dimensions (e.g ., valence). The present chapter summarizes and builds on the later developments by exploring how several leading theories of justice can organize and lend insight to research that takes a dimensional approach to affect. In particular, we explore the valence dimension of affect in relation to the self-interest model of justice, the uncertainty dimension of affect in relation to the uncertainty management model of justice, the morality dimension of affect in relation to the deontic model of justice and the social dimension of affect in relation to the relational models of justice. We also discuss the value of the dimensional approach for organizing prior findings, highlighting novel insights, and identifying new pathways for justice research. Most prominently, a number of scholars have explored moral outrage in association with perceived injustice. However, justice research examining moral outrage does not always distinguish it from related emotions, such as anger, that may be invoked by self-interest (rather than social concerns) and may motivate actions that are not prosocial. Inattention to this distinction may be attributed to a focus solely on discrete emotions and not also on the morality/ethical dimension of emotions. For example, recipients of injustice may feel angry simply because they perceive that their outcomes are unfair or unfavorable, and thus selfish concerns rather than concern about the violations of morality/ethical codes that govern society may elicit...

Traces of Totemism In Judaism  

Traces of Totemism In Judaism   Totemism (theoretical belief in a mythical relationship with powers/spirits through a totem item). Believe in spirit-filled life and/or afterlife can be attached to or be expressed in things or objects (you are a hidden totemist/Totemism: an approximately 50,000-year-old belief system) “A totem is any species of plants or animals thought to possess supernatural powers. Each group within the society may have its own totem, including associated ceremonies. Totemic beliefs may not be as foreign to the Western mind as first expected; many Westerners have totems. School mascots, symbols, and emblems all constitute totems.” Ref “The investigation of totemism is strictly the work of the anthropologist. Its mention in a study of this kind is necessitated by the fact that some maintain that the idea of a god was evolved from the idea of a totem and that honors to a god were but a form of magnification of honors to a totem. The eating of a sacrifice offered to a god was accordingly explained upon the basis of eating the god and thus incorporating his qualities. It is maintained by some and contested by others that every tribe of people has retained vestiges of original totemism and that therefore totemism is a true ancestor of religion. Scholars differ upon the thesis of the universality of early totemism. Totemistic practices are widely variant and totemism itself is a social philosophy rather than a religious tenet. Moreover, it is not necessary to suppose that the social and religious development of every people has been mechanically identical. After the entrance of human intellect and will upon the scene, it is...

Ok, you seem confused so let’s talk about Buddhism.

Do you really know about buddhism? Buddhism has gods like polytheistic deism; “without asserting any deities created the universe” What is buddhism’s holy books or writing and some info them? According to religion facts in buddhism, there are a vast number of Buddhist scriptures and religious texts, which are commonly divided into the categories of canonical and non-canonical. The former, also called the Sutras (Sanskrit) or Suttas (Pali) are believed to be, either literally or metaphorically, the actual words of the buddha. The latter are commentaries on canonical texts, other treatises on the dharma, and collections of quotes, histories, grammars, etc. This categorization is not universal, however: there will always be texts that cross boundaries, or that belong in more than one category. Moreover, zen buddhism rejects scriptures altogether as an ineffective path to enlightenment. The articles below provide overviews of some of the most notable buddhist texts. Tripitaka (Pali Canon) The Tripitaka (Tipitaka in Pali) in Theravada buddhism is the earliest collection of buddhist teachings and the only text recognized as canonical by Theravada buddhists. The collection is also referred to as the Pali Canon, after the language in which it was first written. It is a vast collection of writings, comprising up to 50 volumes. Many commentaries have been added over the centuries, however. Tripitaka means “three baskets,” from the way in which it was originally recorded: the text was written on long, narrow leaves, which were sewn at the edges then grouped into bunches and stored in baskets. Mahayana Sutras Mahayana buddhism reveres the Tripitaka as a sacred text but adds to it the Sutras, which reflect distinctively Mahayana...
