THE EMOTIONS AND THE INTERNAL ORGANS
You have told us the relationship between emotions and internal organs. Besides the heart which relates to joy, the other emotions are negative. Are they counterparts of these negative emotions?
— Vicente, Spain
Yes, they are counterparts of both positive and negative emotions.
The heart is related to joy. When his heart is open, a person feels joyful. But if his heart is close, he will be unable to appreciate joy, even when joyful conditions are present. It is not the same as sadness. We may describe it as grief.
The lungs are related to sadness. When his lungs are blocked, a person is prone to sadness. He remains sad when the situation causing sadness has long past. If he clears the blockage, he flushes out the negative emotion of sadness. The counterpart is solemn. He may become sad if the situation is sorrowful, but only for a short time. The sad emotion will be flushed away quickly.
The liver is related to anger. If his liver is blocked, a person is easily angry, and he harbours the anger for a long time. If his liver is open, a furious situation may make him angry, but only for a short time. The counterpart is being calm.
The kidneys are related to fear. If his kidneys are blocked, be remain fearful even when the frightening situation has long past. But if his kidneys are open, frightening situations do not affect him much. If his kidney energy is strong, he becomes confident, the counterpart of being fearful.
The spleen or stomach is related to anxiety. If his stomach is blocked, he is anxious for no apparent reasons. If the blockage is cleared, apprehensive situations do not worry him. If his stomach energy is strong, he becomes reassuring, the counterpart of being anxious.
