Yuasa, Professor Yasuo - Emotions and health



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

The function of the autonomic nerves is deeply linked to emotion (both positive and negative emotions such as anger, sorrow, hatred, joy, love and peace, that is, pleasure and pain). If the negative emotion is always stressed, a pathological state will result, but on the other hand if the positive emotion is always strengthened, it will nurture more mature psychological traits (that is, the pattern of emotion as a habit of the mind/heart).

(Yuasa in Nagatomo 1992: 68)
