Imagine in this moment being completely in touch with your physical sensations, aware of who you are and your connection to all your surroundings, and conscious of the wisdom of your deepest emotions. Why isn’t this our natural experience all the time? Raphael Cushnir, the author of The One Thing Holding You Back, teaches that we have learned to suppress our emotions, especially the difficult ones—and in doing so, we cut ourselves off from the full experience of being alive. In this week’s episode, selected by Sounds True producer Randy Roark, Raphael explains what our emotions are and why we must be open to what they have to teach us in order to live a life of true balance, creativity, and connection.
