It is actually fear, the root cause of any negative emotion is fear down to it's core, everything else is just layering.

mhhh what about pride? i don’t see where pride is fear - lets say it’s difficult to reduce all negative emotions to just one. a negative emotion can be very impulsive and i have also experienced people act on negative emotions on pure will. before we could say that though we would need to define what is a negative emotion? only what feel ourselves as negative or also emotions which affects others negatively? although agreeing on it partially but think the loops are multiple.

@remember Pride is higher up than anger on the emotional scale, anger is just below it.
If you reduce every negative emotion a person has to one point, it is the fear of death.
Negative emotion is stemmed from not getting something a person needs for survival, or from a situation that reminds them of an outcome they did not get that they felt was essential for survival.  From there, depending on biological and societal conditioning, that fear will manifest itself differently.

yes pride is higher up on the emotional scale than fear but if fear was the foundation for living i don’t think life would exist at all - don’t confuse theory with what is experiential. i get what you are talking about, but let’s not confuse these two stencils with what is experiencable. that’s one concept i guess: and in the beginning was fear. well yes - if something with anger comes at you, then maybe. but let’s just say fear is not where you are naturally rooted in. so if the first thing you feel before you feel anger or pride or hurt there must be a trauma in you. developmentally the ego starts to exist with an i even though the avatar already existed and with an i comes the will of protection - without fear existing as a concept of course no ego concept would be able to form. let’s say the scale is not in that sense a scale it’s more a template.

in that sense i would also go with hurt - because without hurt there was no fear in the first place, let’s say existence is the root of all emotion. but even will was before fear and that’s one of the foundations for pride.

Impatience.


Understand, then, that it is not because of your righteousness that the LORD, your God, is giving you this good land to possess, for you are a stiff-necked people.
