The Psychological-Emotional Shell
Our third shell is Manomayakosha the sheath of emotions. All of us as individuals are comprised of different feelings. Each of our emotional complexes are unique, therefore emotions are an illusion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When things happen in our lives we all have the potential to react differently. The emotion that the same image, movie, an event, or thought creates is different for different people.
We all experience emotions such as happiness, sadness, jealousy, anger, or excitement but when, why and how intensely we feel these emotions is unique to each person and situation. You may be surprised by how unemotional someone can be towards something the you deeply care about. Vice-versa, you may care very little about something which holds great meaning to another person.
If emotions are so easily influenced why do we put so much stock in them? So often we identify ourselves with the our emotions, but who we really are - the Self or Light which resides in each of us - is absolute; it never changes. Therefore, the ever-changing nature of our emotions means that we are in fact not our emotions. They are yet another illusion or sheath covering up what is real.
