Re: Re: Emotions & Truth
- To go back to the beginning of this conversation: I wondered aloud if SOME
of the attitudes towards the unborn and abortions weren't being caused more
by emotion than the observations of spiritual science. Now that we've been
around the barn and back, I continue to wonder that.
I understand what you say, Elaine, but I think you can also understand that
emotions, and feelings, can obscure the truth. I don't have Steiner's
capabilities, and I know there are times when I convince myself that what I
would like is what is best for the world.
I was the first one to use the word "compassion," which was one of the
reasons for defining it when what I had meant was clearly not being conveyed
by my words.
