Emotions are not an essential part of us, but are like an extra layer.

It is similar to how dirt on a mirror is never part of the mirror. Moreover, emotions are simply the display of our ignorance. We can manage our emotions by first being mindful of them, and then secondly whenever emotions arise we should immediately apply an antidote, and finally we should never nurture negative emotions. Through not dealing with our emotions we ruin our beautiful lives. Although as ordinary people we cannot completely eliminate our negative emotions we can avoid their ill effects by being watchful of our actions.
