     Last time we looked at the emotional hole that each of us is carrying around inside and how we chase fears and anxieties about things that do not exist in an effort to fill up this holeIn this episode, we will look at how do we take apart this emotional hole?  The key is understanding how the different virtues counteract their opposite vices- how generosity counters greed, self control counters gluttony and self confidence counters sloth or spiritual sadness.  The delusional thinking that underlies these and other vices comes from this emotional hole we have within us. In learning to practice the virtues we free up emotional energy that has been wasted on the delusional thinking behind the vices.  And we will not fall victime so easily to the fear mongers and hate mongers who try to manipulate us thorugh our emotional holes.

     In the next episode we will start in a new direction on a different topic.
