Fear and anger dominate politics and exacerbate divisions. Emotions are energy that let us know what we value and need. Humans, like all living beings, reach out to meet sustaining needs. "There is power in connecting the energy of our feelings to the urgency of our needs." As different as people are, we all share common universal needs. Understanding emotional intelligence can help us to refrain from being manipulated by those seeking power and to see the humanity in every person.
