The Positive Emotions

© 2016 - 2017  Systemagic Productions


Dr. Barbara Fredrickson identifies the top 10 positive emotions as Interest, Amusement, Inspiration, Hope, Pride, Serenity, Love, Joy, Awe, and Gratitude.

These emotions improve your physiology; your heart and your immune system as well as your mental health and ability.

Gramercy (from "Grand Merci!") is the Apotheosis

Simple acknowledgement of these positive emotions, as they occur, is genuinely uplifting:

HOPE - The whole range from Hope to Certainty.

Advancement, Advocacy, Aid, Aim, Ambition, Anticipation, Apprehension, Approach, Aspiration, Assumption, Assuredness, Attraction, Belief, Boost, Bright side, Buoyancy, Certainty, Certitude, Comfort, Commission, Conceivability, Confidence, Conjecture, Constancy, Conviction, Dearest wish, Dependence, Desiderata, Desideratum, Desire, Direction, Dream, Drive, Encouragement, Enthusiasm, Envisagement, Expectancy, Expectation, Faith, Faithfulness, Fancy, Forecast, Foreseeability, Fortitude, Future, Gain, Goal, Goodness, Heaven, Helpfulness, Hopefulness, Incentive, Inducement, Inspiration, Intent, Intention, Interdependence, Invigoration, Kindness, Likelihood, Love, Loyalty, Need, Objective, Opportunity, Optimism, Outlook, Paradise, Picture, Plan, Possibility, Possibleness, Potential, Potentiality, Prediction, Presumption, Prevision, Probability, Promise, Prospect, Purpose, Pursuit, Quality, Reinforcement, Reliance, Rosiness, Sanguineness, Sanguinity, Security, Speculation, Succor, Support, Supposition, Sureness, Surety, Thinkableness, Trial, Trust, Upwardness, Utopia, Virtuality, Vision, Want, Whole-spiritedness, Wish, Yen.

The Positive Emotions of 'Interest/Amusement' and 'Pride' can have undesirable egocentric aspects to them.  Similarly 'Awe' can have it's fearsome side. Of exclusive interest are the healthy most positive sides of these words.

"In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich."


Hypothesis: Gramercy is the apogee and destination as well as the path.  This is what God wants us to be because it invites Him in on the love and joy experience, glowing our existence and shining in the sunlight; ready to dance at a moment's notice sore back notwithstanding.


Positivity widens the scope to BIG PICTURE 'Oneness'.

Loving Kindness Meditation

"What, then, are the fruits of love?  The fruits of the spirit; which are kindness, hope, fellowship, love, friendship, patience... that ye manifest them in whatsoever place ye find yourself, and your soul shall grow in grace, in knowledge, in understanding..."

- Edgar Cayce 436-2

The underlined words all relate to other people. The happiest people spend time with friends and family.
