Hail the rationals! Die emotions!

"Rational" humans always tend to demean emotions. They take pride in their "superior" ability to seal emotions away when they are reasoning. And I always hear it everywhere that we should not decide in "emotional" state of mind.

So I started observing myself, my "rational" and "emotional" myself. The "observation" is still going on. But I have already discovered something very disturbing on my way:

Each and every thought and action of mine is rooted/directed from an emotion. The so called "rational" actions and thoughts all point back to some emotion! When I am angry and hurl abuses at others I am emotional in the classical way. But while I am reasoning out my steps after getting angry at somebody (like a classical "rational" person),  I discover that I am being driven by the "desire of peace and desire of saving myself from harm".

I always find myself giving "reasons" to my deep seated emotions. Damn the hypocrite human mind! ;)
