“Behavior on your planet is very emotional in nature. You often take action from a very emotional place, and you infuse those actions with the energy of the emotions that spur the actions on. It is part of your journey to exercise your right and your freedom to act according to your values and to give your emotions the proper attention that they are calling for from you.
So if you take an action because you are afraid, then the action is designed to alleviate the fear. Or if you act out of anger, then perhaps you are seeking to get even. And by getting even, the assumption is, you will feel less angry.
It is far more beneficial to all of you to feel the emotion and to take your actions from a place of feeling free. When you are driven by an emotion and the emotion is fueling the action, then you are not really choosing your actions based upon who and what you are. You are taking action as a reaction to an emotional state.
And this often leads you back to an experience of that emotion. And so eventually you find that the actions you are taking are futile, as long as you are taking them in order to cover up or avoid an emotional state.
Our species saw this in each other, and we decided that the best way for us to eliminate that sort of futile action was to become unemotional. But no matter how you try to avoid emotion, it always comes back and you always must face it. We give you our perspective on this because we have seen how destructive it can be to avoid the emotional state, whether it be through thought or action.
We are the Zetas, and we are your brothers and sisters.”
