Emotions and curiosity

There is a saying that one cannot be curious and angry at the same time.

It’s not restricted to anger. Whenever there is an emotion, it distracts us from curiosity.

That’s because emotions attract our immediate attention. It’s what they are there for.

They want us to be attentive to what they point us to.

But, whenever that call for attention leads to being attached to feeling or not feeling the emotion, there is no space left for curiosity. That’s when the emotion takes over and becomes the subject of our attention.
