Tracks 1 and 2: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on Psychologist Abraham Maslow's quotes, "Colin Wilson (159), in his book, Introduction to the New Existentialism, pointed out that life has to have meaning, has to be filled with moments of high intensity that validate life and make it worthwhile. Otherwise the desire to die makes sense, for who would want to endure endless pain or endless boredom?" From The Farther Reaches of Human Nature, by Abraham Maslow, page 180, 2nd paragraph.

Track 2: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on The Old Man of the Holy Mountain written by Mark Zimmerman.

"A young man questioned the old man. And he said, "Happiness seems to have escaped me. Is it true happiness exists in others?"

The old man answered him saying, "Happiness comes from within. And if you cannot find happiness within yourself, it will hinder you from finding happiness within others."

A young woman spoke sincerely with an open mind and an honest heart. And she said, "How may I come upon happiness within myself?"

The old man answered, "I know you have been within the bounds of happiness, yet you know it not. And you have seen her blessed ocean shores, and smelled her sweet orchid fragrance. Though unhappiness veils pleasure from your hearts. I believe if you were to understand yourself and others, you would find happiness within you."

Track 2: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on Psychologist Abraham Maslow's quotes, "One of the goals of education should be to teach that life is precious. If there were no joy in life, it would not be worth living." From The Farther Reaches of Human Nature, by Abraham Maslow, page 180, 2nd paragraph.

Tracks 3 and 4: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on Psychologist Abraham Maslow's quotes, "We must make a new vocabulary for all these untilled, these unworked problems. This 'cognition of being' means really the cognition that Plato and Socrates were talking about; almost, you could say, a technology of happiness, of pure excellence, pure truth, pure goodness, and so on. Well, why not a technology of joy, of happiness?" From The Farther Reaches of Human Nature, by Abraham Maslow, page 169, last paragraph.

Track 3: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on Psychologist Claude Steiner's quotes from Learning Emotional Literacy, A New Language of the Emotions:

"Learning Emotional Literacy is like learning a new language. With the emotionally literate language a different tone of voice is used. Words are combined into strange sounding sentences, and a number of 'neologisms' are used in order to communicate the desired emotional content."

"With emotionally literate expressions, they often make no sense to the listener. Who might conclude that what is being said is nonsense."

"The language of the emotions is required for the development of the higher levels of Emotional Literacy. The language elaborately deals with the exchange of strokes, with the identification of our and other peoples' emotions, and the clarification of their causes. This language is foreign to the average person. Who will have to learn it in order to develop Emotional Literacy in their lives."

Track 5: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on Singer/Songwriter Tracy Chapman's quotes from the song titled, New Beginning from her New Beginning CD:

"The whole world's broke
and it ain't worth fixing.

"It's time to start all over,
make a new beginning.

"There's too much fighting -
too little understanding.

"It's time to stop and start all over.
Make a new beginning.

"...We need to make new symbols.
Make new signs.

"Make a new language.
With these we'll redefine the world."

Track 6: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on Psychologist Abraham Maslow's quotes, "All of life is education and everybody is a teacher and everybody is forever a pupil." From Motivation and Personality, by Abraham Maslow, page 253, 7th paragraph.

Track 6: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on The Old Man of the Holy Mountain written by Mark Zimmerman:

"And the humble man questioned the Old Man saying, 'I have heard many things concerning your teaching. Yet they say that you proclaim yourself not to be a teacher. What is the meaning of this saying?'

"The Old Man stood near, yet he seemed distant. And he said, 'I do not teach others, because I cannot teach others. I may only teach myself.

" 'And everyone teaches their own self all that they learn.

" 'We choose that which we desire to know.

" 'And if you desire to know yourself, you must become your own teacher, and be your own disciple, and learn about yourself.' " From The Old Man of the Holy Mountain, by Mark Zimmerman, Chapter 17, I Cannot Teach Others.
