Thanks for the educational imput.  Though; what I wrote didn't come from any 
educational reading.  It came out of myself  direct experience, observations 
and insight while practicing.  If I wrote in theory is because I don't always 
make in time to stop and I get pushed by the habit energy of my own emotions.  
I try to be as sincere, honest and accurate as I can while talking about zen 
and similars.  I wouldn't like to have one of those unpredectible tantrum 
tempers and then everyone thinkinkg that such of such saying was not real for I 
don't always make in time to stop and get carried away by the emotion.

Mayka, depending on which Buddhist path: Hinayana, Mahayana, Vajrayana, 
Mahamudra, Dzogchen, etc. that one is traversing, emotions are dealt with 

"This also illustrates one of the typical aspects of tantra: rather than 
repressing negative emotions like attachment, they are transformed into 
positive energy. 
But using this transformation principle has two sides: it is not only a very 
effective means of making mental changes, but if they are done without proper 
guidance of a qualified teacher, the practitioner can easily increase negative 
emotions rather than reducing them. 
So very powerful psychological techniques like tantra need to be treated with 
much care and consideration to avoid disastrous results for the practitioner."
