Dadashri: People would die. Similarly, when a person becomes emotional, innumerable organisms die within that person's body. He becomes responsible for it. There are many such responsibilities that arise when one becomes emotional in this manner.

Questioner: Without emotion, would a person not become like a rock?

Dadashri: I am 'emotionless'; do I look like a rock? I do not have any 'emotions' at all. One with 'emotions' (above and below normal) becomes 'mechanical' (the non-Self) but one who is 'in motion' (normality) will not become 'mechanical' (remains as the Self).

Questioner: But if a person, who has not attained Self realization, were to be without 'emotions', would he not appear like a rock?
