Emotions are a continuity that can’t be broken because it’s a register of how one’s awareness impacts one. You may break away from that continuity by relying on the mental grid of the ego that attempts to cast a net of projections and expectations over reality which is really a hit or miss. It’s an attempt at being self-sufficient, i.e divine. And while it may afford one a sense of self-importance and an intellectual bypass of the inherent uncertainty of life, it cuts one off from the animation and rejuvenation of the divine.
The only way to survive in that way is by cutting out the spiritual dimensions that compel one to seek the truth and integrate it through individuation. You have to settle for whatever your mind is capable of handling at any given moment. You never get to progress beyond that preset template that you hold yourself and reality to.
