We are talking about mind/mochin and midot/emotions, where they both relate to a reality. They relate to the reality differently.
Emotions are affected by the reality ‘in their own place’ - they have ‘excitement’ about something that is external to themselves.
Mochin/mind by contrast means that you personally relate - and for this degree of recognition you have to ‘get into it’.
