How Do You Feel?
It takes a lot of thinking to feel emotional about something. Even the simplest emotion, such as the startle reaction, requires knowing what you’re seeing...
You don’t really remember any “thing,” you build memories on demand to represent experiences you’ve stored away in some coded form. You may think you remember a red car on a dirt road or a friend’s face on a summer evening, but you really don’t...
Here is the crux of the matter: there is much that you are missing. There is much more that you could feel. How do you feel? By exploring the depth and breadth of your emotional repertoire. Can you expand your emotional repertoire? Yes, you can.
“You need to become fully conscious of your emotions and be able to feel them before you can feel that which lies beyond them.”
― Eckhart Tolle
