Jed Rant: Nothing important... just blah, blah.
« on: April 28, 2017, 02:37:33 am »
How can you resist what is when you don't know what is? You can resist what you think ''is'', but that's rather silly because what you think is is only a thought. Thoughts about some thing are not the thing. Those thoughts are removed from the reality of some thing by a number of layers of memory, interpretation, interests/non-interests, and a few dozen more similar filters. So if you think you resisting anything, you are actually resisting what isn't and not what is. It's all made up by Maya/ego and layer after layer contributes to the apparency, the illusion that it/you are substantial, something of importance. I suggest you contemplate this for a moment or three.

I have discussed this before, but I think some new forum members may have missed it. I'm speaking about the difference between emotions and feelings. This is important, and perhaps I haven't explained it yet. Feelings are something you can experience in your little finger... pressure, hot/cold, tingling, burning, etc. Of course they may be experienced in other parts of your apparent body as well.

Emotions are totally different. They are the conversations in your head about the feelings in your body. Feelings tend to be more truthish (if you burn your finger you get immediate info on that and it will probably be pretty accurate) and emotions lie, but only always... how could a made up conversation not lie...  it's made up!

Feelings and emotions work in a kind of cycle, back and forth, with a tendency to reinforce each other. Butterflies in your stomach are a feeling. The conversation in you head about that speech you are going to have to make is an emotion, perhaps fear or excitement. Got it?

Have a look at your experiences in light of this distinction and I thing you might find an interesting take-away. If it's not for you, then you might enjoy one of my mentors.

Hi Jed,

My body relaxes when I listen to BB King sing about it...and my mind has nothing to say because it is focused on the rhythm. When I read your words and don't give them a thought, in that moment of non thought I see how it all works together to keep the illusion in place.

Good work my  dear... just stick with it, aware, breathing and letting it all be as it ''appears'' to be. But never believe what you see or me. Find out for  yourself and your Self.

Love ya, Jed.

This was a good refresher about feelings and emotions, thanks. I knew it but had forgotten it.
