Someone here Posted July 17, 2022 Share Posted July 17, 2022 (edited) When you have a choice between saving 3 people you know or 5 you don't, do you use your feelings for guidance? When you have to choose a course to study at Uni, do you choose what you are best at, or what you like the most? When choosing someone to be with for life, do you pick them for material values or for the feeling you get when they are with you? I probably think that because feelings are very complex.. our fight or flight can be mistaken for feelings, but I call them false feelings. They are misguiding and lead us further down the rabbit hole. True, unbiased feelings can only be felt in a very calm and peaceful state of mind, that is when feelings become most helpful. Intuition is a feeling, and it is one that I trust the most, negative feelings are a fog that make it impossible to make a reasonable decision with good results. But your feelings and “false feelings” are the reason you are alive today, without them you would wonder into traffic without concern, or indulge in extremely reckless behavior. They guide you through life and there is nothing you can do to escape that. All you can do is be the master of how you feel, and have the willpower to understand those feelings, question them, and try to change them into something else. If you have a bad feeling about someone you meet do you really want to hang out with that person or try and be their friend? Not likely, but our feelings are here to help us, even though it seems the opposite. Control is something we must take, not give. What would you be without feelings like fright, happiness, nostalgia, anger, love, hate,..? You’d be cold as hell. Some times you can hide, stop a feeling. At other times it is overwhelming, and you have to do something. @Phil is my understanding of this topic on the money ?
