Feelings


"OUR LOST FEELINGS

With our feelings and emotions we experience ourselves in this world. They are the driving force, the power, and the motor of our life. Without feelings and emotions we would be like robots, a computer operating a body with the help of electric signals.

It is the feelings and emotions, our likes and dislikes, that give our life meaning, that make us happy or unhappy, fulfilled or dissatisfied and that to a large degree decide our course of action and even our health. Diseases not only make us feel unwell, but negative and suppressed emotions and feelings are a major contributing factor in causing our diseases.

When we are young, we are full of feelings and emotions, we experience them strongly, we are sensitive and react immediately and directly to our social and physical environment. When we are old, our emotions are only a distant memory and even our feelings are greatly diminished, pain is often the only feeling left.

More and more we do act like a robot with compulsive habits and live only in our head, using our body just to carry our brain around. What happened in between, why and how did we lose our feelings and emotions, our sensitivity?

Many scientists at present are so divorced from their feelings and emotions that they actually believe that these originate in the brain, just like a form of thoughts. They come to this conclusion because they do not feel the actual energy of anger in their body or the love in their heart. They just think anger or think love in the brain and act accordingly without really feeling anything or their feelings are only weak and diffuse.

Feelings provide us with the greatest pleasures in life, but also with the greatest suffering. Suffering actually is the key word for our loss of feeling with advancing age. We do not want to suffer, so we intentionally diminish our feelings in order to diminish the amount of emotional pain that we do feel. As an unintended side effect this also reduces the amount of pleasure that we can feel.

Hand in hand with our reduced overall feelings goes also a reduced enjoyment of life, reduced vitality and an increased susceptibility to chronic degenerative diseases. A high price to pay for reducing the suffering that we might feel. In fact, we have exchanged bouts of intense short-term suffering for more low-key long-term suffering."
