We Are Feeling Creatures

"I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?” - John Lennon


The reality that seems real to each one of us is the one that we have chosen to believe in it. And we believe in it because we receive emotional feedback. It is our feelings that give our experience substance. What we feel is a huge part of our our reward for interacting with our life experience. Whether we receive good or bad feelings, we all require that we feel something back from this life in order to make it the most satisfying to us. If we can’t feel something from our experience then we aren’t having one. We are feeling creatures in this life and we try to follow our best feelings toward our joyful and loving destinies. We make everything real by placing our attention on it, then telling ourselves a message about it, and then we get our emotional feed back. This feeling process informs and directs our path in life.  But we also need our feelings in this way to inspire us to go on and move in ways that delight us in this world. We are always on the hunt for positive emotion! We either want more of what we are getting, or we want something else. We are unique in that we do not merely interact with our environments to feel things, but we can also use our minds to imagine what we want or don’t want. From our imaginations we can generate the same emotional feedback from simply imagining something. This ability allows us to create infinite ways to understand ourselves and our world. I am love. I am joy. I am so very good.
