I constantly heard people using the news to make conversation sharing the concerns, worries and fear. The conversation continued from one tragedy to another connecting all the unfortunate things happening around the world. People start to believe life is full of sorrow and despair as they have the evidence from the news. We all are feeling different kinds of emotions. The feeling is real. I call it a state of feeling. The ability to feel is part of the human experiences. Feeling is a way of living. Without feeling we don’t know we are alive, how to make choices and move on to a better place. Right feeling is the first action of the right thought. With the right thought, we take the right action. However, we have to train our mind sitting with emotions skillfully especially the negative emotions – sadness, worry, fear, detachment, despair, hopelessness etc. With our trained mind, we see how we make up our imaginable drama; and yet see others’ before we become involved in it. The more we practice, the more we embrace feelings and choose the joy of it than be trapped by it. Life is so good to us. Let the flow of life flow like a stream of river; we drift along with it. Allowing the feelings to come as guidance; we embrace it and be with it. May all beings be free and have the joy of smelling the fragrance of emotions. We are so loved, so happy and so healthy. Thank you for your wisdom, Universe.
