Human emotion… A complexity that can be just as paradoxical as the universe itself. Though, this emotion is truly part of all existence. It comes to us through a passageway that we cannot see, but only feel. Our senses absorb this energy. It then becomes tangible within us. It is this that allows us to feel life. It is our feeling that compels us to go forward, or to stand still.

We feel the surge of this emotion. Whether this is sadness, anger, fear, joy or bliss. We notice these tides of life flowing through us, this undercurrent of emotion, thought and feeling. This sphere is one to pay close attention to. We must confront our feelings, know them, and abide their calls. Without feeling, life is mute.

Living without attentiveness to feeling seems to be a new trend in this time. Too often we’re “busy” with life, yet more often we’re not living life.. only regarding our busyness as progress. We disregard feeling and emotion in the way of what we deem as logical thoughts or explanations. We dismiss the call of the heart, the intuition of the soul and the voice of the universe. This voice is muffled by our busy lives, but it cannot be snuffed out completely. It exists only to be heard, felt and spoken.

Our own soul begs us to listen, to stop and be still for a moment and find a place of memory. It begs us to remember; to remember the tide of emotion, as we felt it as a child. This was new; a feeling that spoke with a loud voice.. we listened to it with intent and learned from feelings, from the sensations amplified by the heart. We must find this innocence of life once again.

Be still in your life for a moment. Stop being so busy. This busyness is only a distraction from true life and raw emotion; a distraction from the true self calling from within. Our lives will remain incomplete without a fullness of self, and without the acceptance of feeling. This sphere combines all feeling, all that can be felt is found within.

We live in the time of the Emoji; this tiny emoticon that is used nearly everywhere. Of the many faces that we can send to others, or pin on a digital wall.. the true face of life still remains hidden behind our falsehood. We cannot replace emotion with marks, we cannot describe the constant evolution of the present moment with a simple token. It is as alive as we, as the Earth and as the green lands through which we travel. We must make the pilgrimage; the trek to our heart. In this we will reclaim our self, and dawn our true emoji.

Visit your emotions. Do not let them idle outside in the cold. Simply breathe, surround yourself with the present moment and feel what you’ve been shunning. This is the key to the door to life; to the voice of the righteous and to the touch of the divine. Opening this door will bring truth; truth of life and knowledge of soul.

  1. it seems we have also lost real communicating…and maybe that’s why our real emotions are leaving us…I, myself prefer real words face to face …real phone calls …and real handwritten notes…and a real photo of the person I’m reading and talking to on my blogging… Great reminder to all of us…Thanks!

    1. I know exactly what you mean! We should strive to keep our true connections in place, despite all of this “technology.” All the best to you. 🙂

    1. It is easy to forget how removed we can become from life with all of our “distractions.” Such a good practice to meditate on this subject. Glad you enjoyed it! Namaste
