We all have feelings. We feel happy, content, peaceful, angry, sad, depressed, bored, lonely, anxious, etc.
What is a feeling, really? Most of us accept feelings as part of our essential nature, but is this our actual experience?
All feelings are temporary, coming and going in the empty, open field of awareness, the source of our being. Rather than name these feelings as good, bad, or neutral, and reacting to them in some way, don’t name them at all.
Go through a day without naming or labeling any of your so-called ‘feelings’ and see what happens.
If you do this, go through a day just experiencing feelings, observing them as they come and go without naming them, you will find that what you considered a previously uncomfortable feeling is nothing more than a temporary appearance in awareness that does not affect the unchanging, knowing presence of awareness itself.
And you are this awareness. You are that. All feelings come and go in you, awareness, but you do not come and go with them. Things happen in you, not to you.
