Really feel a feeling.
How do you do that? Well first you have to be in the right STATE.
There are only two STATES; IN-FORM and OUT-OF-FORM.
This is where energy and spirituality become one. Energy can neither be created or destroyed it just moves from IN-FORM to OUT-OF-FORM and back again.
A quick review:
What is the spiritual meaning of heart?
The heart is the locus of physical and spiritual being, and represents the “central wisdom of feeling as opposed to the head-wisdom of reason” (Cooper, 82). It is compassion and understanding, life-giving and complex. It is a symbol for love. Often known as the seat of emotions, the heart is synonymous with affection.
This distinction is very important; THE HEART IS ALL ABOUT BEING and THE BRAIN IS ALL ABOUT THINKING. This is why we need to quiet the mind in order to Practice Presence in any moment. We need to return to the state before we had our brain which I call PRE-SENSE.
IN-FORM is where I spend most of my time. This is the left hemisphere of my brain. This is where I live from my head; this is about my BRAIN and THINKING. This is what Jesus called the FLESH. I get sensations from my five senses and THINK about them. I analyze, compare, and rationalize. This is a state of separateness; my senses and thinking as one thing and the rest of the physical world as another. In this state I exist separately from all other things. In this state I can only collect IN-FORMation. This is where I just think a feeling.
OUT-OF-FORM is where I quiet my mind in order to Practice Presence in any moment. This is the right hemisphere of my brain. This is where I live from my heart; this is about my HEART and BEING. This is what Jesus called the SPIRIT. This is a state of oneness; where I exist with all ENERGY or SPIRIT. In this state I FEEL all ENERGY or SPIRIT. This is where I really feel a feeling.
Remember a time in your life when you were transported OUT-OF-FORM; when you experienced Rapture, Awe, or Wonder; being totally immersed in something outside of yourself; where time and space did not exist. It could have been a breath-taking sunrise or sunset; where in that moment only you and the sunrise or sunset existed with each other.
