Meditation on Feeling

We prioritize and live by our feelings more than anything else.

We cling to positive feelings and strive to escape from the negative ones.

However, feelings are constantly changing, regardless of our intentions.

Believing that one can control the natural fluctuations of feelings according to personal preferences is a foolish attitude.

We need to accept feelings as they are.

I want to highlight the feeling that’s neither particularly good nor bad.

We often attempt to categorize this feeling with blurred boundaries between good and bad, seeking a definitive judgment.

This approach inclines towards interpreting initially neutral feelings as ultimately negative.

Even in such cases, a general approach to feelings is required.

By quietly observing and accepting feelings just as they are, we can prevent the unnecessary creation of distress.
