A Feeling

03/28/2015

A feeling is a unified phenomenon that cannot be reduced to anything less than itself.

But it is not that it simply is, unchanging.

If we do not name it, if we do not separate from it –  grasping after or rejecting our picture of it – the feeling has its own life of transformation, its own flow.

A feeling of pain, is it really static, or does it increase and decrease in intensity? Doesn’t it undulate, doesn’t it sometimes change in character?

Is it a thing? Or isn’t it in fact a centering of flowing processes?

Just like you. And just like you, it is nameless. 

And this particular unified centering of processes, inflects and is inflected by a multitude of other aspects, even as it comes to the fore, on its occasion, as you.
