Sometimes we don't quite trust our feeling nature. We say to ourselves, "Look what my feelings have gotten me into." Someone once said, "Love is a many splintered thing." At times our deepest feelings seem to lead us on a bumpy path. We think: if only we weren't so involved with our emotions, how easy and simple this life would be. But our feelings also give us joy and happiness and a sense of fulfillment. There are the tears of gratitude we have shed for all the good this life has given us. Let's not deny our feelings, but, rather, let our emotions expand to feel the wholeness of this life.
