Thoughts and Feelings

“At every moment of every day, an infinite amount of choices is offered to us. These choices have consequences; every decision made in the past determines our future.” Nathan explained.
“And what makes us opt for one choice as opposed to another?” Nigel asked.
“When we consciously reflect before making a choice, we always try to weigh the consequences it will have. Each of us acts this way in accordance to our understanding of things, an understanding that develops from our past experiences.” Nathan stated.
“In Central Park you talked about the importance of discovering the real source of our thoughts and feelings.” Nigel reflected.
“You remembered my words well. Indeed we have to be aware that we always decide ourselves which feelings we designate to every thought.” Nathan said.
Nigel gave himself a few moments to reflect before asking the following question:
“Isn’t each thought already linked to a particular feeling?”
“That’s often the impression we get, but in reality, we all have the ability to choose which feelings we associate with a thought. The more aware you are of this, the more you will understand things. Your choices will then become more appropriate and your actions will render you happier in the long run.”  Nathan answered.

The Infinite…

Have you ever felt the Infinite?

Defining the Infinite is not an easy task seeing that very nature of thought is to separate all that we perceive in a linear time frame. And yet, we know that Existence lies beyond our concept of time, beyond all theories, and even beyond the mind. An understanding of the Infinite cannot be obtained but by an intuitive manner, through a process in which we perceive no past or future –where we ”sense” only timelessness- a process which permits us to see that Existence is nothing else than what has never been before.
