There is a difference between a feeling and an emotion.
To me, a feeling is a movement of energy within me that moves me in a certain direction.
Whereas an emotion is the different emotional states that may show up as a result of me stepping out of my comfort zone by following the feeling.
If I feel to do something and decide not to act on the feeling, I feel empty inside.
Nothing is more painful than betraying yourself.
The moment you fully decide to follow the feeling you feel alive and awake.
