The Almost Forgotten Human Language is ‘Feeling’

Forgotten Feeling

We all have read this phrase here and there “Think less Feel more.” However, our lives are so busy these days that we forget to consider the core of our all learned languages, feelings. “Feeling” is now becoming the almost forgotten language. We are caught up in the monotony of survival that there is no time to pause and feel the moment. With the new age of social media, thousands of words and quotes are thrown at us on a daily basis, some of them we even like and share as well; however how many of those quotes actually stick to your mind, and you feel the congruity. Words are losing their meanings because we are losing our feelings.

The Almost Forgotten Human Language is ‘Feeling.’

I recently went to a play rehearsal with my friend. This play was based on daily struggles of working class and their family structures. And, the director of the play who is also an English professor was encouraging the students to mimic the expressions by feeling the character and walking in their shoes. After seeing his struggle in pulling out emotions which he could justify as characters of the play, I must say that he had a tough job in front of him. Actors just like other artists require intense closeness to their emotions.

If you start to feel, you can feel connected with yourself and people around you. It is very easy to be emotionally shut down, and it is also easy to open up. When you are open to experience the happenings with your feelings instead of calculating in your mind, you feel connected with your divine energy. The closer you are to yourself, closer you are to divine energy. Remember energy has no form or structure yet all forms and structures are born from it.

The problem with feelings that you are facing is the lack of emotional balance. Either there is a complete an emotional shut or an emotional mess, and both these situations are equally miserable. Relax your nerves and give thinking a break, start feeling more. It is a simple trick of “let go.” Just like – Inhale and Exhale.

Be excited about life, Pet your curiosity, Get in touch with your emotions.

Give yourself enough time to be in a moment. Since you have not lived this moment before, you will never live this moment again, why not just live and cherish it, entirely. You will feel start feeling alive. Even the old things will start looking refresh with a little twist in perspective. Life is meant to be experienced in a way an organic tone.

Fulfill yourself and Feel Alive

Feel Alive and Fulfill Yourself

For now, I am going to wrap this article with a beautiful quote, “I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.” Joseph Campbell

Have a wonderful weekend! Try to remember the Almost Forgotten Human Language –  ‘Feeling.’ Love and Sunshine. Keep Feeling Buddhaful.

    Thank you tremendously for this article . It’s as if nature sent your post to me today. The core content of it resonates completely with me as I face life changes decisions at the moment of letting go some parts of my past and focusing on the future. I think it is necessary even though the moment seems unbearable and just when I was about to lose my sanity due to denial and fear I received.

    First off, thank you so much for this article. It is a confirmation for me also that I am doing the right thing.I am currently going through a major life change. And while I welcome it, there are many fearful moments involved in that process. What has helped me through it is essentially the same thing you are saying. Face the fear. The fear has come up because there is an underlying message. This could be a sense of worthlessness, not feeling loved, not being good enough, etc. So really, it’s an opportunity to examine our core beliefs, especially the ones which no longer serve us.

    These are really helpful ideas. It’s great to want to make the anxiety go away for someone, but these reminders help me understand what it’s like for someone with anxiety, and how I can truly help them. Thanks!

    It’s so important to realize you are okay just as you are. Articles like yours help other introverts feel they are not alone with their dislike of partys and loud environments, although it often seems like this. Thank you

    Many thanks for your insightful share. It certainly got me thinking as I recently did exactly what you decided against and had asked myself the same questions as you about the ‘why’ and the ‘who was it for’.
