Feelings are just another thought.
– Judy Cohen
A feeling or emotion is here. I find it in my body, and bring attention to it.
I close my eyes and notice the mental image I have of that feeling or emotion. I notice it’s color, shape, texture. I place that image in a frame and put it on the wall, in my mind’s eye. That helps me notice it is really an image. It’s not anything else.
I bring attention to the sensations. What’s here in pure sensations?
In this way, I see that feelings and emotions is really a thought. It’s a label. It’s an image or thought that labels and interprets. It’s not what’s really here.
And it is what’s really here, as a thought, and as a full bodied experience when it’s solidified and held as true.
