Emotion

February 15, 2015 ·
In 1971, a friend of mine told me that he was trying to do away with emotion as it is a waste. He was turning to (or turned) an agnostic from orthodoxy. Then, it appeared to me that he was on a noble path. I remembered this when I saw a Buddhist teaching that 'Feeling as a banal ever recurring reactivity...' The life I lived since 1971 makes me feel (?) that feeling is an essential part of life and that awareness must accommodate feeling and feeling is not an impediment to knowledge so long as we have a clear mind. Buddha was compassion personified and Sankara was an advocate of bhakti. The two great authorities on awareness and knowledge have shown us the way.
