We need to listen to our own feelings and emotions. How we feel is neither good or bad - it just is. When we take time to acknowledge how we feel - we get some insight into what is going on with us right now. Are we sad, mad, happy, joyous or numb? What's causing it? What do I feel like doing? These questions allow us to step back and make smart choices with what to do with our feelings. We can make better choices when we know what is going on within us. Our feelings give us great insights - if we pay attention to them. To be a mystic means to be aware of all that is around us and within us - and to see how it is sacred because of the Maker. Our emotions and feelings help us tremendously in doing that.
