Metaphysical meaning of feeling (rw)
feeling--Feeling is external to thought; behind every feeling or emotion there lies thought, which is its direct cause. To erase a feeling, a change of thought is required.
Metaphysical teachings pretty much agree that feelings and emotions are mostly subjective. They are generated by thoughts. They follow the trend of our thinking and, with sufficient practice, they can be brought under control by right thinking. In Bible symbolism the male (thought) appears first. Female (feeling) is called a "help mate" to thought. This is not to say that feelings and emotions are not vitally important to a human being. They are. ("And God said, it is not good that man (thought) should be alone. I will make a help mate (feeling) for him.") (Gen. 2:18) We are wise to always try to maintain some conscious control over feelings and emotions within ourselves. Right thinking is the safe way.
