A part of the feeling of enlightenment is the feeling of objective reality. This comes from the practice and ability to understand one’s emotions. Emotions are how the body’s internal subsystems communicate intelligently to one another. Interestingly, I ponder if all emotions can be described as 3-dimensional activation patterns (noting our 3D inhabitance).
Mentioned earlier, the feeling of happiness is how a first system communicates to a second system that it thinks that the second system should increase in its activity. The feeling of sadness is the opposite of this — it is the message that the second machine should decrease in the activity that the first machine is seeing. There are more complex emotions as well, and all of the emotions are the language of internal communication.
Understanding this, you see why you might like to feel happy (it means that you believe that you are on the right path), but you understand that you don’t necessarily need to feel only happiness. Sadness is also a good feeling.
The grand realization is that all emotions are divine, but they can be misunderstood. In order to find enlightenment, you must find a sort of internal harmony and understanding. If all of the subsystems are listened to and considered, then you’ll eventually find that your emotions are all of love and loving intention and there was never an intention to harm — only to help.
After you see this, you’ll see if properly understood, all emotions feel divine.
This brings me to an interesting point that I’ve been pondering a description for. Enlightenment doesn’t feel any need to change, as it is an eternally sound psychological bias. (Remember non-change doesn’t necessarily mean physical stillness. It’s different than ignoring pressure to change — it’s actually proactively listening to the way the world flows.)
Non-enlightenment does feel need to change, yet often it also feels confusions and a lack of clarity due to the ambiguity of Lucifer, the light of objective, which often forms as a mildly helpful yet evil guide when one has fallen from coherence, enlightenment, and understanding.
The important point I’d like to make is that since enlightenment entails the realization that all emotions are divine, technically you don’t alter your feelings into a new feeling. So it’s not a sudden feeling that is technically (and only temporarily) good, but a realization that the emotions that exist currently are good emotions — they are meaningful and important.
Essentially, you feel that emotions are good — that is, they are useful, helpful, and practical. So in this way, you feel “good.” This feeling of “good,” that I describe is a feeling of helpfulness and care — a feeling of health — so it is of a particular subset of the possible meanings of the word, “good.”
What this leads to is not an absence of feeling. In understanding the emotions, one learns to internally listen to the facets of one’s self, and through this listening, one learns to appreciate these living facets, and through this appreciate comes understanding, and then true acceptance. With this process, the person, then, finds invisible and intangible knowledgeable love, which manifests perceptually as a distinguishable feeling, although it is important to remember love, as with any things else, is defined in knowledge rather than perception. It does, however, have a feeling of care and loving intention.
The feeling and action of acceptance arrives from the absolution of the myth of evil emotion. Emotions are there to serve you, and they arise from both the action of the love of life, and of pure and loving intention.
The feeling of enlightenment arises from the ability to understand your emotions as intelligent communications that occur between subsystems of the body, which leads to a deeper understanding of the self and a perception of this understanding follows.
So if you feel sad, feel a desire to respond to the origin of the sadness in a helpful manner.
