I am enjoying this reading. The concept of feelings and thinking being intertwined in some ay is helpful. Sometimes we try to isolate the two – but it is seemingly related to biblical thoughts on faith and works. You have to see them both for their own values, but they are, in many ways, insepearable. Just having feelings doesn’t make it work well. We need to understand the cause and effect of those feelings. “in the same vein, we cannot work with just the thinking process or we miss the deep connection of caring about and with others. Just some thoughts about how this makes me feel!
