A million theories continue to take shape inside my head. I try my best to transmute as many of them, with as much detail as possible, into posts. Anyways by writing the posts, I have learned (another theory) that words are never enough to transmute what is in my head into somebody else’s head exactly as I see it, feel it, and understand it. Nevertheless, words still are an extremely efficient tool in our attempt to transmit elements from our minds to the minds of others.
Now, the theory which I will try to transmit into the mind of whoever is reading this, is my theory of the mind shaping our emotions.
Unlike the theories and concepts, which I express through the posts, feelings and emotions are not so easy to express in words. We can easily label a certain feeling or emotion with a name, but it is quite hard to define the feeling or emotion in words.
Because of this (I believe) truth we many times find ourselves telling somebody else that they need to experience a thing so that they can truly understand the feeling or emotion which is caused by it. Or we run into somebody telling us that we have to go through or experience a certain event in order for us to truly grasp and understand the feeling or emotion.
The explaining of this powerful phenomena is made even more difficult when we consider the possibility of all of us feeling one specific feeling or emotion in an extremely different way. For example, if one person says I feel happy and another person says they feel happy too, it does not mean that they are both experiencing the same exact feeling in their bodies and minds.
As a matter of fact, I believe that no two people (dead or alive) on this planet can experience any feeling or emotion in exactly the same way, ever. I believe that we have simply created many labels for emotions which have some similarities in the ways all of us experience them.
The feeling and emotion for being happy is shaped by my mind in a completely different way than it is shaped by the mind of another person. There is some pleasant similarities in the feeling and emotion for all of us, but your feeling, just like my feeling, is something that no one else in the entire universe could ever experience in the way you or I do. It is like your fingerprint.
But it gets even more interesting. I believe that part of human growth, implies that we continue to give a different shape to the form of any unique feeling or emotion we ever experience. Thus, my feeling and emotion for happiness tomorrow will be slightly different than my feeling and emotion for happiness today.
I believe that the changes happen as we continue to develop our minds and fill it with more knowledge, insight, understanding, experiences, memories, beliefs, philosophies, concepts, etc.
When there is a significant change in the mind and way of thinking, then there is also a significant change in the shape of our feelings and emotions. And in the same way, a slight change in the mind brings a slight change to the shape of feelings and emotions.
It would be good to clarify, that I use the feeling and emotion of happiness only as an example, but this theory and all of this concepts apply to every single one of the infinite number of feelings and emotions we could ever experience, whether they are good, bad, or neutral.
To clarify the contrast in the shape of our own feelings overtime, consider the shape of your feeling and emotion for fear or anger or excitement when you were 15 or 16 years old ( if you are 15 or 16 right now, I’m sorry for the example. And I’m extremely impressed you’re interested in reading this stuff), compare that shape with the shape of that specific feeling and emotion for you today. It should be extremely different. This proves that it has changed over time.
So, my theory, claims that a specific feeling or emotion is not only unique to the person who is feeling it but it is also unique to the time in which it is happening. So that would mean that you could experience a certain feeling or emotion only once in your entire life.
By the time you get to feel the “same” feeling or emotion you felt before, its shape will already be altered. It might feel with exactly the same shape when analyzed from one day to the other because the change was so small that only a super aware or super conscious mind would be able to notice the very slight difference in the shape of the feeling or emotion.
Now, whenever you have one of those days in which your mind is significantly illuminated, one of those days in which you open a whole new world in your mind, one of those days where you’re impacted in such a way that you could never forget, is a great time to easily pick up and notice how the significant change in the mind perfectly correlates with a significant change in the shape of many of your feelings and emotions.
God has given us absolute control over our minds, which means that if we truly focus and achieve a high level of understanding on this matter, then we can very easily influence the shape of our feelings and emotions. And the way our feelings and emotions are shaped is one of the most important factors in how we experience our universe.
