Should I Stay or Should I Go?
Feel your way into the perfect relationship.
By Mark Sutton
Tantra cultivates one’s own sense of being embodied. When we are living from our heart and body, we are real, we live in the present moment. When we live in the present, we become aware of the nature of our emotions and our feelings. Living from our feelings, as opposed to our emotions, is the key to enabling us to determine the status of our relationships and whether we wish to be in them or not.
To understand this it’s important to understand the difference between feelings and emotions. While the words are often used interchangeably they are distinct. Emotions arise from the unconscious mind and reflect the cumulative events, beliefs or feelings from the past which have not been expressed. Feelings relate purely to the present moment and reflect a state of being, not our mental state.
When we live from emotion, we cloud our ability to trust ourselves and our intuition, we close off and can become confused about our relationships and where we wish to go with them.
When we live from our feelings, we bring clarity, openness and acceptance to our understanding of ourselves and our relationships with others. In Tantra, love is an ever present feeling. Make the choice to go inwards; connect with your heart and body, enable yourself to make a conscious choice about the nature of your relationships simply by truly experiencing and expressing your feelings.
