To use the awareness which lies in feelings to live an alternative way we need to become very intimate with our creative spirit. We need to become very aware of what we feel in life, about life and what we have experienced in life. We need to rely on our creative spirit being fully present in our life.

However, our creative spirit is vulnerable and easily hurt. In many ways it is the most sensitive part of our being. In having our creative spirit being fully present we become aware of both how our creative spirit is thwarted, and has been thwarted, in life and how the creative spirit of others is thwarted from fully and freely expressing themselves. This in turn leads to a greater awareness of pain in ourselves, in others, and the world. Exactly what we feel and how we feel it is unique to our being. But, there will be an increased awareness of, and sensitivity to, pain. Much of the pain we experience will not be our personal pain but the pain around us. Yet, there is a gift in pain. If we learn how to use the pain we experience. The key to using the awareness which lies in feelings is to become aware of how to use the pain we feel and experience in life.

Analogously, in many ways, using the awareness which lies in feelings is like using nuclear energy. Nuclear energy is one of the greatest concentrations of energy we have available to use. It is the energy which fuels our sun and the stars. There is tremendous power available to us if we learn how to use it. Nuclear energy can be used in a constructive way such as to make electricity or destructive ways to build bombs. It also can be used in a relatively clean way as in the fusion process or a rather dirty way as in the fission process which yields long term radioactive waste which will take thousands of years to fully decay away.

Using the awareness which lies in feeling is to learn to use the most power source of creative life energy we have available to us in the cleanest way. What we do not understand is that we will always feel. We cannot not feel. We will always sense the flows of energy of creation/Creation. Even if we lose the physical pain receptors of our body we can still feel pain that is of nonphysical origins. The question is, Are open to feeling or do we raise the threshold of what we feel so as to not experience pain? Most of us at the earliest age learn to raise the threshold so as to not feel pain until it has an intensity that we cannot avoid. Others seek to numb the pain they feel in some way or spend their life trying to avoid it. Still other develop addictions of one form or another, including thinking as an addiction, so as to not feel.

The consequences of not being open to what we feel and learning how to use the pain we experience is to use the most powerful energy source available to us in a relative dirty, if not the dirtiest, way nonconsciously. In not being open to what we feel or trying to avoid and facing certain types and kinds of feeling we create conditions which have enormous long term consequences. Many of the consequences we create takes years, if not lifetimes (yes, lifetimes), to dissipate the energy we bind in acting the way we do. Whether we realize it or not, analogously, most of have been living life creating nuclear weapons and routinely setting them off in our life at some level of our being - spiritually, mentally, emotionally or physically, and then wonder why we have the problems that we do.

Awakening to the awareness which lies in feelings simply allows us to take conscious control over many things which we now do nonconsciously. In doing so, we can create a life which better serves us and to create a life worth living.

Unfortunately, the truth of what is said here cannot be seen unless we open ourselves to what we feel and become aware of how much feeling we have learned to suppress and/or otherwise avoid. Then, in the awareness of feeling, we see what life really has to offer. We can come to see that Nirvana, Heaven, the Kingdom of God, and the like are fully present here and now. There is no need to transcend physical life or transcend the body. There is no need to die to experiences such states of being. We simply need to become aware of who and what we really are - creators of our experiences and the reality we experience - and create a life that serves us and is a life worth living.

What needs to be clearly understood is using the awareness which lies in what we feel we can, and will, create an alternative way to live life that is much more fulfilling and enjoyable. However, we will need to face the issue of the pain we feel in and about life and learn to understand and use the gift that lies in pain.
