The capacity for feeling is of utmost importance.
Feelings are our connection to life; without them we are stale, hollow,
and cut off from true fulfillment. Self-blocking occurs on the feeling level,
not the mental or intellectual level. The feeling level is where we are
most unconscious. People who have achieved self-acceptance have developed
the capacity for feeling deeply, without resistance, whatever is happening
in their inner life. Most of us do not do this but block feelings from entering
consciousness, resulting in emotional imbalance and confusion.
