Do you ever feel the undertow of Feelings ?
There is an over-riding, visible, in-the-face Feeling. This may seem to be the driving force behind every thought and deed. Yet, if one observes, and dives into the feeling one feels the undertow, the actual, much deeper layer of Feeling, that gives the actual direction. It is the undertow that slowly and gradually pulls in the energy of everything surrounding.
It is the undertow that is inexorable. That defines the final, inner, person. Everything else are just layers to be stripped.
