• Some things in life cause people to feel, these are called emotional reactions. Some things in life cause people to think, these aresometimes called logical or intellectual reactions. Thus life is divided between things that make you feel and things that make you think.
Most importantly, it is to know what a feeling and a thought stand for, one relation between them is Pettinelli’s (2009), he states that Life is divided between feelings and thoughts. Accordingly, there are two different types of reactions in people’s life, ones arewhich make them feel, that are named emotional reactions -feelings; besides which those ones which make them think, that are named logical or intellectual reactions –thoughts. In fact, there are bad and good, or negative and positive feelings and thoughts; their existence depends on the background, the previous experiences, age, culture, education, likes, dislikes, environment, time or mood of theperson who is having them, so they do not always are the same and they vary and change according to those facts, as well as one cannot expect someone feels or thinks in the same way another person does.

So that would mean that all emotions have route in real things, and these real things can be explained with thoughts, so all emotions then are really thoughts that you haven’t realized; an emotion wouldjust be a thought that you haven’t identified yet, so the term “emotion” goes away when you realize it is a thought (because that is what it really was all along, a thought) (though this thought might still be generating a feeling). So, since you perceive the emotion as belonging to you, and you generate thoughts consciously, you consider the emotion to be part of a thought, not vice versa (and...
