Q. Can you explain the difference between feelings and emotions?
A. Feeling is a way to access information that isn’t accessible to reason. It bypasses the mind. Therefore, feeling is a non-cognitive way of getting information, which registers as an intuitive knowing.
Feeling is the right brain accessing the unknown. It deals with things beyond the five senses and logic. Emotion has as its foundation, desire.
