Emotions are expressions of the soul which resides in the unconscious. This is stuff of God.
Feelings are expressions of the heart.
Thoughts are expressions of the mind.
Both feelings and thoughts are of the flesh and are influenced by the world, which influences the ego.
The purest information coming from within us (versus from without us as might happen in The Holy Spirit coming into us and informing us) is therefore emotion.
How do we access this? How do we know we are dealing with raw, pure emotion versus tampered-with thoughts and feelings?
