I'm confused one what you're asking because if we're gaining pleasure from our feelings it still must have been a result of some thought or action, right?
Of course feelings come from something, either a thought or action.
But what I am asking is,
1) Do you gain more pleasure from feelings (even if they originate from thoughts or actions).
2) Do you gain more pleasure from just the raw thoughts? Or other thoughts, intellectual pursuits, like chess, astrology, math, forming a theory, etc...
I'm not sure how else to word it.
