TRUST OR DO NOT YOUR FEELINGS
Mr. Justin,

When one perceives objects through his senses, something left on his mind would
be some images or impression that store in his memory for some time or longer.
With these images and impression thoughts arise and keep going on as long as they last.

Each and all the senses have their merits and limitation, the same do the
images and impression. Meanwhile, each and every object in the world changes
every time. So, why does one want to trust or to not trust his feelings? He wants to
rely on or he expects something fixed, stable, long-lasting or forever from the things
that always change, right? Trust or not trust is an attitude. It is a product of thought,
isn't it? When one sees and really understands all of these, he no longer makes it
a problem for himself and others.
