Please note that the text below was written by the feeling-being ‘Peter’ while ‘he’ lived in a pragmatic
(methodological), still-in-control/same-way-of-being Virtual Freedom before becoming actually free.
Affection: an emotion, a feeling: like, goodwill, kindly feeling,
love, a passion, lust. esp. feeling as opp. to reason. A mental state; an emotion, a feeling. Feeling as opp. to reason; passion, lust.
Goodwill, kindly feeling, love. a moderate feeling or emotion, the feeling aspect (as in pleasure) of consciousness. Oxford Dictionary
Peter: The feelings include both the affectionate and desirable
emotions/passions (those that are loving and trusting) and the hostile and invidious emotions/passions (those that are hateful and fearful).
Those attempting to live by the moral codes of either the ‘real’ world or ‘spiritual’ world are admonished to give full reign to the
good feelings while repressing, denying, or watching the ‘bad’ ones. As such, the feeling of affection is but a counterpoint for the
underlying feelings of fear and aggression and consequently often proves to be a very capricious and transitory feeling.
Affection is but a fickle feeling that most mimics the genuine intimacy and well-wishing nature
evidenced when the instinctual emotions and passions are eliminated in human beings. Given that the very nature of the actual universe is both
pure and benevolent, these same qualities are then automatically and spontaneously the qualities of one who lives in Actual Freedom.
