That sounds awfully close to how Buddhism sees feelings, too :o

Something interesting I just realized is the approach that different religions have towards achieving happiness (granted, I could use more knowledge of many other religions).

Christianity teaches you that through love everything will be solved and peace can be achieved.

Buddhism teaches you that without a proper understanding of yourself, your desires will only cause you ruin and suffering to you and others in the long run.

I like the Buddhist approach because it provides more insight into things, though I can understand the appeal of Christianity through its much more concise and simple message. Of course, simple messages are often easier to misunderstand and apply incorrectly... @[email protected]'
