Feeling Value


People do not directly feel the value and importance to others ... they only feel the value and importance to their selves.  Some people can, however, imply that others feel value and importance ... and knowing that implication can vicariously feel that value themselves.  That is called "empathy". 

I think few people actually realize that any value to themselves they actually feel directly is usually not the same value that sombody else feels.  Me thinks, this is a grand source of confusion for interpersonal relationships.

The take away meme here is:  you can only feel your own being. 

perhaps a better way to say that:  you can only feel what you are be ing.

perhaps an even bettr way to say that:  you can only feel what you are feeling.

... er, not what somebody else is feeling.   you do not feel otherness.  you cannot.

That is why the golden rule is necessary.
