Rather than start this section by describing human emotions and breaking them down into this and that (which I might add another section for later), let’s go straight to the parent directory of Human Sensations. If I could sum up my existence in one word, I would have to say that word is ‘Awareness’. Being aware in life, even when I’m barely aware, means that I’m being infused by sensations from all over the place.
All day and every day, I take in sensations from an array of influences at every angle of space. Following on, my brain does its best to filter through and balance the infusion, thereby achieving homeostasis so I’m at my best, so I can act efficiently in the world. However, if my mind can’t get this balance, then you’ll find me swinging between a high and a low while being very disorganised with the way that I behave.
The following pages describe my experiences with the two main factors of Top-Level Sensations:
- Fear & Pain
- Pleasure & Spontaneity (Spontaneous Joy)
By observing these experiences I uncover the impact Top-level Sensations have on my life. From pulling me in certain directions, to pushing me away from others, the sensations of fear, pain, and pleasure dictate the direction my life takes each and every day. However, by becoming aware of their impact I have been able to regain control of my life, taking charge of my choices once again.
