FEELINGS: MEANING IN LIFE

Emotion, feelings, come in all sizes, shapes and colors. As I look out across Aransas Bay I see waves breaking into foam. That is on the surface. The bay is moved by the tides which are in turn drawn by the movement of the Gulf Stream.

Quick, superficial emotions, anger, sudden joy, are foam on the surface. The deep, lasting, meaningful feelings are like the deep currents that carry all that is on the surface. Agape love is the most powerful and lasting deep current. It gives rise to the emotions that direct our lives.
