Worlds of experience within which we dwell as a variety of 'selfs' are discussed in light of Buddhist teachings and contemporary cognitive perspectives. Insight into the suffering and non-self nature of unwholesome mind-states transforms our relationship to those worlds.
Feelings are the first conditioned reference we offer the moment. Through our feelings we are prepared to turn away, ignore, or grasp the experience at hand. Feelings set up our attitudes, personal story, and character to carry us forward in a predisposed way.
