Feeling states and body organization are closely intertwined. Your body amplifies your emotions in the same way your stereo amplifier amplifies music. When an emotion arises you subconsciously organize your body to amplify that emotion, and what you actually “feel” is the changed organization. Imagine you’re frightened, for example, and notice yourself contract. Imagine sudden anger, and notice how your body responds. Your feeling experience is an ongoing flow of constantly changing body organization.
