Subliminal feelings

All of us, at some time or another, have a feeling that comes from somewhere or another, who knows where or how. We may feel that someone is staring at us from behind, we may get the sense that that person we’ve just met is really creepy, or we may feel a sense of joy in a place we’ve just been introduced to. Many times we won’t even take note of these feelings, just shove aside or to the backs of our minds. Occasionally we find that, though we felt a certain way about something, it actually turned out to be incorrect, as when we take a quick dislike to a person who doesn’t look like us. Most of the time we should take note of these feelings and act upon them in a way that keeps us safe or lets us enjoy the situation to the utmost. We should at least take note of, and explore the feelings we really feel inside before taking any action that commits us to a specific course of action. For who knows what relationships or desirable places or foods we might miss out on by ignoring subliminal feeling. Or what dangerous places or people to get away from by ignoring subliminal feelings. Wouldn’t trusting our subliminal feelings be more effective for interpreting feelings than ignoring them.

I've been struck many times by the thoughts that run through my head when I'm outdoors and contemplating nothing in particular. The thoughts can be profound or silly, sad or joyful, relevant or not. But they're always there. And with just a bit of concentration they can lead to the most astonishing places and on the most convoluted trails. Exploring those vagaries and jigs and jogs is fun. I'm attempting to find more of these trails to see if they lead anywhere or nowhere, because even nowhere is somewhere. The bits and pieces of the outdoors help to make the indoors survivable. Photos help bring the outdoors in and remind me of many of the thoughts I had while still outside, a very valuable tool they are, too.
