I Feel, Therefore, I Think I Am (Sentio Cogito Ergo Sum)

Two poems changed my life: The More Loving One, by W.H. Auden, and Since Feeling is First (SFIF), by ee cummings.

SFIF fits 'Sentio Cogito Ergo Sum' perfectly; it feeds & leads my consciousness accordingly.

"Cogito ergo sum, "I think, therefore, I am" penned by René Descartes, doesn't go far enough. Closer to the truth is: 'dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum' ("I doubt, therefore I think, therefore I am" - Antoine Léonard Thomas).

Doubt is only 50% closer to the truth at best, because doubt CAN come from intuition, but it can come from fear, too. Fear & Intuition are both feelings, but one is based on illusion and the other, from the Interior Castle of Discernment (for me).

Sentio CogitoErgo Sum exists before physical birth and we take it with us when we go. WE KNOW IN OUR HEARTS which way to go if we learn to listen in surrender. This existence precedes the words, at best an echo of the Divine, that I write at this time. Follow the White Rabbit! There is no spoon.
