Video – When the Feelings Are the Facts

This piece takes aim at the prevalence of fake news, but more specifically, our desire to let our feelings about an issue become the facts of the issue in our minds.  We create an enormous amount of suffering when the feelings we feel become the facts we find truth in.  We make our feelings our reality, instead of accepting reality—the facts—as it is.

In addition, this comments on how relative facts can be at times when viewed from different perspectives, even though there are countless truths that are immutable and concrete.

It is important that we humbly accept facts, and not let our feelings overwhelm us.  Every feeling has a purpose, but the purpose of feelings is not to let them warp our reality.
