When it is not possible to worship God in the tabernacles of nature, men should do their best to provide houses of beauty, sanctuaries of appealing simplicity and artistic embellishment, so that the highest of human emotions may be aroused in association with the intellectual approach to spiritual communion with God. 
The absurdities of dream life not only testify to pressure of unexpressed emotions but also bear witness to the horrible distortion of the representations of the spiritual concepts presented by the Adjusters.  Emotional excitement is not the ideal spiritual stimulus. Excitement does not augment energy; it rather exhausts the powers of both mind and body.  Sometime the children of the kingdom will realize that strong feelings of emotion are not equivalent to the leadings of the divine spirit.  Many human reactions are mechanical in nature; much of life is machinelike. 
Early man soon had many emotions. He felt admiration for objects and other beings, they had vanity, they felt adoration, fear, veneration, humility and even a primitive form of gratitude, along with fear.  Reduced land yield or increased population brings worst traits of human nature to surface. 
We must remember that feeling, not thinking, was the guiding and controlling influence in all evolutionary development. 
The divine spirit makes contact with mortal man, not by feelings or emotions, but in the realm of the highest and most spiritualized thinking. It is our thoughts, not our feelings, that lead us Godward. 
En la religión de todas las épocas, la experiencia más importante es el sentimiento relacionado con los valores morales y los significados sociales, y no el pensamiento relativo a los dogmas teológicos o a las teorías filosóficas.  Material feelings, human emotions, lead directly to material actions, selfish acts. 
Jesus taught the appeal to the emotions as the technique of arresting and focusing the intellectual attention.  Jesus experienced a natural ebb and flow of emotions in the hours leading up to his capture and execution.
