Emotions, beliefs, and actions

A thought:

Beliefs are the long-term crystallization of feelings. It is dangerous to allow our actions to be based impulsively on moment-to-moment feelings, but at the same time, we want our actions to be in harmony with our emotions. By basing our actions on beliefs, they are  rooted in the more stable tendencies of our emotions, allowing for harmony within ourselves, but avoiding the dangers of rash action.
