The words are often used interchangeably. For my own clarity, I understand emotions to be primarily fear-based. Emotions such as anger, jealousy and sadness, tend to contract. Feelings, or virtues, are rooted in universal love. Feelings, at a higher vibrational rate than emotions, are the innate divine and express as expansive compassion, serenity and bliss.... I am wondering how you see it.

Wonderful comments. When you felt nothing but love and utter humility, what would you call that? Is humility, for example, an emotion, feeling, virtue or something else? I relate to your story, thank you for writing.
Tim, I took a look at Plutchik's wheel of emotions. It has acceptance opposite disgust, and surprise opposite anticipation. Seems more like acceptance - resistance and surprise is a response rather than an emotion. But it is interesting. Thank you!
