What is the difference between a thought and a feeling – a certainty and a belief?

  1. You can feel a thought, but you can’t think a feeling. You can’t be certain of your belief, but you can believe your certainty. Or vice-versa

    A thought can be easily expressed in words, but a feeling can only be hinted at. I formulate thoughts but experience feelings.

    Certainty is knowing something. . . because it is self-evident or proven true. There is nothing that I am absolutely certain of, but a few things that I am almost absolutely certain of–close enough to just say that I *am* certain.

    Belief is being reasonably certain of something because of evidence. For example, I believe that my wife has a headache because she is wincing and rubbing her temples.

    (Evidence is important for belief. I don’t subscribe to the notion of “blind faith.”)

    Belief can also mean the principles by which I live. For example, I believe in treating others as I wish to be treated.

  3. Words are hard for me lately so please forgive me if this sounds confused but I believe that feelings come more from our heart and can be harder to put a finger on while thoughts are more coherant.

    (I hope that makes some sense!)

    Peace, love and words.

  5. A thought can be prompted from a feeling, but comes from within. A feeling comes from outside, but can ignite a thought. A certainlty can come from a feeling or a thought, but is usually wrong.
    As for a belief? The above.
