More on Thought vs Feeling

Rick asked 2 years ago

I know this has been covered before but I’m still uncertain about it. What is the distinction between a ‘thought’ and a ‘feeling’ when making gentle note of the distraction caused by each and returning to breathing or focus? How can a feeling be distinguished when even the process of distinguishing between the two involves ‘thought.’ (In other words, if we have a feeling of discomfort and notice it in the body, then take note of it .. “ahh .. my left toe is experiencing pain” .. does it not now become a thought?) I’m not sure that I’m expressing this well enough .. but this is the essence of my question. It feels nearly impossible to take note of a ‘feeling’ and a ‘feeling’ only.
