Difference between Feelings and Emotions

Emotions are well established in the mind and arise when faced with some particular situation, circumstance and turn of events. Some of these are anger, happiness, love, compassion, sadness, fear, surprise etc. Feelings are combinations of thoughts, sensations, experiences good or bad and fixed notions in the mind. If some guy creates hurdles in our way, irritates us badly, misbehaves with us, exploits us and hurl abuses at us, we create feelings of animosity, hatred and aversion for that guy in our mind. Likewise, if some person is well disposed toward us, we have feelings of love, friendliness and empathy toward him/ her. When faced with such guys, we are filled with certain feelings but they cannot be termed as emotions. Emotions are like hidden elements that are surfaced suddenly and evaporated after sometime whereas feelings are intact. Though our emotions are part and parcel of our mind and are in a way inherent, feelings are outcome of our own products based on our own experience.

To me a feeling last longer and an emotion is just a small flash and/or the beginning of a feeling. An example can be fear. Say you are fearful of spiders. The emotion "fear" sends a quick flash of safety to you and you have the feeling fear embedded into your mind. Now that feeling can stay with you for several hours, but the emotion fear itself has been turned off and new emotion turn on.
