It is because you can feel a different life than your family and friends. And that is it. You can feel, while they are lost in ideas, conventionality, political and spiritual talk. Talk. Talk. Not feel, feel.
There is such fear about deep feeling in our world. Buddhism and Advaita, and most of Christianity suppresses deep feelings, such as for love and sex, as being an attachment that leads to suffering, or a sin. Thus we live in a non-feeling, a frightened of feeling, frightened of love, frightened of sex world.
Lack of feeling love or orgasms makes everyone not in love or deep relationship long for it, yet also fear it for the pain it might later cause from loss.
All religions want us to transcend the body, and some, even the soul, reaching Nirvana or the Witness, the unchanging Self of all, or heaven. So we strive to watch everything, including emotions, rather than feel them with our bodies. When we begin again to feel with our bodies, and sink inside them, we find a different world, a world of sensations, emotions, energies, bliss, ecstatic sex, heart openings and love.
A world of feeling that is concealed to so many, who use arguments that unbridled feelings lead to suffering and chaos. This is an argument used to stay entirely away from feelings used by overly cerebral people.
