I can notice craving and aversion, but those arise in dependence upon vedana (as in DO), so they are not vedana. I can notice emotions, but those are sankharas, and not vedana.
The suttas talk a lot about “physical” (bodily) vedana, but less about “mental” vedana, which appears to be the bare affective quality of mental objects.
So what is mental vedana really like, and how do I notice it? How do I isolate it from emotion, craving and aversion, like and dislike, etc?
And on a related note, is mental vedana the second arrow in the Arrow Sutta?SuttaCentral
