It’s easy to identify strongly with your body because it’s tangible and visible.
Perhaps it’s equally easy to identify with your thoughts or emotions because they’re readily available and sometimes all consuming.
It’s not so easy to remember who you really are, especially in chaos.
You’re not your body, mind, or emotions.
You are the One watching your thoughts and feeling your emotions.
Your body is your vehicle for participation.
In moments of isolation, confusion, or havoc re-connect with the watcher.
This is the part of you that holds the big picture.
Get some space between you and what is troubling. In the space you can refocus.
No need to be overly attached to any physical condition, mental trappings, or emotional turmoil.
The drama is in the up close perspective.
Remember who you are. Create some space. Redirect your attention.
