Keeping space between


When we watch football, we don’t watch it from the field. We are in the stands watching from a distance.

The players are running around but we are stable; there is a space between us and the game.

Similarly, at a concert, we watch the band from our seats. We do not take the stage. There is a distance between us and the performance. We are merely the watcher.

This is how we should watch our feelings – from a distance.

We should not slip down and cling to them
