A beautiful article on protecting yourself from being emotionally drained by other people’s shadow. A brilliant read.
Everything that upsets you (without exception) is a messenger from the universe, sent to help you. Always look within (using felt-perception, not your analytical mind) to feel the true cause of your upset. Watch your mind come up with its protests, blame and ‘special exceptions’ and just let them be. Return to your feelings, feel the fear, anger or grief that lies at the heart of your upset. The mind stories about the upset are all mere projections – regardless of how plausible and justified they seem.
