Not Who You Are

Last night I listened to a great talk by Phillip Moffitt, in which he pointed out the difference between being identified with an emotion (or thought, feeling, or mind state) and being characterized by it. It’s one thing to feel sad, for example, and quite another to feel that you ARE sad.

It’s not just a trick of semantics. It’s the difference between being able to experience sadness (or rage, anxiety, confusion, etc.) and being overwhelmed by it.

Phillip explains this much better than I can. Listen to him here.
