observing the spaces between feelings

Sheila Catherine:

“Noticing change and observing the spaces between feelings can bring a balanced perspective to emotion.
.
.

Emotions are an expression of empty phenomena that arise in response to stimulus, are experienced and cease.
.
.
The Buddha described a human being as a guesthouse; many kinds of feelings come, stay for a while, and then travel on.
.
Try greeting all emotions as visitors or guests.
.
Allow them to visit, accept that they arise due to conditions, but don’t adopt them as permanent residents.”
