The Only Thing We Have To Handle

It is surprising that the only thing to be handled in these acute catastrophic events is the energy of the emotions themselves. If we look at the experience, we see it is not the event that happened or we think happened in the world that is the problem but the way we feel about it. Who cares about facts? They do not mean anything in and of themselves. It is one’s emotional reaction to the fact. The fact is only a fact, a ‘nothing’. How we feel about the fact is therefore the only thing we really ever have to handle about the events in life.
