I'd like to share an experience that happened to me.
i was with a group of my husband's medic friends & aqaintances having a pre- theatre meal. The conversation was mainly around the topic of medicine & views were being exchanged. I felt left out, unable to join in & was increasingly irritated & felt trapped. Into this state popped in a question - "who is feeling alienated?" With the emphasis on WHO. The feelings just dissolved & i felt immediate release. Th nightbefore i had been reading a practice in Jack Kornfield's book- repeatedly asking oneself Who am I?.
With appreciation for the article. Patricia
