What Helps Me Cope with Difficult Emotions — by Sara Fabian

Yesterday I inadvertantly created a situation where a very powerful emoter became intensely upset and broadcast such a powerful storm of distress that I was completely caught wide open and absorbed quite a bit of it before I was able to shut down.

One Has No Self To Love — by Alan Watts

"Love that expresses itself in creative action is something much more than an emotion. It is not something which you can “feel” and “know,” remember and define.
