By giving it this kind of attention, you don’t turn it into thinking and thus activate the story of the unhappy me. Unhappiness and problems cannot survive in the Now.
The next time you have a feeling of heaviness, tightness, agitation, anger, or even nausea, know that this is simply an intense pressure or energy somewhere in the body, and just allow it to be—become curious about it.
Stay totally with what is now.
Know that all of those feelings are causing you suffering, and if you are in the habit of causing yourself suffering, then you are probably causing suffering for others too.
