heart as tent

instead of feeling fearful, noticing what it's like to have fear coursing through me. this entails being larger than the emotion, providing a vehicle for the fear (pumping heart, racing blood) but not letting that vehicle direct the course. the feeling happens through me, not to me.

brain will get thrown off, because brain will tend to want to be in charge (by brain, i'm pretty sure i mean ego). heart is this inestimable wealth of calmness, belying its depth with a hundred mona lisa smiles. sheltering emotion, culling wisdom from it.
