Becoming the reaction

When something happens that either angers us or irritates or conflicts with our values and opinions, take a moment to observe the reaction within us. We normally react without pause.

However, the instance that we pause and just observe the reaction, we realise that we are not the reaction, and we can stop ourselves from becoming the reaction. The real us is not the reaction.

Most often we do not take that moment, worth a try, worth a pause.
