I have a little vertigo sometimes, and a while ago, I said to Jessica, “The world is spinning like mad!”
She stood for a moment, I guess checking out the world, and then she asked, “Is it the world, or is it you?”
And of course it was me, not the world; the problem, or the perception, was generated by my own brain.
It made me think how often we frame our experiences as being the result of something in the world when it is something in us. So a question I have asked myself more lately is, “Is it the world, or is it just me?”
