Hullo Dane, So there is an anxious guest in your guest-house. (Rumi's poem of how to deal with this is posted on this site.) Acceptance of any negative emotion is the first step for me.

Yep, Webwanderer, I'm in agreement with you. A recent book by H.J.Sharp, talks of "self-remembering" being two steps up from the normal...
