We all know a lot.
How does knowledge feel?
And how do you feel that you know?
How do you feel what you know?
How do your feelings feel?
Your felt feeling! 

Consult your feeling of being disconnected and being connected,
Being indifferent or committed.
Does feeling connected make you more empathic?
Does empathy make your surroundings more tangible?
Are your feelings embodied knowledge?
Does your body drive action?
What space makes you want to act?
Does your felt knowledge make space for others?
Your felt space!

There is a difference between wanting to act and acting.
One is thinking, the other doing.
Do you recognise the feeling of wanting to act but not acting?
Hold this feeling.
Then consult your own experience of empathic action.
Now pause.
How does the discrepancy between the desire to act and the experience of action feel?
Bring the pause to an end.
