When your spirit is low, you switch to the higher mind which wants to control and classify everything around you.
You become an analyst of players, rather than a player yourself. You used to be a player and now you are an analyst of players!
You do this to occupy your time until you regain your spirit. This is a confusing, frustrating place, but it is essential you live through it - and most do.
Then you rise again.
Players are always Players.
