The complexity of reality, and the limitations of verbal tools, can perhaps be glimpsed in two things Jan Cox said, on different occasions, to his students: One--that everything everywhere affects you and TWO -- that the news of the world does not affect you. Sounds contradictory huh. One way, perhaps one way of many, to parse this is--
The wider world of events, does not affect you because your concern moment by moment should be on the vigor of your cranial composure.
ALSO though, everything about you ripples in patterns affected by -- roadkill in Australia, -- and everything else going on.
