What Leslie did with this woman is this: she said “I want you to close your eves and see your carpet, and see that there is not a single footprint on it anywhere, It’s clean and fluffy - not a mark anywhere.”
This woman closed her eyes and she was in seventh heaven, just smiling away. Then Leslie said “And realize fully that that means you are totally alone, and that the people you care and love are nowhere around.”
The woman's expression shifted radically, and she felt terrible! Then Leslie said “Now, put a few footprints there and look at those footprints and know that the people you care most about in the world are nearby." And then, of course, she felt good again.
