A Cure for Anxiety

Learn to hold your fear.
A thousand speared warriors are marching your way.
Do not run.
Do not hide.
Do not fight.
Just sit aside and let them pass.

If uncertainty breeds anxiety,
and if nothing in life is certain,
then why not just surrender your illusions of control?

A man scrambles on a beach
to hold the bad waves at bay,
and to keep the good waves coming.
Utterly frustrated and exhausted,
he finally sits down and surrenders:

A never healing wound on a man’s heal
once turned him into the best of archers.
In every wound there is a gift, and in every gift there is a curse.
Tread carefully and learn to sit squarely at the centre of your fears,
for it is there that you shall find safety.
