A Cure for Anxiety

Learn to hold your fear…
A thousand speared warriors are marching toward you;
Do not run,
Do not hide,
Do not fight,
Just sit on the side of the road and let them pass.

If uncertainty breeds anxiety,
And if nothing in life is certain,
Then why not just surrender your illusion of control?
A man scrambles on a beach
To keep 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.
