Anxiety is a result of excessive activity in the subconscious. People give too much attention to life situations, and they do not address their mind and body, letting tension build up.
To reliably reduce one’s level of anxiety is extremely simple. Just stop trying to do anything. Observe what thoughts and feelings are popping up.
With each thought or feeling that comes up, you become a little less tense inside. You become a little less anxious as a person. There is simply no alternative, what is buried inside must come out in order for you to get better.
Relaxed awareness is the default, healthy state of being. All thoughts that aren’t consciously created are pain in disguise. That is why you do not get thoughts that have no emotional importance to you.
Desire promises you an escape from pain, but wanting anything is just further pain. Having friends and being successful in life will not provide lasting happiness. They are outside of yourself, and happiness is on the inside.
Fulfillment is a choice that you can make at every moment, by choosing to relax and observe the miracle of existence, or by chasing a mirage.
