See the Truth about Anxiety

posted by Guy Finley

When we are anxious, when there’s a pressing desire, we don’t see the fact that the state has occupied us and is trying to reconcile itself through what it pushes us to acquire. If we could look at something we want, and at the same moment we feel that pressing anxiety, the push to acquire it, we could use these same eyes for a mirror to be able to see the nature that wants to acquire, we would in that instant know that we are in relationship with something that is not right for us, that cares nothing for anyone or anything else, only to get what it wants. The discovery, the awareness of that, is the nullification of the anxiety.

This isn’t something that you choose to do. You don’t have to try to be good. Goodness itself produces it with the simultaneous glimpse of these opposites, which only your awareness can do.

Do the best you can to see yourself as you go through your day. The task is to first be aware of yourself, and be aware of others at the same time. This is practical, down to earth spiritual work, so that there is no mistaking the difference between wanting to feel good about where we are and what we have vs. being in the Goodness that is always where we are and allowing it to live our lives for us as we are there.

The Music of the Mind
The music of the mind -- its harmony, or not, is expressed by the order of its thoughts through which it is instrumented. Confusion is dissonance; clarity is flow.
