Anxiety-Part One

Inability to sleep, a racing mind, a constant stream of worries, future projecting, a debilitating concern about the state of the world, inability to focus or make decisions, or adding to lists of troubles in your mind are all clues that you are feeling anxious.
Once identified, label it rather than avoid or deny it. State simply to yourself or someone else, “I am anxious.” Usually we resist stating this because anxiety suggests a state of vulnerability, fragility, lack of control, or weakness.
When we can accept this current of energy running through us as not really of us but a mind-imposed state, we are able to come closer to peace.
