The past is something you think is your foundation. The present is something you think will last. The future is something you want to com. Overcoming all these is a trial. First you have to let go. Then you have to see. Then you have to hold.

Emotiona can swell with all these thoughts. So you have to look elsewhere. Constantly seeing the things around you. Walls, computers, doors, buses. Busyness. The world is bussling. Vibrancy with life and rythm. So don't think about what happens. Just think about what you do. You are a ligh to many people. They need you for many things. What you see. Care, peace, happiness, evil, craziness. It all adds together. So use your light. Show the people what you see. The eye is the light to the soul.

Great thread! Yes all of the things mentioned have helped me. 

I would add to that-- when I directly watch my worst feelings (the worst anxiety or whatever the worst feeling is), if I do so from a neutral, or accepting point of view, the bad feelings will actually dissolve and pass more quickly.

Of if they do stay, they will lose their 'overwhelming' quality and just become a background color.


Either way, I get free of my anxiety problems that way. 

This has also helped me with other overwhelming feelings.

P.S. This requires a sustained, mediTative watching. Utilizing gentle persistence to continually refocus/ develop a sustained focus.
