Anxiety is the whole thing, and it is this wholeness you must be aware of



What is anxiety?

You have the anxiety, and you have the mind, which says: ”There must not be anxiety!”

In this way a doubleness arises.

There is the observer who places himself outside the anxiety, and makes resistance against it, sucks energy and life away from the present and into condemnation, justification, comparison; the observer who analyses, theorizes, or goes to a psychotherapist.

And there is the observed. The observed is the anxiety, and the observer places himself outside this anxiety.

In this way there immediately arises a conflict between the anxiety and the observer who is in progress with defeating this anxiety, in getting rid of this anxiety.

In other words there is resistance, which has been produced by an inner spectator, doubter or calculator, who creates a discrepancy between the observer and the observed.

Anxiety is the whole thing, and it is this wholeness you must be aware of.
