Anxiety, we are told is an inevitable, indeed a necessary part of human life. Some even say it is hard-wired into our brains. If we simply accept this approach then we sell ourselves short. We accept a life of dissatisfaction made bearable by a few family and friends and our transient pleasures. But it’s always there, in the background, or raising its ugly head. Anxiety.
Anxiety has one positive quality. It tells us we are getting something wrong. It’s the symptom not the disease. The disease is actually a very basic confusion – about how to make ourselves happy. In this course the teacher will explain how Buddha eliminates this confusion by clearly showing us how to identify the real causes of happiness and suffering. With this wisdom we can then be confident of reducing and finally overcoming our anxiety.
