Meditation Stops Us Panicking

If we listen to the news, we will think the world is out of control.
On the other hand, it could be seen as total control
If you can weigh up all possibilities, then you can decide.

Life is stressful for most people, and that culminates in exhaustion.
Exhausted people cannot think straight.

Regardless of what is happening in the world,
we need to find some sense of reality and stability,
rather than hiding away in religion or philosophy.

In the stillness of meditation, we can see what is happening in our mind.
Having seen, we can then either watch our mind continue to panic,
or realise the cause of that panic.

Panic: sudden uncontrollable fear or anxiety, often causing wildly unthinking behaviour.
From Greek panikos, from the name of the god Pan, noted for causing terror.

Meditation is silent clarity, free of ideas and free of fear.
Goodness know, that can’t be bad.
