Overcoming Fear and Anxiety
Book: The New Transform Your Life
Term 2: Feb 6 – Mar 17 (6 Weeks)
Our basic wish in life is to be happy all the time, but how do we accomplish this? Buddha explained that the real source of happiness is inner peace. If we can learn to maintain a peaceful mind all the time then we will be happy all the time. The reason why we find it so hard to be happy all the time is that delusions, such as fear and anxiety, are always causing us to see the world in an exaggerated negative way. By contemplating and meditating on ultimate truth, or emptiness, we can learn to see through the illusions of our mind. Then we will understand things as they really are and, not only will we be happy all the time, but we can become a source of happiness for others. Then we will have accomplished the true meaning of our life. In this series we will learn how to meditate on emptiness and develop deep inner peace.
