Concentration, Anxiety, and Meditation - 22jan23

Concentration, Fear, and Aggression: these are all of the same family; that of rigidity, tension, and control. Therefore concentrating exclusively upon the breath, in hopes of transcending anxiety is as ineffective as making love in the name of abstinence.

But rigidity is to concentration as flexibility is to mindfulness and if we wish to transcend the hold that fear could have over our choices, utterances, and deeds we must traverse the Buddha’s path vulnerably, passively, viscerally, and spontaneously.

Remember: the test of any method, in the direction of any goal, is NOT its age, popularity, nor beauty, but simply its effectiveness. And if you feel that concentrating upon the breath is exacerbating your anxiety (rather than healing it) then it is time to explore a new method that you too could meditate like a Jedi.
