    Can anyone advise on this.
    As a soul when I hit 7/8 this was the age where I noticed I started to develop anxiety complexes.
    Before then I was more carefree, less worried about life and rarely felt any kind of stress, emotional pain or anxiety in random situations out and about in the everyday world around other people.

    I guess I would have felt traumas from inside family issues though which would be normal but not the anxiety issues around others and everyday life situations.

    Growing up in a physical body and getting used to this earth plane as you become more conscious inside your body is tough.

    Being in the body was hard for me. I know exactly what you are on about. I was happy go lucky yet melancholic child, adolescent and young adult. Both at the same time. That discomfort of being in the body, in this world was the very calling of my life... that shifted dramatically when I finally let Osho fully into my heart and life, after years of sitting on the wall.
    Please don't dismiss it but even more importantly don't make it cerebrally big in you.

    Being here is somewhat hard now but it is more of what this hell hole is all about rather than a cerebral and personal suffering. It is what it is.

    Play the game, lighten up. Let the game play you how she will. Open your heart to being here. You are here, afterall! That is a fact. So relax, embrace the body this reality, your place and positioning in it.

    May Grace move you forward in right direction

    Yeah exactly we wouldn't come here otherwise. I have thought more about this lately opening up my heart to the flow.

    One of the things I can't get my head around is we can kind of control events but not really. We only have a certain amount of control. Life is like one big game.

    I don't have a problem being here it's pretty exciting I just wish I could control how I respond to this environment e.g stopping the feelings of anxiety from arising in stupid situations. If there was a switch I would flick it. Whatever part of the brain that is you would have to medicate it or switch it off somehow.

    You clearly cannot see it but you are saying two opposite things.
    If you don't have a problem, where is the problem then?....mind is subtle, slippery mechanism. It steals from right under your nose and you cannot even see it.

    In one breath you say we only have so much control and in the next....wish I could control....endless loop. The whole world is caught in this one foot forward, one backwards

    The whole point of acceptance is in the acceptance of whole of it. Not bits, not chunks. Otherwise it is not acceptance. It is still a power struggle.

    Bow down to this anxiety. You ( the anxiety) can stay. Nothing I can do....do your best/ worst. I am happy that you wish to stay with me. Stay let's be together, let's be friends, let's be intimate

    See how that shifts it. Anxiety will diapapear like kaboom!

    I know.
    A set of contradictions .....
    Well I've been in communion with it for years so I guess it is a part of me.

    Sounds a bit like you've got your feet in different camps. You can't serve two masters, not at the same time.
    There was a riddle in a film I watch were the chap said to his daughter that there were two wolves, one good and one bad. The question was which one survived.
    The answerer is the one that you feed.

    If we let other people program us life will be tough. Society starts to program us at a very early age. If we allow this to happen our lives will not be our own.
    We have been created with all the tools for a happy peaceful harmonious and healthy life. The trick is to apply these tools. Not the easiest thing to do. It's almost like learning a different language, one that nobody else speaks. It may sound a bit nutty but the language is between you and God.
