I sometimes feel very nervous in front of an unexpected situation. Today, for instance, I got almost locked in the bathrooms and felt anxious and nervous.
Can zen help me in such situations? How can I fight and avoid them?
Answer from Master Kosen
Do not fight against your nervousness, but accept it. Accept it totally, embody it and live it thoroughly, and go beyond the fear it induces. Let it overwhelm you and watch this internal phenomenon as if you were only witnessing it.
