"When we sit down to meditate, anxiety may arise. Certainly resistance and discouragement will also come up. The practice is to see the thoughts, feel the physical aspects of anxiety, become aware of the breath and environment, and just let it all be there. Whatever our state of mind or body might be, the practice is to really feel what that is; and while staying with the breath and environment, we let it be as it is."
