Anxiety, Worry, Fear

Free from Anxiety, Worry, Fear
The young deity Subrahma once asked the Buddha:
Always frightened is this mind!
Always agitated is this mind!
About present problems.
About future problems.
If there is a release from this anxiety
please explain it to me...
Whereupon the Blessed Buddha declared:
I see no other safety for any living being
except the control of the senses,
except the relinquishment of all,
except the seclusion linking to Enlightenment!
From Samyutta Nikaya
With Metta,
Bro. Oh Teik Bin
