How to Deal With Being Challenged
• Here is how Thich Nhat Hanh deals with being challenged..!
"Mindful breathing, and recognize the feeling, recognize the situation and help us not to give ourselves to be overwhelmed by negative feeling like fear or anxiety and you are still yourself.
" It's like a mother, when the baby is crying. She picks up the baby and she holds the baby tenderly in her arms."
Your pain, your anxiety is your baby. You have to take care of it. You have to go back to yourself, recognize the suffering in you embrace the suffering and you get a relief. And if you continue with your practice of mindfulness and concentration you understand the roots, the nature of that ill-being and you know the way to transform it."
