C-PTSD:..Buddha’s Brain Again:…Fear;..A Mental State

“Anxiety, dread, apprehension, worry and even panic are just mental states like any other.

*

Recognize fear when it arises, observe the feeling of it in your body, watch it try to convince you that you should be alarmed, see it change and move on.

*

Verbally describe to yourself what you’re feeling, to increase frontal lobe regulation of the limbic system (Hariri, Bookheimer, and Mazziotta 2000; Lieberman et al. 2007).

*

Notice how the awareness which contains fear is itself never fearful.  

*

Keep separating from the fear; settle back into the vast space of awareness through which fear passes like a cloud.

*

The mind has the ability to understand fear, staying totally present when fear arrives.

*

It is similar to pain-like an alarm going off, a bell being rung.

*

Real harm to our bodies does not come from pain or fear.”

*

PTSD is a disorder using false fear and cortisol, that is all.
