项目说明 (Program Description)
What is Anxiety?
Krishnamurti: You know that state of tremendous anxiety – whether it’s examination, whether it is something or other – you are terribly anxious. When there is anxiety you get nervous, you perspire, you know, everything takes place. That’s an actuality, it is not a concept, it’s not an idea. So the speaker is saying remain, hold or stay with that word, that feeling of anxiety.
We are soaked in anxious energy in big cities – from a heavy 9-9-6 (9am-9pm 6 days a week) workload, skyrocketing property prices, education of children, to our future as a whole. Dense population, fast-paced life and stressful work; it seems big cities have made anxiety the background music of our life. And we don’t seem to be able to eliminate the content of our anxiety – does it mean we have no other choice but to live with it? Many even believe that as long as people around us are suffering the same anxiety, it’s normal. What is anxiety exactly? Is it a synonym to fear? Can we look at it without the urge to define or to justify? Is it possible to maintain a quiet mind in an anxious energy field?
