I've often said that drugs are drugs are drugs. Some are more socially acceptable than others but their use and abuse is always similar. They may indeed be quite useful and necessary on occasion but when one starts using them daily things start getting complicated.
Love your fear
This video is in keeping with my practice of embracing all that arises within. Fear here can be translated to "anxiety," which is the clinical term for fear which everyone at one time or another experiences with or without a diagnosis of anxiety. Psychiatry pathologizes much of the normal human experience and it's often referred to in Buddhism as such. Normal. There are techniques to learn how to be with these normal feelings, whether they're very intense or not.
