I am in the airport right now and the fire alarm keeps going off with the message that the alarm is being investigated, but they are not turning it off.
This airport as a whole is experiencing anxiety. Everyone looks somewhat relaxed but it is impossible to ignore the alarm, it is so disruptive of peace but everyone looks like they are ok with it.
How often do some of us feel this way, there is possibly something that could go wrong, maybe we haven’t done enough, … we have to stay on alert, in action; this is the feeling of anxiety. Maybe we have been able to cope with it through an outer or even inner veneer of calm but is it really calm and at peace at the core?
Anxiety is ubiquitous in our culture that it is almost an expectation. What would it be like to have no inner alarm going off?
