anxiety starts to disintegrate

Being conscious is cutting through your own melodrama
 and being right here. Exist in no mind, be empty, here now, 
and trust that as a situation arises, out of you will come 
what is necessary to deal with that situation 
including the use of your intellect when appropriate. 
Your intellect need not be constantly held on to keep reassuring
 you that you know where you’re at, out of fear of loss of control.

Ultimately,  that anxiety starts to disintegrate.
 And you start to define yourself as in flow with the universe; 
and whatever comes along—death, life joy, sadness
—is grist for the mill of awakening.
