One time, Huike shared his troubles with Bodhidharma. “My mind is always filled with anxiety. Please help me to quiet it.” Bodhidharma replied, “I will calm these anxieties for you. But first, will you bring them to me? If you can set them before me and say, ‘These are the anxieties that burden me,’ I will be sure to calm them for you.” Hearing this, Huike realized something for the first time. “Anxiety” was a thing within his mind. In reality, it was intangible. His fears were intangible, and yet he clung to them. He recognized the futility in this.
