It is easy to get caught up feeling negative about our lives, the government or even the future of the planet. This fear comes from our belief in duality, of all things being separate and independent. In fact, the Buddha taught the opposite. He taught that all things are dependent and interconnected. If we can understand this truth, then we can move away from extreme dualistic views that create friend and enemy, love and hate, us and them, right and wrong. Only then can we see that these mental states are based on a false view of reality.
Through meditation we can learn how to create positive mental states by lessening our grasping at our own self-importance and come to see that our happiness is deeply connected to all others.
