All turbulence is on the periphery. Deep inside there is pristine silence. Untrained mind by default runs on autopilot mode. Meditation is your effort to detach from past and future and move from periphery to the Centre to feel a sense of peace that is never available in the externalities of periphery. How can fear and anxiety catch you if you are in the centre within? If you want to be truly happy then move to your Home within. That is your true Abode of Peace.
