However, Everything is not something outside. It is something in your mental activities. We are mind made. Those stresses and worries are also mind made.

They are very untangeable and unseeable. It is not you but your mind that creates it. So, creates the good thing, not the bad one, creates happiness, not stress.
There is a very nice story of a man who goes for interviewing. The manager asked him ” Imagine, what should you do if the office in under fire? there are lots of documents and staffs inside the office “. The man replied ” It is very easy. I stop doing imagination”. Yes, Let me repeat the phrase ” I stop doing imagination”. The stress occurs because people like stressing. They do not dislike stressing. Don’t make yourself harder, because you are already hard. Take it easier.
