I know nothing of Buddhism--I am a Christian who has spent his life trying unsuccessfully to inhabit the peace and love promised by Jesus, ending up usually with worrty and frustration. Only very recently have I found that attentiveness and what the doctor calls mindfulness are central parts of faith. As long as I (or you) blame external circumstances, whatever they are, for my lack of peace, I make no progress. When I realize that the promise of faifth is not the removal of suffering, but rather the ability to prosper despite fear and worry, then everything changes. What the doctor is speaking of in this video is as far from stress management as you can get. It is faith and spirituality at its best.
