Sometimes I get engulfed in doubt, panic. When I can sit everything becomes clear, the mind calms down, but when I have to deal with the problems of this body, ego everything comes back to this stressful state. How to resolve this? Should just let them wear off and don't attach to them? How?

It is important that you can settle when you do zazen. There is little we can do about the pressure which we experience being in the midst of this modern society. That inner center which becomes weak during daily life can be strengthened again by zazen. And staying with this practice you will notice how more and more you naturally can bring this quiet center to all situations in your life as well, and how from there all uncertainty and irritation disappears.
