an anti-anxiety verse

yad bhAvi tad bhavaty eva yad abhAvyaM na tad bhavet
iti nizcita buddhInAM na cintA bAdhate kvacit

What is destined to happen does definitely happen. What is not to
occur shall never occur. Intelligent people who come to this decision
are not worried by any anxiety. (NArada PurANa 1.37.47)

Buddha uvaca, cf BG 2.21-22

The ego [primarily] pure has been defiled on account of the external passions since the beginningless past, (359) and what has been added from outside is like a [soiled] garment to be washed off. As when a garment is cleansed of its dirt, or when gold is removed from its impurities, they are not destroyed but remain as they are; so is the ego freed from its defilements. (Lankavatara-sutra, Sagathakam 755-756, D.T. Suzuki, London 1932)

augmented, giving up laukika-abhilASA (worldly desires),
pAralaukika-abhilASA (other worldly pursuits such as elevation to the
heavenly planets and acquisition of mystic perfections in yoga), and any
other kind of aspiration. This same idea has been expressed in
ZrImad-BhAgavatam: bhaktyA saJjAtayA bhaktyA (S.B. 11.3.31)—bhakti is
produced only by bhakti. According to this statement, bhakti (zravaNa,

vasudhaiva kutumbakam verse with ref.

This is a very popular verse. It's a bit similar to BG 6.9.
SP discusses it in 770424me.bom.

ayam bandhuH ayam neti jJAna laghu cetasAm
udAra caritAnAm tu vasudhaiva kutumbakam

"This is a friend but that one is not," says a simple-minded person. To
a broad-minded person the whole world is a family. (MahA UpaniSad 6.72)
