Past worry

ImageName something you are no longer worried about~asks plinky. Well  Arthur Somers had it right when he said worry is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.

Remember the story of Bali Maharaj of the Hindu mythology? The vamana avataar is a great example, the three tiny steps it just enlarged to consume the entire existence of Bali, or the story of Yashoda, her son Krishna happens to be the center of existence, this is true of any mother the child does not have to be Krishna to every mother her child is Krishna.

There was a time I worried about what people would say,  more importantly what would my mother say. Everything in my life was geared to getting her approval, well hopefully I am out of it now.

Wayne Dyer sums it up well, when he says It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there is nothing you can do about them, why worry about things you do control? It’s the activity of worrying that keeps you immobilized.

After all God is managing affairs and he doesn’t need any advice from you or me, with God in charge everything will work out the way it should, so why worry.

One major reason why more people die of worry than work is more people worry than work.

Like Charles Schulz said, don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.
