There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever . Mahatma Gandhi
worry worry worry
- Why do we worry so much?
- What are we truly afraid of?
- What’s the worst that’ll happen?
- Will what we worry about matter in 50 or 100 years?
Ultimately we’re safe. We feel afraid and spend time worrying because we live the illusion that we are responsible for self. That’s simply not true. If we only rely on self we’ll never get over our fear and insecurity. We must pay allegiance to a higher order. That higher order may be God or a philosophy. The concept of God works really well for me. I like to think that a divine parent is responsible for her kids on Earth. I feel safe and worry less whenever I can remind myself of this Truth.
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM safe.
