Mark twain said, “I have had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.” When you wake up in the middle of the night is your mind voice chattering at you on a variety of topics?
The worry syndrome has us all stressed trying to figure out what to do about something that has not happened yet.
What if we lived in the moment?
Yes, we can plan the things we want to do in our life and then what?
Take one step at a time.
Using your awareness, turn on your inner vision to see what is next.
Let’s take relationships as an example.
Most of us want one. We have a list of all the qualities of our partner and we won’t settle for less.
Then we worry and fret about when and where they will show up.
The way I see it is if you are happy where you are then the grasping for something that looks better will be relieved.
The life you and I have is the best life we are living, in this moment. It can’t get any better now.
It has huge potential to change in the next moment.
Letting go of worry, planning, grasping and trying hard will bring you peace.
When you have peace in your heart, people and experiences can and will show up beyond your wildest dreams.
I have found letting go to bring me peace to be a practice on a daily basis.
There is a constant pull to hang on to what looks good or makes me comfortable.
I forget that it may not be serving my highest and best.
Check it out for yourself. Pay attention to your thinking and self talk. See how much of it is about stuff that hasn’t happened yet.
Then let go. Walk the path of your life with happiness in this moment.
This is who you are.
