“We humans have lost the wisdom of genuinely resting and relaxing. We worry too much. We don’t allow our bodies to heal, and we don’t allow our minds and hearts to heal.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh; Vietnamese Buddhist monk and peace activist.
” From the passions arise worry, and from worry arises fear. Away with the passions, and no fear, no worry.” ~ Buddha.
Worry is another delusion which spreads sickness into the body, its power if allowed robs you of the joy of the present moment; consequently, it weakens you into thinking that you are progressing or better preparing yourself for whatever the future holds in this process of worry, but all it does is bring more suffering to your body and designing non-existing images in your mind. This is full-blown ego.
In those moments of worry and anxiety, redirect your mind to the present moment by doing something which can occupy your mind, perhaps art or entertainment as examples; for if the mind is occupied on the present moment, on what is actually happening, then there is no room for worry.
“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure (free of worry in this case), joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” ~ Buddha.
