Ever wonder what would happen if you gave up the addiction to worry?
“If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever. ”
~Dalai Lama XIV~
Many masters have taught that worry is a waste of your precious energy. Live today consciously, mindfully attend to your tasks, be responsive rather than reactive and allow tomorrow to take care of itself.
When you place your full attention on the present moment and do one task at a time, it drops from your consciousness. There is no need to carry additional thought or worry about it. Worry arises only when something is left unaccomplished or we know that we have rushed through a task in order to get to the next thing.
To break the addiction, focus on doing one thing at a time – fully and completely. Your conscious focus will slow down your concept of time, everything will get completed, typically with greater accuracy than when it is rushed. Practice extreme alignment with the Now. You’ll discover the ease and grace which comes from living a Zen life.
Today my intention is to be present and do what needs to be done.
