I was afraid of a lot of things that never happened.
Worry is good for a few things I suppose: Creating physical stress in the body, shitting our pants on the bus by accident or making ourself feel like we have some sort of magic power over uncontrollable circumstances.
Worry is fear.
Worry accomplishes nothing but can make us feel like some sort of progress is happening. It is a form of negative prayer and can actually impact a situation in an undesirable way. The field is neutral and we can charge it with any kind of electricity that we choose.
What if, the world was exactly the way it was supposed to be and that everything was running smoothly? What if, this was true despite chaos, corruption and strife?
Could you accept this? Why not?
Would you rather have worry or peace?
Choosing peace is a big responsibility. We have to be diligent. It means that we do everything that we can to accept the world, make it a better place and help ease each others burdens. After that comes one of my favorite sayings: Let go and let God.
Ask yourself this: What has worrying ever accomplished in my life? The answer is simple and astounding.
For the record, I hope no one intentionally shits their pants on the bus.
