Stop worrying. It never helped anyone, and never will. How could it? Worry is the ego’s number one lie and strategy to prove why we shouldn’t trust life. “Things would get never get unless I worry enough”. “I’m so worried, will someone pay attention to me?” And my favorite – “I love you so much – I can’t stop worrying about you”. Have a heart for this self-destructive affliction of being human. Start by opening your heart 2 the breath of the life that’s sustaining you. Just do it, and don’t think about it too much, because you’ll find all the excuses in the world why you should continue to worry. I think of worry as the internal self-imposed hell of this life, since I don’t believe in hell after life. As a veteran worrier I know how many moments of precious energy I can spend obsessing about something that could happen in the future, or that happened in the past, and the negative meaning I’m giving to it which is consuming my energy like a vulture – Ugh!
Worry is not easy to change, and I’m not even sure that it can be changed. But like any addiction, worry can be managed, transformed & healed one day at a time. You can have a heart for your worries, and also laugh hysterically about them. I particularly worry about what people think of me & can easily interpret a lack of response, a tone of voice or a gesture – as an attack, and then worry about what it means about me. It’s so neurotic & crazy & embarrassing, but it’s a part of me that I have had to learn to accept and have compassion for. It’s as if something in my brain has been wired like that. I learned however that when I notice that I’m worrying, I can open my heart to the breath in the moment, breathe with more ease around it, move with more grace, make it sacred and celebrate. What I’m making sacred is taking care of myself. Breathing love and transforming the hell of worry & fear of the the future, to the heavenly joy, oxygen & ease of now. So please HuBe, if you want to support me – love you & don’t worry about me. Transform worry, misery & oppression – to joy, oxygen & ease. Lets celebrate our MOJOE.
