There are more things likely to frighten or WORRY us than there are to crush us; we suffer more often in imagination than in reality. There is no need to be unhappy or to WORRY before the crises comes, the threat may never materialize. It becomes a senseless WORRY by throwing away our mental and emotional energies.
How often has the expected never come to pass. And if it does, then we should look forward to better things. Perhaps the bad time will come, perhaps not, in the meantime it has not. So look forward to better things. Sometimes the sword has been checked even at the victim’s throat.
The mind fashions, at times, false shapes of EVIL when there are no signs of any EVIL. It can be a fancy doubtful meaning, or a personal grudge to be more serious than it really is. In this content, let wisdom or sensibility assist you. We have to ALLEVIATE OUR WORRYS WITH HOPE
If we live with the ATTRIBUTES OF THE CIRCLE; COMPASSION, EMPATHY, RESPECT, GRATITUDE and WISDOM, we should not have fear or WORRIES in our HEART.

Appreciate when my practice helps me identify the beauty of this truth ~ for when I am in the moment, with each breath, there is no evidence of that which is worthy of worry. When I feel self-pity, I have an opportunity to remind myself that “it’s not about me” which lightens my heart and reminds me to be of service to others, thus no need to worry. And to not be forgotten, my gratitude is MUCH LONGER than that which I get caught up in worrying about. Carpe Diem and be FREE OF WORRY.
