When we have a situation or a problem we can’t resolve, the very first thing we do habitually is ask our mind for a solution. We continually ask our mind, when we know our mind doesn’t have the answer. Not getting an answer, we already knew wasn’t there, we go into beating ourselves up. We disapprove of ourselves. “What an idiot I am.” “How could I be so dumb?”
Then, we ask our mind again. The entire cycle repeats itself over and over ad infinitum. Yes, ad infinitum, because we never let go of asking our mind and beating ourselves up, all the days and years of our lives.
It’s called worry. It’s a very negative habit that steals our peace of mind.
And, yet, we do it. We do it because we’re on automatic. When we’re on automatic we’re not discriminating, meaning we don’t see what’s going on. We don’t see how we’re hurting ourselves. We don’t see the damage we’re doing to ourselves
A discriminating question is, where did we ever get the idea worry ever helped us or solved anything? Our mind tricked us on that one. Somehow we accepted the impression from our mind that we could solve a problem or fix a situation by worrying about it.
When we worry, we’re holding the problem in mind, therefore supporting and strengthening the problem. We’re telling our creative mind to give us more of it.
Isn’t it time to stop worrying? It’s time. From this day forward, from this moment forward, let’s resolve, let’s discriminate. Let’s notice we’re worrying, we’re asking our mind and we aren’t getting anywhere. Let’s resolve from this moment to make a decision. No more worrying.
Getting happy is just a decision. It begins by seeing what we’re doing to ourselves and ending it. Letting it go. Wringing our hands is not the answer. Releasing is the answer. We let go of asking our mind. We let go of beating ourselves up. We let go of disapproving of ourselves.If we decide to be all loving all the time, we can live happily, healthily, and wealthily ever after. Get bigger than the mind. Decide to face problems and issues by applying love.
Try it! It works!
