Worry is just about the worst form of mental activity there is-next to hate, which is deeply self-destructive. Worry is pointless. It is wasted mental energy. It also creates bio-chemical reactions, which harm the body, producing everything from indigestion to coronary arrest, and a multitude of things in between. Health will improve almost at once when worrying takes a back seat.
Fear is worry magnified. Worry, hate, fear-together with their off shoots: anxiety, bitterness, impatience, unkindness, being judgmental, and condemnation-all attack the body at the cellular level. It is impossible to have a healthy body under these conditions.
What you most fear is what will most plague you. Fear will draw it to you like a magnet. Thought is creative. Fear attracts like energy. Emotion is the power, which attracts. That which you fear strongly, you will experience. Invite yourself to move past that. Try a new response. Try laughter.
You see, suffering has nothing to do with events, but with one’s reaction to them. What’s happening is merely what’s happening. How you feel about it is another matter.
Embarrassment is the response of a person who still has an ego investment in how others see him/her…. Neal Donald Walsh
