In your life, your mind is constantly at work. And the major task of the mind is to keep you away from the present moment where your consciousness resides, which is full of love, bliss and intelligence. You can say the life is a war between the sat and the sat or the truth of your soul consciousness and falsity/illusion of what it is not.
In this context, what are worries?
In life, you are constantly facing different challenges that aim to elevate you to your higher self. These challenges are one step higher than the evolution of your consciousness till date. In the process of surpassing this difficulty level, you open up yourself to more wisdom. It is the mind that tries it’s best to stop you from reaching the level of wisdom through connection with the present moment. For this, it uses its weapon called ‘Worry’. While the solution offers only one possibility; the absence of it, is hundreds of possibilities. These hundreds of possibilities of what could happen are called ‘worries’ in which your mind puts you into illusions, leading you to imbibe emotions of anger, anxiety, frustration, hopelessness and the like. When you constantly brood on your worries, you also create them because what you focus on, you manifest.
Below are the methods by which you can shed off the worries:
Worries happen because you don’t know. You need to see different emotions that the worry is causing you and release them in awareness. Once the clouds of emotions have been cast off, you can see the challenges clearly and the solution pops up. The solution could be finding an intelligent way you maneuver yourself through the problem or a powerful way to avoid it altogether. Or using your creativity and communication to take the problem to the next level. Or you can use your higher divine self to rise above the problem.
Detachment: One necessary pre-requisite to avoid worrying is detachment. You worry about the people and the things you are attached to. Releasing the attachment or the Moha to the situation or person frees your vision to see the truth of the situation and hence find a solution.
Trust in life: You worry because you don’t trust what is happening. You worry because you define this situation from your individual perspective that is based on survival instinct rather than spiritual growth. While for you getting success or preserving what you have would be more important; for life what matters is the awakening of your consciousness. Opening up to trust in life and believing in Her as a nurturing mother would help you ease off worries.
Acceptance & Surrender: Unless you accept the present moment, you cannot bring it into your consciousness and find a solution. Acceptance also means taking full responsibility of the problem. It also means to awaken the inner resolve to see the truth. Surrender on the other hand is the most divine truth and once you do it, it puts the complete onus of giving the problem as well as finding a solution to life itself. Through surrender, you become a medium for God to work through you.
