Worry Free Living – one of the 7 Secrets in how to be healthy

Worry Free Living – a key ingredient.

Ever Wonder to Yourself: How did I miss the boat again?

There are so many times when I wonder to myself – looking back – what the heck just happened?

Life is so full of distractions – and the “all consuming things” that do not matter – that we are often consumed by them as life goes by. We often miss key opportunities to change our life – or to seize a special moment – because we are so focused on all the things that didn’t matter in the first place.

Not unlike Mark Twain’s quote,

 “I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.”

But in that moment of distraction the very opportunity – the thing we were waiting for or looking into – passes us like a leaf bobbing down the river silently floating past us, unnoticed.

Maybe emotions flare – or worry creeps in – or the fear of loss – or peer scrutiny – supersede the very thing that really did matter for a brief moment in time, rendering it yet another unrealized potential in the graveyard of possibilities.

And when that happens, what remains?

Is it the thing that mattered so much? Or is it the realization that we’re standing on the dock wondering how the boat left without us on board?

AGAIN…

Recently I heard a talk by a very inspiring motivational and religious speaker about the 7 Secrets To Living A Happy Life.

And one of those secrets was worry free living.

He described – as absolutely essential – the need TO STOP WORRYING.

In his argument and presentation he insisted that if we have real faith and live that faith, it is impossible to worry because the Creator has already provided whatever we have asked for.

We may not have received it yet. But it’s coming.

The key point he made about this was: 

If we really believe that our Creator provides everything, how can we be worried?

 So if we are worrying, it must be for one of two reasons:

•    self created junk that is not in alignment with our beliefs that we are projecting out from within ourselves or

•    we do NOT truly believe or have faith.

In either case, he said (actually he yelled) to STOP IT, STOP IT, STOP IT.

There is no good that ever came from worry. There was never a problem solved by it. Worry makes us sick, literally. There is – in short – no intelligent reason to worry. In a way, worry free living is a command for us to obey. In a round about way, it is telling us to have faith.

The sad part is we do this over and over again in life. And we know better.

Worry often leads to making decisions that may not actually reflect the things that we do believe in and that may even temporarily blind us from our faith.

Regardless, we either have faith – and do believe – or we do not.  We can not be and do both at the same time. It is impossible. They can not exist at the same moment in time.

And that which we wish to manifest in our lives – and the amazing abundance that is our God given right – will not manifest if we do not truly believe that it will.

Wallace Wattles in his 1910 book, “The Science of Getting Rich,” says,

 “It is impossible for an anxious person, a worried one, or a fearful one to perceive truth; all things are distorted and thrown out of their proper relations by such mental states and those who are in them can not read the thoughts of God.

Above all things, see to it that you not hold malice or enmiy toward anyone.”

And later…

“Behind your clear vision must be the purpose to realize it; to bring it out in tangible expression.

And behind this purpose must be an invincible and unwavering FAITH that the thing is already yours; that it is ‘at hand’ and you only have to take possession of it.”

Napoleon Hill said a similar thing later on in “Think and Grow Rich,”

 “Whatever the mind of man can conceive of, AND BELIEVE, it can achieve.”

How can there be worry if there is true faith in the right outcome?

That it to say, if you really believe in anything, what can possibly be the good out of doubting the outcome ? Worry is based in doubt and the thought of scarcity and lack.

Abundance does not coexist with lack. In our model of health, a basic premise assumes an abundance that includes physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and financial balance.

There is such inequity in worry and fear based thinking and such equity in abundance.

Worry Free Living – a key element in how to be healthy.
