The other day, I came across this quote from Swami Rama: “Nothing in this world is worth enough to worry about.”
We all have worries of some sort as we go through our day to day life. But when you look deeply into life, and you question the thoughts that come to your mind, you will notice that this is actually so true.
What is more important in life than life itself? Nothing is more important than life itself, and nothing is worth enough to lessen our experience of life.
And we are not getting anything out of worry, we are not solving any problem or avoiding any problem by worrying about it. If there is a problem, it is more logical to find a solution for it rather than to worry about it.
However, if your mind is untrained, it is natural for it to go to a worried state very often about things that might happen or might not happen in the future. This natural quality of your mind distracts you from being in the moment and enjoying the gift of life in this moment.
The good news is that you can easily train your mind to stay in the moment and lessen your worry and anxiety. The way to do that is through meditation. Meditation is an ancient method and a scientific approach to train your mind to stay focused. Research is increasingly proving the many benefits that meditation has in your wellbeing and in your life. Meditation decreases stress, lowers anxiety, fights depression, improves sleep, boosts immune system, lowers heart rate, increases focus, improves relationships, to name a few.
Add meditation to your daily routine and enjoy its positive effects in your life. And yes, you will, find that “nothing in this world is worth enough to worry about.”
