How to NEVER be Worried Again
One of the most common and destructive daily habits that many people get caught up in, certainly must be the habit of worrying. And that’s exactly it, a habit. While habits can be notoriously difficult to break, it certainly isn’t impossible!
Alan Watts, a British-American philosopher best known for interpreting and popularising Eastern Philosophy for Western audiences, suggests a few ways to do exactly that. It’s a bit spiritual, but his analogy makes sense.
In the same way as a muddy turbulent pool quiets itself when left alone, you have to know how to leave your mind alone. It will quiet itself. Alan Watts.
Sure, nothing revolutionary has been said here, and I suppose it’s similar to the ”Don’t take life to seriously” philosophy, yet, Watts still provides a ‘soothing story line’ to remind us to give our minds a break, take a deep breath and ‘let it be’, even if it is just for a little while.
Ok, before we get back to worrying about pointless stuff 😉 one more bonus quote…
Worry is like a rocking chair: it gives you something to do but never gets you anywhere. Erma Bombeck
