Don't Worry about Worry!#EPOM

The whole point of the saying," Be in the moment," is only because we only have this moment.

Because of our lack of sensitivity it appears as if there is a future and because it comes around so quickly, generally speaking, we delude ourselves. For the past to have any reality at all, we need to keep our memory intact because in fact it has no reality and is only present in us as thought.

It is only because of our unconsciousness and almost somnambulistic state that we think of future as future because in fact it is only our thought of the future in the present moment. This moment is all we have. As a consequence of our obsession with the past and the future we almost have no contact with reality, which of course IS the present moment.

The same exists about the future and all our dreaming and imagination; it is said that "the future does not exist as the future; it exists as imagination in the present moment." Osho

How is it possible that we have given so much thought and put so much attention on the future and the past, that we have completely lost track of the beauty and immensity of the present moment, which is here right now. This moment is all we have.

The thing with worry is that because of our self condemnation and our inclination to find faults in ourselves, any worries we might have seem magnified and out of proportion to the occasion. This fault finding is one of the greatest problems. It is one of the greatest problems because if we find faults in ourselves the implication is that we should improve. This idea of improvement will propel us into the future and away from the challenge of the moment and what the moment calls for. This moment is all we have.

Every situation can be used and not only that can be used in a creative way and even the psychologists have noted that a person who is less prone to self talk and self-destructive thoughts is more capable of coping better and taking the necessary and appropriate action to resolve the so-called worry or problem- and in a far more creative way.

The point is that if we dwell on such a long past and such a vast future, the possibility of coping with our present worries will be more difficult. On the other hand if we look to see what needs to be done right now the chances are that we can all come up with the necessary solutions or resolution to the "problem" at hand.

This moment is all we have.

Hi Sam, Great blog :) My mum always said concentrate on what's happening and not on what might happen, then you can change things if you want to, but, if you concentrate on what might happen then that will then change you!

Don't Worry about Worry!

My first thought about my use of the word "predatory" was that I might have been influenced by the fact that I've just finished reading "The Tenderness of Wolves" - a fascinating book by Stef Penney. However, on deeper contemplation and looking up the meaning of the word I realise that I am quite predatory about my "worry energy". I absorbed the pattern of "worry energy" as a way of being in the world from my mum who worries about everything. I'm not telling tales or being accusatory of my mum - I love her to bits, but she will willingly admit she worries all the time. I now regard worrying as just one of the many strategies, absorbed primarily from my mum, that I adapted for living life. I have befriended my "worry energy" and I do pounce on it, treating "it" (in the moment it occurs) as an intuitive, not yet clear signal that there is something I may need to address. Often, when I consciously explore within myself and examine what's behind the worry, I can often refocus and convert that same energy into positive actions that suit that particular circumstance. Sometimes however, old habits die hard and I still catch myself in the grip of some worry or other, using a lot of mental energy and then what a relief when I realise ... ah what I thought was wolf at the door is really just a cat!

Don't Worry about Worry!

I really like your comments Sam and they reminded me of three phrases - two that I grew up with as my Mum always said them to her children and one that I stumbled upon and just love. Today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday and all is well Don't trouble trouble until trouble troubles you and The past is history, the future a mystery - this moment is a gift, that's why it's called the present. I think they sum up your article quite nicely Sam :) Isobel McEwan Think Global Innovation Management

Thank you for the post Sam, it's true. Besides having just this moment, no matter what happens, "this too will pass". If we let it, that is.

Don't Worry about Worry!

Of course it takes moving away from the social conditioning that has been laid down all through our lives, it takes creating new neural networks in our brains and establishing new beliefs, which takes the focus of a warrior. I remember through my evolvement years ago, my head physically hurting! lol! The initial step of 'conscious creating' can take practice, though I am not sure I agree with the constant and predatory, as people focus on their desires, on that new inner confidence, it naturally causes our energy frequency to raise and by looking out for our points of appreciation each day we naturally begin to live in the moment, as energy will always call us to the highest frequency to bring alignment. :) Edel Live with passion and purpose Path of the Peaceful Warrior Edel O'Mahony UK's Leading Expert in Energetic Communications Change Your Thinking - Transforming Your Life

Aaaagh ... if only knowing the fact that "living in the moment" was enough to stop the worrying just like that - we would have no need for personal development specialists and/or therapists. Living in the moment more often than not, takes conscious, constant almost predatory practice to interrupt autonomous historical ways of thinking. Its a personal evolving process.

Thank you for your blog Sam, and I agree wholeheartedly. Sometimes the 'problem' is exacerbated by the constant worry about the future and the past, so the present is lost.

PS... re the future... As I think about the world of invention and innovation, some of the most successful entrepreneurs and teams that I facilitated, as an innovation consultant, were those who were most grounded in the present and from there had not only the ability to dream and step into a new future but the energy to make it happen in the present.

Beautiful, Sam... Thank you! I've come to understand that our problems are our greatest gifts. They hold a message about what's trying to emerge in us... the next piece of our potential as human beings. Love that you talk about being in this moment now... for it is all we truly have... the rest is fantasy. So to work with our problem right now as it is now and be open and creative with what it can teach us now puts worry into another and far far lesser league! Warmly...

Don't Worry about Worry!

Thanks Sam, you have described the human condition and our objective.... to be fully present! It explains why people have difficulty with the principles from books like the 'Secret', being able to sustain a constant focus on an objective, without distraction. Most models to help stay in the present and appreciate it involve managing oneself to be present. To develop a new habit takes 30 days to establish it and some 60-90 days to fully embed it... the book 'Mind Chi' refers. However, the act of managing oneself, involves a separate consciousness observing the self. For me, fully 'Being' oneself is the objective. A room full of 200 people when asked the question... if 10 out of 10 describes being fully present, how close to 10 are you on average, will give scores ranging from 1-9, sometimes a minus factor. How to recover our lost and missing Self is the question... finding the parts of self left in the past and projected into the future is the key... these parts are not an illusion and they fuel negativity and signal their presence, prompting unwanted behaviour. 'The Missing Peace, the advanced seeker's guide to wholeness 2003', 'Black Holes in the Internal Universe 1999' and my new book (in preparation)....'Who Stole my Now?!... refer. At 64, i recovered a 2 year old self and a 65 and a half year old self!! I so enjoy today!

Yes I experience this often, also am aware of other 'life experience i have had through the physical earth's history. As energy we are immortal, it is only our phtsical bodies that are temporary, they are like Avatars. So in our present life experience we are conscious of 'all' we truly are, yet are living this unique life, byappreciating from every moment, it is this that helps to keep us in high vibrational frequency. :) Edel Live with passion and purpose Path of the Peaceful Warrior Edel O'Mahony UK's Leading Expert in Energetic Communications Change Your Thinking - Transforming Your Life

Don't Worry about Worry!

Andreas, Déjà-vu is where we 'tap into' energy . As we experience in these physical lifetimes this information is relayed back to Universal energy , like a motherboard being plugged back into a mainframe! We as energy, have the ability to tap into this mainframe at any time and access this information. We as energy, when the life in the physical body is finished, re-emerges back into Universal energy with the experiences gained from that lifetime. Energy will come back into a new physical body and so there is a constant cycle of experiences happening and being 'uploaded' to energy. This is why we can experience having been in a place or situation before. :) Edel

Don't Worry about Worry!

Sam, Absolutely agree. We as energy are have life experiences through these physical bodies. The past is gone and was only there to provide contrast and points of appreciation, there is no future as we create it in every nano second through the resonating frequencies our cells emit from our beliefs. In opening up to true abundance, it is being present in every moment, appreciating our day to day experiences. We create what will be a 'future' by being grateful for our desires as if they are already here, once we 'believe' this to be fact we resonate from this frequency and so attract the same frequency back to use in experiences and opportunities. :) Edel Live with passion and purpose Path of the Peaceful Warrior Edel O'Mahony UK's Leading Expert in Energetic Communications Change Your Thinking - Transforming Your Life
