Worries Are Like Clouds that Pass Through the Sky

Clouds

Do you worry sometimes? Well, this is a silly question, since everybody worries sometimes, some more, some less.

What are worries? They are just thoughts that pass through the mind. They are not facts. They are not the truth. They have no reality. They are like a mental game of asking, “What if…”, and nothing more.

Look at the clouds that pass through the sky. They are made of vapor, and they change form as they move through the sky. They hide part of the sky or all the sky, and sometimes they hide the sun. However, this is only temporary. Sooner or later they move on, allowing the sun to send its rays down again.

Worries, which are actually thoughts, are like the clouds. They pass through the mind, hide reason, common sense and our aims and goals, and if you don’t hold to them, they go away, making place for other worries.

Do You Read the Newspaper While Traveling by Train or Bus?

Newspapers

A few days ago, I traveled by train out of town in the morning. The train was very crowded. All the seats were taken, and a lot of passengers, including me, were standing.

When I looked around, I noticed a strange sight. Almost everyone on the train was reading a newspaper, the passengers who were sitting, as well as the passengers who were standing. Everyone was engrossed in reading the newspaper, nobody looking around, or through the windows,

It seemed as if all the people were unconnected to the surrounding world. It looked as if everyone was living in another world, unaware of what was happening around them.

Let’s discuss what was actually happening.

The people on the train were reading a newspaper. Many news items and articles in the newspapers are negative news. Not that there aren’t good things happening on the planet, but since negative news are sensational and awaken emotions, they sell better. Therefore, you find a lot of news about disasters and problems in the newspapers.

Icy Slope

Imagine you’re on a solo backpacking expedition in the arctic! You’re hiking uphill in the subzero whipping wind, with a 50-pound pack of survival supplies on your back. The route is inclining steeper and STEEPER, and through the blur of snowy wind you can see the outlines of giant snowdrifts forming in your path. The elements seem to be against you. You FEEL frozen in place, as if you cannot take another step!

Have you ever felt like this… completely overwhelmed by life’s circumstances?

Sometimes life can feel like a treacherous backpacking expedition. Even a mounting to-do list can snowball into an avalanche in your mind and leave you feeling powerless-IF you let it.

I know I have been in that moment before. The deadlines, to-do lists, and various pieces of life have piled up. I have found myself sitting down and thinking, What do I do next? What is next, what is next?

Creating Positive changes in Your Life with Energy Psychology

Energy PsychologyWe all want to change things in our lives. I have not met anyone who does not have this desire.

We are all looking for something whether that be a better job, a bigger home, a newer car, the right partner, better or new friends, more money, resolving emotional difficulties, moving forward with our lives in a positive way, overcoming upset, dealing with health problems… the list goes on!

The great thing about where we are in our development as a species is that we are starting to realise that if we have problems and things that we want to change in our lives, we have to fix what is stopping us from being able to create it in the first place.

One of the great phrases that is currently used is “your outer world is a reflection of your inner world”. So in other words, whatever you don’t like “out there” can all be effectively changed by healing the negativity that is within you.
