My Karma Is Worry
Worry has been with me all my life. This worry isn’t overwhelming; it’s just seeing possible consequences of an action or inaction. Things have to be ‘repaired’, but which one first? Should I write, or not write? Will anyone understand what I’m trying to say?
All through this lifetime of worry, there been this observation taking place that is separate from the worry. I later this found to be consciousness. It was always there, and I realised that this consciousness is, in essence, pure and uncontaminated.
I no longer worry about my worries; they’re part of my baggage, and consciousness is happy with that because it is aware of it, and shows concern. This concern turns the thought that worry is bad karma into good karma.
“Always look on the bright side of life.”
– Eric Idle
“Some things in life are bad;
They can really make you mad.
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you’re chewing on life’s gristle,
Don’t grumble, give a whistle
And this’ll help things turn out for the best
Always look on the bright side of life …”
