A wealthy man was always full of anxiety and worry. Though he had everything the world could give, his heart was not happy. He had a servant who knew what it was to trust in the Lord.
One day, when he found his master worrying himself to death, he said to him, “Master, is it not true that the Lord ran this world before you were born into it?”
“Yes!” said the master.
“Is it not true, that the Lord will run this world after you leave it?”
Again the master said, “Yes!”
The servant replied saying, “Then, won’t it be wise to let the Lord run the world while you are in it?
We have made a habit of worrying and consider that as a normal thing and if we don’t have anything to worry at all we become uncomfortable! We feel it is not a normal situation, something is amiss!
Worry gives a small thing a big shadow. If worrying can increase your wealth, go ahead and worry. If worrying can cure your sickness, go ahead and worry. If worrying can prolong your life, go ahead and worry. If worrying can bring happiness, go ahead and worry. Worrying doesn’t lead to anything except wasting our precious time and energy. Our kids come with their own praarabdha (destiny) and their lives will proceed according to their praarabdha. In fact we should not worry about anything.
The faculty of imagination is for creativity.
It should not be misused for worrying.
Whatever is destined not to happen will never happen, try as you may. Whatever is destined to happen will anyway happen, do what you may to prevent it. This is certain.
