“The path to the Truth is a labor of the heart, not of the head. Make your heart your primary guide! Not your mind. Meet, challenge, and ultimately prevail over your nafs (false ego) with your heart. Knowing your false ego will lead you to the Knowledge of God.“
When I looked back at my ‘worst-case-scenarios’ I noticed how much anxiety I had always lived. It is a bit funny, because I never considered myself a worrier. Well, apparently, I am one. My anxieties are mostly around feeling overwhelmed by the ‘burdens’ I place on myself. I don’t seem to understand the concept of saying ‘no’. 🙂 My anxiety is around ‘not being able to handle’ what comes. As I was sitting with my fears and worries, I recalled: God is my Partner, I shall not want, and remembered how supported I am.
I am still not able to create best-case-scenarios just yet but when I notice anxiety emerging, I can recall “The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want.” from Psalm 23
What have you experienced?
Please note, that God for me is not an old guy with white beard. The Divine, the Lord, God, the ‘Universe’, the Higher Self, Spirit I use interchangeably with the meaning of a higher Loving Entity that encompasses everything.
