Recently an encounter with several people who were angry and fearful brought a clear question to my mind. How did they allow their thoughts to cause such anger, fear and discomfort?
This may challenge you but - all fear and worry are self-created. Your thinking generates them. Yes there are occasional situations (a train coming as your car stalls on the tracks) in which fear is a natural response but almost all fear is born within your thoughts.
The opposite of fear, worry and anxiety is being at peace, being open, observing, and trusting. Changing your thoughts can bring peace, allow you to be open and just observe what is going on.
Not getting caught up in the drama of the moment is such a relief. Try trusting things will work out and watch how they do.
Ultimately it is very liberating to come to the awareness that you are fully responsible for what you think and how you feel. Yes, blame is very tempting but really it is just an avoidance of responsibility.
You might wonder - how do I take back my power and stop pointing outward when things are not how I want them to be? How do I bring more consciousness to this process?
