The following key lessons are taken from 365 Days to Let Go. Use their insights to help you start stepping out of anxious thoughts and feelings...
There is no worry so great, no anxious rush for resolution so strong, that these terrible twins cannot be taken up, reduced, and returned to their basic nothingness by that mind brought back into its native quietude. Learning to be still is not just the remedy for our self-wrecking states, but proves to be their permanent cure.
If anxious thoughts and feelings had any power to help us reach some place in life where, finally, we'd be released from the pain of always feeling rushed... don't you think we'd have reached there by now!
If we want to understand why we feel troubled as we do, we need only "tune-in" to the parts of ourselves we're listening to. All the "sounds" of life are revelatory, but none are perfunctory; so, if we keep hearing discordant thoughts and feelings within us -- whose vibrations disturb us -- it isn't because life sings this song. Our unrest continues only because of an unseen interior choice, and to see the truth of this is to realize one of the great keys to the Kingdom of Heaven: as goes our attention, so comes our experience.
