A good definition of worry would be, imagination of the worst possible outcomes of future in a particular situation. Such negative situations weaken us and create fear in our physical self. If we ask someone why do you worry ? The answer would be, it is important to worry as we need to think of the possible worst situations coming in the future. If we don’t think of the different possible negative outcomes, how will we prepare for them?
But these are false beliefs. Worry is simply an incorrect and fruitless creation. It is wrong use of positive and constructive capacity of our mind, which instead of empowering our intellect, weakens it.
Preparing for future is important and necessary, but very often while doing that we enter the territory of worry. This leaves us defeated and weakened. Instead we should prepare ourself in advance for the future situations. This preparation can be done without unnecessary thoughts of worry.
On the other hand imagining positive outcomes or results will have a double effect of not only keeping the negative thoughts away from us, but will also attract the positive results towards us. We should not attach the possible negative results, even to the minutest extent, otherwise the possibility of future positivity reduces.
The belief of worry enters into our mind since childhood and it keeps getting strengthened from our life experiences. In this way we are caught in this vicious circle of worry👉negative situations 👉worry.
So, now we need to change our belief to “ it’s not good to worry”. Once we do that, there is no guarantee that negative situations will not arrive in our life because we have performed negative actions in our past and present birth, which needs to be settled. But yes, the extent of negative situations will be minimised. And even if they come, they will bid good bye sooner, if we have a worry free conscience.
