This Video About Worry Will Really Make You Think

“Can you allow your mind to be quiet?”

Once you’ve learned to think you can’t stop. And an enormous number of people devote their lives to keeping their minds busy and feel extremely uncomfortable with silence.”

If that sounds familiar, take a moment to really listen to what Watts has to say.

  1. Listened to the video.. so many get in that vicious circle… even me at times.. that’s why I often try to detach.. not always successfully I will freely admit.. but you need to break the cycle of what haunts your mind.. And I was worrying too much about things I had no control over.. ( wars and the suffering of children for one ).. Sometimes we have to just concentrate on the things we do have control over.. That is lifting ones thoughts to caring and loving those closer to home.. And sending our thoughts of compassion and Love is all we can do…

    Breathing in deep and clearing our mind to know we are all here on our paths for a reason.. even those who have chosen the more difficult routes..

    Bless you.. xxx Enjoy your week Horty xox

    • In my own words …. my mind doesn’t shut up!! Mainly when I go try to go to sleep. Detaching for me is hard …. I think there’s a wireless connection between me, the cell, the ipad, the PC! LOL … I do try sometimes. I can relate to this video a lot.

      Bless you too, Sue …. hugs!!!
