How to stop the Addiction of Worry


For most, if not all us, the starting point is the belief in one’s self. Getting things done requires the will of self, self will-power or so we have been lead to believe.

In present times, willpower is an essential characteristic, particularly if one is to have it all. For arguments sake, let us accept as fact; the brain we have we under use.

At a conscious level, we see and we react. We respond to life, as it appears to be. The world in its various states of poverty, death, destruction, illness etc.  it is a world full with endless limitation.  It is against this backdrop that the conscious mind struggles, struggles to make sense of it, struggles to survive in it.

It is senseless to suggest that images do not have a significant impact on our senses particularly the emotions. Then, why create them?

Images our impressed on our minds. In other words an impression is imprinted upon the mind.

We must stop telling ourselves, that only some of us are creative. True, some of us are specifically talented when it come to artistic endeavour. But by nature we are creative beings, our often-limited ability to think as well as act, is a creative process. Tapping into the super conscious mind really enables this creativity. A few years ago Rhonda Byrne wrote a book called “The secret.” Upon reading it, it would change the reader and the reader would change their lives and maybe the world too. The reality, for most of us, the secret remained a secret. It was, one of the truly great marketing phenomenons of our time.

Are we not or have we not all been addicted to something.

To avoid pitfalls of worry such as depression, mental illness and above all suicide. One must be discerning and open-minded. The founders of Alcoholics Anonymous discovered this years ago. The success of AA is beyond remarkable. Are we not or have we not all been addicted to something.

Worry, is just another addiction. Before reading their 12-step programme, I always sensed a worldly disdain. Here is why. It is founded upon the accepting principles of powerlessness and surrender, both of which require the disavowal of ones self. It prescribes the acknowledgment of a greater or higher power. May be, they knew it back then or may be not. What they accessed was the super conscious mind.

Addicts struggle have with the programme, inclusive of the eventually successful ones. But here is the nub, the paradox. By giving up control you gain control. And isn’t that what you want. Isn’t it?

The Peak Life!
