You are stressed, that’s awful, because of your job, your family, your manager, something you read, anything. Stress! Help!
One day you are so stressed out that you begin to search the entrance. I mean… If you are stressed, the stress probably enters, penetrates, comes INTO you, right?
By the ears? Nope. Your belly button, maybe? Nahhhh!…
How does it work?
Well… It works. Until you realize :
YOU make stress. Your own BRAIN builds, makes, produces, manufactures stress.
Bummer and crap!
Happily, the day you understand that you become a Master Zen.
A stressful phrase, guy, situtation or event appears in front of you, and, how magic! : you don’t secrete stress, you just DON’T.
(well, you can stress if the werewolf is chasing you in the night, Okey)
You could swallow this little quote from Krishnamurti, then :
OBSERVE WITHOUT ANY CONCLUSION
This is a good secret.
Things appears, shit happens (or hits the fan, as you say, I like this joyful idiom), people around you are NOT steady, they are alive and surprising. Watch, don’t stress, be calm, dance. Amor Fati!
Thanks for reading!
PS : You know what a werewolf is, right? So, as a French ESL, can I invent other “weres”? Like a weresheep or a wereswan, a weregrasshopper or a wereguineapig?
