The Power of Being Selfless

I read a quote today by Wayne Dyer “Worrying doesn’t take away tomorrow’s troubles, it takes away today’s peace.”

How much of our time and energy is spent and wasted on worrying? I’ve started to become very aware of a heavy dark feeling that has invaded me for some time.  Just recently I’ve realized it has simply been the energy of worrying .  I fret over details, people and events to which I have no control over.  My mind will continually play on and on with thoughts of doubt, fears and worries, unless I consciously stop and focus on the now.

Think about it….how much do we really have control over? And does worrying change or solve anything?  It absolutely does not!  It  is a complete waste of energy and time and it is a mind trap!  As I’ve become aware of this, I’ve been discovering ways to overcome and avoid the trap.  I know that there are many ways and many tools, and I would love to hear what you have discovered.  This is what I’ve learned so far:

1. Realize that the only person you have control over is you. Remember this and adjust your thought process and beliefs.

2. God is over all and when we invite Him, he will guide and direct the things we cannot see and that we do not have control over.  He will speak peace to our hearts and minds.   As we align our will with His will for us, and commit to be determined in serving Him, we can have confidence that he will help provide all that we need.

3. Reach higher! Strive to live in a way that our thoughts and energy are centered in serving and helping others, fulfilling our divine mission, and creating a better environment for ourselves and those around us.

When I have shifted my focus from me, me , me, to  asking “who can I help today? “,  great power and peace have entered and sustained me.  It is the power of selflessness and it’s so freeing! When I ask myself this question, it gets me out of my mind trap.  Then I start reaching into my heart and searching and I open up to God to guide me.  I begin to live from faith, love and peace instead of fear, worry and regret.  It is absolutely magical!

So…..Go create magic in your life!….. and leave the worries, fears and doubts at the Lord’s feet!

  1. Jen,

    I love your comments. I really don’t have anything to add from what you have already said. I also have learned that worry doesn’t do any good. Most of the things we worry about we cannot change and even if we could we would miss out on lessons learned by going thru it. Also having faith in God also helps to know that he has a plan for you and if we put our trust in Him we need not worry. I also believe that fear is created by ourselves. There are many things to be afraid can happen or might happen but remembering that God is over all gives me hope for the things that I am fearful of. I always say a prayer in my heart in times of worry and fear and I can feel the Lord strengthening me. If we pour our hearts out to God he will re-fill us with happiness and His spirit. But first we have to pour out!
