THE ANTIDOTE FOR WORRY
The way of Oneness is the way to happiness. The way of manyness leads to worries. I am the only One without a second; so I am eternally happy. You are separate from your Self; so you always worry. To you, what you see is absolutely real; to me it is absolutely false. I alone am real and my marjee (will) governs the cosmic Illusion.
It is the truth when I say that the waves do not roll or the leaves do not move without my will. The moment the intensity of your faith in my will reaches the apex, you bid adieu to worry for good. Then, all that you suffered and enjoyed in the past, together with all that you may experience in the future, will be to you the most loving and spontaneous expression of my will; and, as the lover places the will of the Beloved above all else, there is nothing which can cause worry.
Live more and more in the present which is ever beautiful and which really stretches far beyond the limits of the past and the future. If at all you want to worry, let your only worry be: how to remember me constantly. This is worth worrying about, because it is the antidote for worry.
Think of me more and more, and all your worries will dwindle into nothing, for they are really nothing, and my will works out to awaken this in you and in all.
