Free your mind from unnecessary fears. Your beliefs can indeed have an unnatural effect on your expectations of reality. Sometimes, you can worry too much about imagined fears.
“Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.” — Bertrand Russell
I believe we have to learn to balance these things out, still remain naturally concerned about your live and the world around you, but not at the expense of realistic thinking.
Free your mind from unnecessary fears. One of the best ways to reduce stress is to accept the things that you cannot control. Realistic thinking helps reduce the fear of not being in total control. After all, it’s impossible to control every single aspect of your life. So why feed your fears?
Eckhart Tolle, said: we can all escape the prison of our own minds by recognizing that what we think is our whole life is actually comprised of a conceptual reality of thoughts, views, opinions and knowledge.
This reality is what we regard as ‘a mind-created false sense of self that will soon come to an end.’ Instead, we can learn to embrace the stillness inside us.
Sometimes, your thoughts may prevent you from discovering this inner peace by producing fear simulations all the time.
What you need to do is to be more mindful of these fearful feelings and learn to transcend them. One effective way is to try to mentally observe them as something separate from the reality of your present situation.
You can also do things that make you happy more often. Show gratitude for the good things in life, and focus more on the present moment to reduce fears.
Happiness shouldn’t be determined by what happens to you entirely, but also by the choices you make. Making happier choices is a liberating way to live by freeing your mind from unnecessary fears. It helps you understand that happiness is something you can learn to control.
