The mind is very fragile, it balances between two polarities, the negative and the positive, you must always Seek to find the balance, or you become a slave to the conditions that surround you. Life has many ups and downs, you must learn to take defeat with acceptance, just as you gladly accept a victory. You need not fight with your troubles, you need to understand them, a lesson is being taught and you will gladly learn. The fly becomes more entrapped in the spiders web the more it struggles, you must learn that freedom, does not come from the struggle, it comes from accepting the situation as it is, only then can you find the solution, when you are utterly calm with the situation.
When the outcome has lost its importance, when the anger and resentment has faded, the answers will shine clearly before your eyes, the answers will open like a flower to the morning sun, be patient and let go of your worries, they control you more than you control them, while you fight with them, there will only be one winner, and that will not be you.
The mind can become a prison for those who do not let go of anxieties, they will fade into the Distance, when you understand the negative power they have over you. It is like holding a hot coal and attempting to cool it down, you will not cool it while you hold it, you will burn your hands, you must distance yourself from it, then you can work out how to cool it down. In the same way you need to distance yourself from your worries, how can you deal with them how can you find Peace while you hold them in your mind. They are burning you so hotly, you cannot think clearly, you see nothing but the problem, because you feel the problem too intently.
Free yourself, you do not need to go through life, worrying about every single thing, most of these problems will take care of themselves, give the universe a chance to resolve the problems for you, things often look brighter after a nights sleep, and that is the attitude you need to carry forwards with the problems that surround you.
Peace of mind will come, it is this you must seek first, then everything in your life will drop into place, because you fight no more. When the battle is truly over, understanding will rule in its place.
Remember, nothing is your enemy, if you see things this way, you have learned to see life poorly, you need to look again with a mind that resides in peace, then and only then, will you find the happiness you so seek.
