Worry Clouds The Mind

Embrace the day,
it was created for you.
Sunrise begins it;
when sundown,
it’s through.

But in between,
you are free,
to gaze into that azul sky,
as those weeping nubes
float on by.

Spanish Translation

Abraza el día,
fue creado para ti.
El amanecer lo inicia;
cuando se pone el sol,
se termina.

Pero mientras tanto,
eres libre,
para contemplar el cielo celeste,
mientras esas preocupaciones
se alejan de ti.

How to Achieve True Confidence

“All human activity is prompted by desire. There is a wholly fallacious theory advanced by some earnest moralists to the effect that it is possible to resist desire in the interests of duty and moral principle. I say this is fallacious, not because no man ever acts from a sense of duty, but because duty has no hold on him unless he desires to be dutiful. If you wish to know what men will do, you must know not only, or principally, their material circumstances, but rather the whole system of their desires with their relative strengths.” Excerpt from The Four Desires Driving All Human Behavior

“Many painters are afraid of the blank canvas, but the blank canvas ‘is afraid’ of the truly passionate painter who dares—and who has once broken the spell of ‘you can’t’. Life itself likewise always turns towards one, an infinitely meaningless, discouraging, dispiriting blank side on which there is nothing, any more than on a blank canvas. But however meaningless and vain, however dead life appears, the man of faith, of energy, of warmth, and who knows something, doesn’t let himself be fobbed off like that. He steps in and does something, and hangs on to that, in short, breaks, ‘violates’.” Excerpt from Vincent van Gogh on Fear, Taking Risks, and How Making Inspired Mistakes Moves Us Forward

Commentary: Rumination is a thought processing disorder meaning that worrisome thoughts or even neutral thoughts are given excessive analysis by the host. As you may already suspect, rumination is actually quite common in both anxiety and depression. Similarly, it is also typically present in other mental health conditions such as phobias, Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

“Ignorance breeds fear. We fear those things we don’t understand. If we don’t put a lid on that fear and keep that fear in check, that fear in turn will breed hatred because we hate those things that frighten us. “If we don’t keep that hatred in check, that hatred in turn will breed destruction.” By: Daryl Davis

“When a man cannot introspectively confront his negative thoughts and emotions, he will always be conquered by them, communicating without composure and hurting all those whom he loves.” Quote paraphrased from “Battle Cry” By: Jason Wilson

“You already know enough. So do I. It is not knowledge we lack. What is missing is the courage to understand what we know and to draw conclusions.” By: Sven Lindqvist

“Beware of those who weep with realization, for they have realized nothing.” By: Carlos Casteñeda

“The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Bible, Deuteronomy 31:8

“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

“For just as rain and snow fall from heaven and do not return without watering the earth, making it bud and sprout, and providing seed to sow and food to eat, so My Word that proceeds from My Mouth will not return to Me void, but it will accomplish what I please, and it will prosper where I send it.” Isaiah 55:10-11
