Why so serious ? – Part 2

Thank you Saniaa. A brilliant blogger and poet, don’t miss her post.

This post is following my Post “Why so serious?” A brilliant comment from Saniaa.

How being serious/worry affects our activity/work?

Here goes …
A very uplifting post.
Worry is what annoyingly gnaws away at people as they try to work, enjoy life, and relax. This is why most of us lack sufficient free time to escape to some mountaintop temple to follow our bliss! For this it is so important to live in the present. Life unfolds in the present. But so often, we let the present slip away, allowing time to rush past unobserved and unseized, and squandering the precious seconds of our lives as we worry about the future and ruminate about what’s past. “We’re living in a world that contributes in a major way to mental fragmentation, disintegration, distraction, decoherence,” says Buddhist scholar B. Alan Wallace. What this means is that we’re always doing something, and we allow little time to practice stillness and calm. While this is very much easier said than done, people who do practice this are much happier, more exuberant, more empathetic, and more secure. There is an entire philosophical study on the concept of ‘mindfulness’, which is a state of active, open, intentional attention on the present.

Thanks for your time Saniaa. ✨🤗✨

  1. Excellent post. While ” mindfulness” is sometimes thought of as a Buddhist philosophy, it is also the essence of Christianity. We experience God in the present moment. Paying attention to each moment will result in a fulfilling life.
