Among the congratulations, I received a great quote by Paramhasa Yogananda from my dear friend Shivani Sachdeva Nayajivan. I would like to make this quote the real purpose of this communication as it is appropriate in this time of world economic and political unrest:
"Go on worry fasts. Three times a day, shake off all worries.
At seven o’clock in the morning, say to yourself, “All my worries of the night are cast out, and from 7 to 8 a.m. I refuse to worry, no matter how troublesome are the duties ahead of me. I am on a worry fast.”
From noon to 1 p.m., say, “I am cheerful, I will not worry.”
In the evening, between six and nine o’clock, while in the company ... of your spouse or hard-to-get-along-with relatives or friends, mentally make a strong resolution: “Within these three hours I will not worry. I refuse to get vexed, even if I am nagged. No matter how tempting it is to indulge in a worry feast, I will resist the temptation. I must not sabotage my peace-heart by shocks of worries. I cannot afford to worry—I am on a worry fast.”
After you succeed in carrying out worry fasts during certain hours of the day, try fasting for one or two weeks at a time.
Then, try to prevent the accumulation of worry poisons in your system entirely."
Namaste, Tyagi henry
