Dear friends,

THE world is made up of two categories of people: those who are stressed and those who are not. Stressful people are those who desire to control life. They like to mould life in the way they wish it to be. They are focused only on themselves. Those who have no stress are those who accept what life offers them without complaints. Their focus is about what they can do for others.

We are merely a bio-machine as long as we believe we are mind and body. The purpose of human life is to transcend the mind and ascend to a higher state of consciousness. In that state we are truly in the divinity that we descended from. Until we reach that state of unity with what we truly are, we are in turmoil. Stress or tension can be identified as this turmoil, this confusion between our true nature and what we pretend, struggle and strive to become.

The reasons for stress in one person does not necessarily cause stress in another. Someone said that the reverse of ‘stressed’ reads as ‘desserts’! Nowadays, talking about stress and offering solutions that work temporarily at best is a huge business.
Rather than fixing what is wrong within, people try fighting or dissolving stress by manipulating the field of outside circumstances. How long can you run? From what will you run away?

Stress becomes an inevitable part of life because we feel it is connected to the fast world outside of us. We feel there can be no life without what we term ‘stress’. The truth is, stress is just our own mind-body’s response to what happens outside of us. It is not the disturbance outside that creates trouble, tension and stress. It is the disturbance inside that does it. Stress can be avoided by changing yourself. You can make yourself stress-proof. This is very simple. Choose not to be affected by what happens outside you. This is not impractical. It is your conditioning that influences you to get affected by what happens to you through events that are beyond your control. Nothing is inherently good or bad except what we judge them to be.

Drop your judgement about yourself, about the people around you and about the situations. You will get freedom from stress. You experience stress when you flow against the current, not when you flow with it. You lose yourself when you flow with the current. It helps you reach the restful mind state from which you can witness events around you without being touched by them. You really have nothing to lose by trying, except your stress! Be Blissful!

Shall be wonderful if other members also share their thoughts on this.

Best Regards,

Stress has two components - from the event triggering stress and from our belief about the event. A baby has no stress when it sees a poisonous snake near it if it believes the snake is a pet. Stephen Covey talks about the 90/10 principle: 10% of life is made up of what happens to you. 90% of life is decided by how you react. Abundance Thinking and Self Fulfilling Beliefs are the essential part of Emotional and Spiritual Intelligence that can help us deal with stress in better ways. We have the choice to think, feel and act diffferently and create better results. There is enough for everybody in this world. What is lost is a small part of life, not all of life. Most losses can be renewed, replaced, or left behind. Life is short... let us look gratefully at what we have and enjoy it rather than regretting the past or worrying about future losses. We came with nothing, leave with nothing, experience the wonders of nature and life as long as we are here. I have an ebook on Stress titled Yahoo! Stress Free. It might make interesting and useful reading.
