Trying too hard will interrupt the flow of our understanding and our happiness and our creating. As you observe any worries that pop up in your day, remember the relevant and irrelevant thing, because that can cause us to try too hard. Some of those feelings, some of those worries that were buried long ago will be irrelevant today.
Even though each old buried worry has been adding on to other buried worries and making current worries much more intense, sometimes the reason for that fear is long gone – it’s irrelevant now.
So just the act of tuning into whatever worry we notice, knowing that it may be irrelevant after all this time – relaxing into observing it, curious about it, open to the idea that it may not even be our worry – is enough for it to disappear… pfft pffft pffft.
Because there IS no message now. Does that make sense?
And if that worry IS relevant to what’s happening in your life now, then with the same act of tuning into that worry, relaxing into observing it, curious about it, open to the idea that it may not even be our worry, then the message of it can flow – immediately with a blast of fresh air and understanding OR flowing in later – whatever is perfect.
So… back to that task I suggested about noticing any worrying in your day – you can relax into observing those worries, knowing that whether they’re relevant or irrelevant, knowing that the very act of smilingly observing them, being curious about them, open to the idea that it may not even be our worry, will release the pressure of them and allow our gorgeous Mental Feel to do its job – which is to produce creative solutions to our problem and guide us through this change place.

Have I said that often enough now? 🙂 We call this creative state of being the Einstein Factor, because it brings reliable flashes of genius. This is Shelley Martin’s cute cat Leo.
