AFRAID OF WHAT IS TO COME?

If you are finding yourself in a position where you are dreading future events here is a constructive way to overcome your fear.
One way to face a situation lying ahead of you, which to you appears to be yet another repetition of a bad/painful experience, is to teach yourself to look upon it as a wholly new experience. Try to meet the situation as if you had never met a similar one before and as if everyone and everything involved in it were completely new and fascinating to you.
And in case you are now thinking to yourself that this is a way of deluding yourself I can assure you, it is not. Because it is an actual fact that each moment of life is different from all the others and that each individual is changing all the time and thus never is the same person from one day to the next. It is only the fearful Ego-mind which is unable, because unwilling, to acknowledge this truth and instead fervently clings on to its conviction that situations are repeating themselves and that people are always behaving in the same way. They only do if you yourself are remaining stuck in your habitual ways. However, if you change your level of awareness and your attitude of mind in meeting personal situations and people they change and become new, too. It is your own personal reality which is responsible for the way your life is like, so the key to make things new in a positive way lies hidden within your own thinking.
