A woman said that she had been on the spiritual path for several years. At times she was filled with the terror of the consequences of the path she was walking.
“For the first time I am seeing that my husband and I are not on the same wavelength. I am seeing that our marriage is based on an illusion. I am terrified at the prospects of our relationship breaking down, or us drifting apart from each other.”
“Anxiety is looking at the future with the eyes of the past,” said the sage. “But understand this: if you live in the present, you have all the resources to face whatever happens now. That way you don’t have to suffer the future now.”
