The moment we take our problems seriously the mosquitoes of thoughts will fly in to our space and sanctuary, which makes it difficult for us to lay back and relax and enjoy life. It would be impossible to live in the present moment like children if we go through life with the attitude that we have a binding contract with life, and a term of the contract is, “I have to take life seriously and all my problems seriously”.
A seeker of happiness and harmony will always be on guard to catch those moments where we get caught and drown in our problems, so they can pull that emergency hand brake to slow the vehicle of our mind to a halt. This way, peace and happiness can be experienced in the midst of our whirling problems.
I say be courageous and stop taking life so seriously and our problems will disappear tomorrow. What remains is the experience of the present moment of fun and laughter.
