“Do you suffer from anxiety or insomnia? Maybe you need a new definition…
In today’s podcast and post I propose an alternative way to view anxiety and insomnia. As someone who has suffered with these for much of my life, I have discovered a profoundly liberating framework from which I’ve found a lasting sense of peace and rest.
Join me now as I offer a new definition of anxiety which invites us to consider that these are not problems for which we must seek treatment, but are instead invitations to a deeper dimension of life.
“How much of each day do you spend worrying about your life?”
Are you constantly drawn into the feed of politics, news events, market fluctuations, and the state of the world? What happens if things don’t get better? What is your plan should everything go to pot?
These questions help us realize that we spend quite a bit of time worrying about our life, and the marginalized around us worry about where they will live, what they will eat, or what they will wear. So how can Jesus say, in the Sermon on the Mount, “Don’t worry about your life.”? It seems impossible given the state of our world.
In today’s podcast and post, we look closer at this counter intuitive strategy for how to live in our tumultuous world without anxiety. Join me now as we see beyond our distractions and get a glimpse of the freedom from living without worry.
