In the world we live, stress is hard to avoid. However, it is not the stress, but how we deal with it that determines the quality of our lives and our level of peace and happiness.
When we deal with the stress in life by panicking not only do we block ourselves from the solutions we seek, but we cause physical, emotional and spiritual harm to ourselves.
When we face the difficult things in life with a peace knowing that all we seek and need to deal with our life issues can only come when we stop, become still and breathe. We then can realize all we need is available to us in Spirit.
In all disaster movies, it is always the people who panic that are the ones to die, and, the hero or heroine, who remain calm, are the ones who survive.
Therefore, when you feel yourself panicking, begin to breathe deeply and say whatever prayer will help bring you some ease.
