The Issue of Waiting

An excerpt from my book, Body Over Mind, a mindful reality check

The answer to every question in our life will be disclosed to us some time after now. Therefore, when we worry about things happening or not happening, we must wait to find out. This is an aspect of reality that regularly causes us pain as we hold a lot of pressure and wanting to know and understand things before we can. We also believe that if we were smarter we could figure things out ahead of time. But if we do not yet know how something is going to turn out then we are not supposed to. This is a simple truth of nature and not a deficiency on the part of our intelligence.
