Here is a thread on my notes and thoughts on Letter XIII - On Groundless Fears. (1/n)
We cross our bridge of worries many a times before we even come across it. And very often, this bridge doesn't even exist in reality. (2/n)
Don't suffer unduly in your mind even before the event. The event might not happen. (3/n)
Mindfulness. Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. (4/n)
Troubles, if they are meant to come, will come soon enough. But why prolong them by living them even before they arrive? (5/n)
Suffering - in imagination, has no boundaries. In reality, it does.
Face your fears with a calculated, rational and resolute mind. (7/n)
These baseless fears cause us to squander away the only thing actually in our control- the present. As long as you have your health and freedom, you have your present. You have this moment.
