Worry is Preposterous

A powerful audio recording of Terence Mckenna on the topic of anxiety:

Don’t worry! You don’t know enough to worry. That’s God’s truth. Who do you think you are that you should worry? I mean it’s a total waste of time. It presupposes such a knowledge of the situation that it is in fact a form of hubris.

Worry is praying to the Devil, it’s betting against yourself. Wei Po-Yang, a great Chinese teacher who wrote many many commentaries on the I Ching concluded: “worry is preposterous”. that was it.
