Nervous Prostration is a condition of irritable weakness and depression, which may be the result of a severely prolonged exhausting experience. From this phrase came the medical term: neurasthenia, which changed a bit in the 1800s, specific to the mental problems of Americans. It became a mental diagnosis affecting the overworked. It results in undue stress and heart problems. This diagnosis was viewed as a reflection of the natural superiority of the American culture and a product of progress and refinement of the modern culture.
Anxiety, in general, is a result of wanting something to happen that may or may not be, the result of change, or hope something will happen immediately. We see this daily in our culture, because we are so used to getting what we want, when we want it. From the time we were children, the universe appeared to be like a big Santa Claus. We ask our parents for toys, and eventually we get them. In fact, we get them on specific days, exactly on time. We teach our children to expect this kind of behavior from the universe and from their daily work. But, this kind of expectation, or any immediate expectation for the future can result in Nervous Prostration.
Every time you think of what “might” or “might not” happen as a result of an action, you set yourself up for anxious thoughts. This is not the way of a prayer practitioner or a spiritual being. We must honor the spiritual process of life and respect the NOW much more than we do.
Being happy really comes down to loving exactly where you are in that moment (the NOW). What happens next comes into view as a result of how you view the Law and the actions you take to prepare for the Universal Power of the Law to work in your life. What this feels like is trust.
The problem with accepting this premise comes down to not trusting—God! We do not believe that God can produce a future that is equal to or better than what we see for ourselves. However, should we choose to respect Divine Law, we would find that when we sow a seed into the Universal Mind, if we gave the universe enough time to grow that seed into a beautiful, fruit-bearing tree; we would be more than satisfied with the result.
Most of the struggle I see in my life and those around me comes from this anticipation. You ask yourself, “Am I good enough, praying correctly enough, patient enough to let go of the control of my life and let something greater than I work toward my greater good?”
The truth: Should you give your trust to this Law of the Universe, it would be as if you had the trust of a great scientist, actually. We know with certainty that if we plant a seed in the right environment, with sufficient light and heat, God will produce a perfect plant. It’s important to remember that simply because you planted the seed does not mean that you GREW the plant. That miracle happened because of the Law.
So, we must use this metaphor in our daily lives when it comes to planting the seeds of truth, the ideas for our better future, and our wishes to fulfill our life’s dreams. Each of these seeds take time to grow. They also take preparation on our part, diligence (as opposed to sitting around just hoping), and giving space for that which you have asked for. All of these things, in due time, will give you what you wish for or even more than you expected.
This is the Law of the Universe in Action!
