What is the Cause of Worry? – Radhanath Swami

There are numberless reasons to worry within the world we live. We may be worried about our health or our wealth; we may be worried about our loved ones or our friends; we may be worried about yesterday or tomorrow; we may be worried about environment or the situation in world politics.

The nature of the world is everything is always changing, but we want to control our changing environment, and that’s the biggest problem. Why? Because the eternal reality is we are not the controllers. Things are going to go their own way. We can try our best and to some degree we have influence, but ultimately things are out of our control. So to the degree we are attached to anything to go our way or anyone to be our way on the worldly platform, there will be worries. Attachments bring worry.
