Q. How can we stop worrying about things? Worrying does not resolve anything but I cannot help it.

A. When you say that you want to stop worrying about things, do you happen to know who is worrying about what? The Buddha said that our sufferings are from our being deluded by illusions. We are drowning in the ocean of suffering since we cannot see things as they are.

Try to see yourself as you really are and the things worrying you as they really are. If you can see either the essence of your being, or that of the things that you worry about, your worries will disappear by themselves and you will realise that you are the solution itself and happiness itself.
