Q: In light of recent world events I ﬁnd that I am often anxious and worried about the future.
Roy Eugene Davis: It is best to practice replacing thoughts of worry and fear about an unknown, imaginary future with an appreciation for life as it is now. If we learn to focus on what we have, even if it is meager, instead of what we think we lack, we open our mind and consciousness to the ﬂow of supportive grace that is always with us. In this way we can become positive and optimistic which will result in better health and increased happiness.
