A friend of mine called her spiritual mentor with a serious problem for which she had no solution. None of the perceived options seemed workable. After five tries, she finally got her mentor on the phone and explained the situation and her anxiety and her fear about the possible outcome. Instead of offering a specific answer or rehearsing the various options, her mentor said simply, "Just take it easy." And my friend felt an immediate relief and release from all the heaviness of her situation. Sometimes, when we are faced with troublesome situations or difficult decisions, what we need, above all else, is the light touch. We need to let our fears and anxiety be dissolved by the innermost conviction that all will turn out well regardless. We need to take our situation not so hard, not so seriously, but to take it easy—to relax enough so that we can see calmly and clearly our solution.
