Questioner: What is tension? I understand what worry is, now please explain tension?
Dadashri: Tension is similar but not quite the same as worry. The pull in tension is many sided where as in worry you are totally involved in one issue thinking that to be everything. Example of tension: 'what will happen if this job does not work out? Here my wife is sick, what will happen to her? The children are not going to school properly,what will happen to them?' Tension is all these kind of pulls.I have not had tension for the last twenty-seven years, since my spontaneous Self realization.
Now there is a lot of difference between being careful and worrying. Carefulness is awareness and worry is to have anxieties, which eat you up from within.
