Man and woman worry when faced with a problem. Man and woman continue to worry even when a solution to the problem is available. The worry persists until the problem is overcome by a solution, but worry resurfaces once again by a new problem.
Knowledge induces man and woman with solutions for problems or advises them to look for solutions to problems. Knowledge of worry keeps man and woman anxious, impatient and hopeful that it will go away.
Knowledge reveals that worry is of different intensities. When worry is minimal, it is usually tolerated with disappointment until a solution removes the problem. When worry is maximum, it is not tolerated and anger of different intensities with consequences is the usual outcome of worry.
Knowledge reveals that problems may or may not be solved in life.
Wisdom of worry, on the other hand, keeps man and woman patient with trust in life in every moment. Nor do they worry no matter what problem they face in daily life nor even when problems are not solved in life.
What is the wisdom regarding worry with respect to problem, is the question?
Wisdom reveals that man and woman face a problem in life in the moment. Wisdom reveals that man and woman also worry in the moment in life. Wisdom reveals to man and woman that knowledge has a solution to a problem in the moment in life.
Wisdom reveals that a moment in life is neither made by man nor by woman. Wisdom reveals that a moment in life accommodated vegetation and animal much before the moment accommodated man and woman within it.
Wisdom reveals that neither vegetation nor animals make any moment in life. Wisdom reveals that the moment in life is manifested by the intelligence in life spontaneously, uncontrollably and unpredictably.
Wisdom reveals that the intelligence in life replaces every moment in life with another moment. Wisdom reveals that in between a moment and the next is moment as well.
Wisdom reveals that the intelligence in life renews what is within every moment that it replaces. Wisdom reveals the intelligence in the moment manifests what is renewed within the moment.
Wisdom reveals that what is renewed within the moment cannot be other than what is renewed within the moment by the intelligence in life. Wisdom reveals that man cannot make what is renewed in the moment by the intelligence in life, because man does not make the intelligence in life.
Man and woman with wisdom, therefore, are patient in every moment in life and trust life in every moment in life and neither worry in the moment nor worry about the problem in the moment that faces them. The wise do not get angry and are free of its consequences due to worry.
The enlightened face life as it happens in every moment in life. The enlightened live life that happens to them every moment.

The essentials for a live human birth and all that accompanies it on its evolutionary path are provided by the intelligence of life, unconditionally, moment by moment. Thus, there are no conditions that any human being brings when born or needs to bring. Wisdom reveals that the intelligence of life manifests every moment and what it contains and replaces it with the next moment and what it contains. Man, therefore, neither makes a problem nor resolves it. In understanding this man may come to face whatever happens without worry – so it is with enlightened beings and young children.

German Translator’s Note:
"Don't worry!" is a common piece of advice. If a person were able to switch off his worries, he would no longer have any, because nobody would like to have worries. The wisdom in this article gives no advice not to worry, because man does not have his thoughts under control. As long as man worries, he worries, that is, they happen to his mind. This deeper understanding means being free from worries, even when they inevitably happen to the mind.
