Is being careful is an obsession?

Being careful should not become an obsession. Some people are worried about being careful. Carefulness is the act of being aware of whatever we think, speak and do. Many of our problems are self-created. Self-awareness will enable us to enjoy the experiences of life during various situations and events. We must observe our thoughts, fellings, emotions, tendencies, words and actions and so on. When self-awareness and self-observation are practised on a constant basis, that becomes our nature. Hence we are also carefree. A circus artiste performs and the audience is held spell bound. The artist has not done it all of a sudden. It is with the practice of the art for a long time with commitment and focus that he has dione it. In the same way, our life is also a circus. If we practice self-awareness and self-observation, we can always be careful and carefree. we must have control over ourselves.

I know there's a disorder regarding this attitude. There are people too meticulous about being clean or something that it affects their whole life. You have a point, though. We shouldn't be all that careful, sometimes taking risks can produce great things. By the way, this discussion reminds me of the movie Along Came Polly.

Well yes I do agree with you. Having control is very important and not always easy. It is something we need to practice our whole life through. Is being careful an obsession? It can be. Being to careful can make life hard to deal with. Sometimes it is nice just to do what you want to without being overly careful. It all depends on the situation. Don't make live harder than it is. Take care.
