Is there any real reason to worry, or to hurry up? 

William Q. Judge writes in an article entitled "Living in 
the Now": 

"There is never any need to worry. The good law looks out for all 
things, and all we have to do is our duty as it comes along from day 
to day. Nothing is gained by worrying about matters and about the 
way people do not respond. In the first place you do not alter 
people, and in the second, by being anxious as to things, you put an 
occult obstacle in the way of what you want done. It is better to 
acquire a lot of what is called carelessness by the world, but is in 
reality a calm reliance on the law, and a doing of one's own duty, 
satisfied that the results must be right, no matter what they may 

And Judge goes on: 

"The Past! What is it? Nothing. Gone! Dismiss it. You are the past 
of yourself. Therefore it concerns you not as such. It only concerns 
you as you now are. In you, as now you exist, lies all the past. So 
follow the Hindu maxim: "Regret nothing; never be sorry; and cut all 
doubts with the sword of spiritual knowledge." Regret is productive 
only of error. I care not what I was, or what any one was. I only 
look for what I am each moment. For as each moment is and at once is 
not, it must follow that if we think of the past we forget the 
present, and while we forget, the moments fly by us, making more 
past. Then regret nothing, not even the greatest follies of your 
life, for they are gone, and you are to work in the present which is 
both past and future at once."
