      Meher Baba was the actual source of "Don't worry. Be happy."
      Here is one of his discourses about worrying. Enjoy!

      "There are very few things in the mind which eat up as much
      energy as worry. It is one of the most difficult things not
      to worry about anything. Worry is experienced when things go
      wrong, but in relation to past happenings it is idle merely
      to wish that they might have been otherwise. The frozen past
      is what it is, and no amount of worrying is going to make it
      other than what it has been. But the limited ego-mind
      identifies itself with its past, gets entangled with it and
      keeps alive the pangs of frustrated desires. Thus worry
      continues to grow into the mental life of man until the ego-mind
      is burdened by the past. Worry is also experienced in relation
      to the future when this future is expected to be disagreeable
      in some way. In this case it seeks to justify itself as a
      necessary part of the attempt to prepare for coping with the anticipated situations. But, things can never be helped merely
      by worrying. Besides, many of the things which are anticipated
      never turn up, or if they do occur, they turn out to be much
      more acceptable than they were expected to be. Worry is the
      product of feverish imagination working under the stimulus of desires. It is a living through of sufferings which are mostly
      our own creation. Worry has never done anyone any good, and it
      is very much worse than mere dissipation of psychic energy, for
      it substantially curtails the joy and fullness of life."
