Fear is the Mind Killer

For those of you who like to read science fiction - the title of this post is from Frank Herbert's Dune. I was just thinking this morning about FDR's 'We have nothing to fear but fear itself.' What does that mean, really? For me it means, when you have one or more options to a future state - the emotion of fear is usually trying to keep you from your true power. If you have a vision of something you would like to achieve, and the courage to act towards that goal - you can and will succeed, provided you don't let fear drive.

Whenever I see that quote, I read it more as "We have nothing to fear but the unknown." I don't know a single person who has not, at one time or another, feared something uncertain in their, or a close one's, life. And without that fear of uncertainty, can we call ourselves human? I think it's the fear of what is unknown that holds some of the most human traits.

True - fear is a beautiful emotion, it uncovers the truth in you - do you act on fear? or let it pass through you?

I think it depends on the moment.
Some fear may hold us back, have such an impact on our lives that we never try again. Although, fear can be the thing that drives us. Makes us want to move past whatever it is that caused that fear in the first place.
