Fear

Fear paralyzes.
Fear makes real the problem not the solution.
Fear is the belief that a situation has power to harm, not enlighten or purify.
Fear is literally the suspension of the human mind to solve any problem no matter how large.
Fear is what causes stress, strain, greed, anger, violence, hunger, aggression, worry, pain.
Fear is the root of all evil in the world.
Fear inspires action without thought.
Fear makes what is unwanted, permanent.

We have many futures before us -
The one we choose will depend on how many of us refuse fear.
Refuse to believe that any event can't be solved.
Accept the idea that even the worst things that happen can be invitations to greatness.
Greatness is accepting into your mind that you can and will overcome any obstacle if you refuse fear.
Be great today - 
Refuse fear.

True post! Fear motivates virtually every action we take. I used to believe it was inescapable to act without fear motivating the action in some way. It does seem to be possible to do so though, maybe that is considered to be part of enlightenment, to act regularly without fear dominating ego, love, ect. In the mean time being aware of fear, makes me less afraid......

This is such a great topic. Fear is insidious and destructive. By blindly buying in to mass hysteria and fear, a population goes mad. This is the information age, and we must learn to filter and control the massive quantities of information we absorb. I listened to the 5 PM news the other night for the first time in many months. I won't do that again. The broadcaster's voice had a deep ominous tone as he carefully read out one disastrous piece of news after another. Not even one slightly happy or positive item was included. Why did I need to hear about the crazed Xmas murderer in CA? No reason. Why not share positive stories to uplift people instead of fanning the flames of fear and insecurity? We need to help people focus on the good, and rise above the fear. Thanks for such a timely and informative post.

How about embracing the fear? Would that make fear lose its power over us? Just thinking out loud...

Thank you Rogue! I visited your blog and you certainly embrace your fear! I have to admit I'd love to climb but, uggg, there's the fear :)

Karen - that's a great point - I think 99.9% of the stories are pointless to our lives and sadly feed many of our addictions to the feeling of fear (yup - I said it, I think a lot of us are addicted to fear - and that's why were fed it)

Linda - I love that comment, and I learned that is a great strategy. I think the key is don't 'act' from fear, that is take a second, observe it - hug it and embrace it if you must (I do a lot :) - Ariane Goodwin taught me to think of fear like a small child - that's exactly what you'd do - hug, embrace!!

Great comments - thank you!
