We all know that we have fears. I certainly do, because ,like you, we are all Human. For litterally thousands of years it has been engrained deep inside our DNA structure. The cave dwellers called our Ancestors, started it all, with the fear of lightning and thunder, wind, storms, and wild animals, just to name a few. But the intersting thing about all this accumulated fear over the millenia is that ,dispite it all, we are still here. The Human Race hasn’t diminished. It’s vertually thrived! World populations are exceeding comfortable limits. Why?
I feel that even though fear is a learned behavior, we need that fear to survive. To grow. To flourish. To acknowledge ourselves as Human Beings. To Wake Up. To push us onward toward our Greatest Self. If that is true, then is fear the making of the Creator? Did he/she instill that emotion in us ,on purpose, and not the ‘learned behavior’ we think it is? While at first glance, fear appears as a Negative emotion that one must ‘avoid’ in order to be strong and not appear weak in the World. But I think the real message behind the subject is that, we ‘push through’ fear and become stronger in the face of it. For the simple Effort of it. We need to become afraid to make us reach our full potential. With our backs up against the wall, we make our stands, each according to our beliefs and values, and take on the challenge of courage in the Life adventure.
So, my most important decision, at this stage of my life is to NOT settle for a “Ho Hum” Life, and pull myself up by my “Big Boy Shorts”, and Believe and Achieve, just like my Ancestor did, who taught me the Way. I decide what my Soul needs and it needs to feel the growth inherent in each and every one of us. FEAR = Faulse Evidence Appearing Real. My Reality is created by My thoughts and feelings. I CHOOSE to look fear in the eyes and say,’bring it’. ( In the end, you are going to make me stronger………. ha ha ;’)
