True fear is a survival signal that sounds only in the presence of danger; yet, our culture is stuck in the creation of dualities, such as courage or fear (pretty/ugly, peace/disaster or bad/good). In other words, our culture says “you can’t have courage without fear.” Not true! If you go to work and learn your biggest client has gone to your competitor do you allow anxiety to take over in the form of projections, such as “I am going to go under…” At this propitious moment, observe your mental chatter so you can monitor the fearful feelings created by the false self. A courageous person is not into living a life of regrets. Fear blocks and paralyzes the heart; therefore, fear blocks courage. What percentage of your life is filled with regret?
- Author Unknown: “Fear, the worst of all enemies, can be effectively cured by forced repetitions of acts of courage.”
