The physicist Marie Curie reminds us that “nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood,” and fear becomes problematic when we view it as a default directive rather than as information that we are empowered to choose how to respond to by design.
The question is, what are you doing with this information? Are you using it as an excuse to give up or to lash out at others? Or are you using it as a catalyst for a mindful positive response?
I can think of far too many times that I allowed fear to take over my heart, causing me to act selfishly, retreat back to the comfort zone, say hurtful things to people I love, and put my safety and well-being at risk. Why do we do these things to ourselves and the people we influence? One word: FEAR.
Fear is a powerful emotion, and emotions are not directives; rather, they are information to be understood.
Do you want to ruled by fear by default, or mindful understanding by design?
