We can't even solve what is going on inside ourselves with hate. In order to cultivate more love in the world, we need to cultivate it inside ourselves first... and we can't wait until everyone "out there" changes and behaves better.

Flex Your Fearlessness

Becoming Fearless is part of our larger effort to put the spotlight on what is working in our culture rather than just on what's dysfunctional. Taken individually, these stories inspire. Taken together, they testify to something larger -- that in the face of multiple crises, people are responding with strength, courage and resilience.

In October of last year, I was no longer able to deny a long-developing internal shift, and promptly left my rather high-powered career to figure out what my next passion was. Walking out of the office that day with no real plan, I'd never been more scared. Now, I've never been more liberated.

All of us are seeking happiness and trying to avoid suffering. But sometimes our path toward happiness and avoidance of suffering crosses with another person's path toward happiness and avoidance of suffering and there's a disturbance. We take the other person's actions as "anti-us," but really, most of the time, it has nothing to do with us.
