Fears hold us back in so many ways. Remember, most of us are living lives of habits and patterns ruled unconsciously by fear. It's time to WAKE UP to our fears and begin to live our lives from a conscious basis of love and understanding -- not an unconscious basis of fear!

All of these new experiences produce fear. If I didn't feel afraid of trying some of this stuff, I would really be nuts. Fear lets me know that this is real, and there are consequences, and I am alive. Feeling the fear is a good part of this journey.

Fitting out is not about being rebellious and purposefully trying to get a charge out of people like you did when you were a teenager. Fitting out is about being okay with following your heart, with being who you are.

'Who I Really Am Is Safe, No Matter What The Circumstances'

When we truly believe that we are not our bodies, that we are not our personalities, that there is a part of us that is greater than all of this, then we begin to know that who we really are is safe at all times -- and fear has no grip on our lives.

My fear is that I lost more than my mom; I lost an ally, a protector, a counselor, and a confidante. Even though she's not physically here, she's still a huge part of who I am.

Whatever challenges you may be experiencing, it's times like these when we can choose to either be destroyed by our fears or be willing to endure the temporary deconstruction of our parts, thus creating awareness and shifting our perceptions, in order to be whole again.

Fear And Grief: 'When You Lose Your Mother, You Also Lose Your Childhood'

Deborah Sumner | Posted 10.03.2012 | Healthy Living
Deborah Sumner

My sister Janet told me that I'm stronger than she is in dealing with the loss of our mother. Maybe that's true, but I think it's that I let other people's well-meaning but fear-based comments pass through me, rather than letting them take hold of me.

Whether it's financial, the loss of a loved one, a health issue, or any other hurdle in your path, I find that if you take a step back and change your perception of the situation, you just might bounce back and prevail.

When I arrived at Kalani, I was trying desperately to integrate what I'd learned at the monastery into everyday life, and I felt like I was failing. I was stuck between worlds. I needed a bridge, a translator, a medium.

Making Friends With Fear

When we stop rejecting and hating fear, we disarm it and remove its power. As a result, fear stops being frightening and disruptive. What we reject becomes fiercer and scarier; what we welcome eases and lightens.

Jenny doesn't seem terrified of this thing that is so far beyond us, this thing that none of us can now see. This same cancer took her mother, and she knows what lies ahead.

Everything you need to know about being fearless you can learn from watching children. They play with each other without ever knowing each other's names. They run, jump, climb, fall down and get right back up again. They are also our greatest teachers.

Now might be a good time to mention that soaring high in the air above the waters of the Pacific is not something anyone who knows me, even in passing, would associate with me.

A good many people here still have an intrinsic trust in others in this age when we are quick to doubt, find fault or simply don't trust as easily as did our ancestors. Why is it so hard for us to believe that people will do the right thing when given the opportunity?
