Most people live their lives in the avoidance of fear.
Consider the people in your life who you truly admire. These people live with an element of fear and discomfort in their lives. Yet they continue to do what they need to do while living with this fear… They don’t let fear stop them from giving their gifts. They become acquainted with fear, living in touch with it, they cultivate a relationship of mutual understanding.
Fear is the edge of you.
Fear is your closest ally, if you allow it to be.
Fear lets you know that you are growing, living, and giving fully.
If you do not feel fear while living by allowing it to be part of you, then you are becoming fear itself. Fear is always there. Your fear represents the boundaries of you.
If you feel up to the challenge of living fully…
Become intimate with your fear. Feel it. Allow it to show you where the boundaries of you are in order that you can break through them and give the gifts that you incarnate into this world, fully. In this way, you can practice love despite your fear. Helping others to do the same will be a side effect of this.
Notice what gifts you want to give to this world, and consider why you don’t give them fully. Truly enquire as to where the root of this cause is. Feel it. If you didn’t let fear stop you, what would you want to do?
Most importantly however… Do it because of love. And do it for love. Because why do you do anything really?
