Why does it appear that so much of life seems to be consumed by fear: fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of not getting what we want, fear of not being able to keep what we have, ad nauseum.
Is is truly so difficult to live a life without fear? I am not referring to common sense, but I am referring to being paralyzed from moving into life - the here and now. Maybe I am an idealist; I am not certain. I find terrific peace and joy in the awareness of the moment - of being fully present, of loving without need for reciprication, of being myself - while granting myself space to grow and heal. Somehow in this moment, I realize others sense the freedom to be themselves - w/o the masks or the walls.
Anxiety and fear are so worthless. Wallowing in this, our hearts get to the point of despair rather than truly finding the joy of life -and the joy others get from our experiencing life together. How do we enter this moment? I believe it is by following our own path and being as authentic as possible with ourselves and others.
Today I boldly proclaim to those entrenched in the anxieties of the day, "Come see the freedom available to you and realize that you don't need no stinkin fear!"
