Currie's Gratitude 8 December 2013

What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.  [Jiddu Krishnamurti]

I never really thought about learning about my fears. I thought only to stop them. MayBE run and hide. Sometimes confront. But learning about them?! Ridunkulous!!!

And of course there is that whole idea that I am NOT to fear. That I am to get past fear… Well, let’s just say it is all BEing re-examined in the LIGHT of new ideas.

Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation. I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure. Lost opportunities cause erosion of confidence, and the downward spiral begins.  [Charles Stanley]

This is how I know fear. How it’s nibbled away at my Life. I sit fretting and worrying and really waste Life away fearing whatever. I have been noticing a lot more indecisiveness and second-guessing going on in me since moving. I am distracted by wanting to get things “right.”

Fear makes us feel our humanity.  [Benjamin Disraeli]

This is one positive thing about fear. One thing that connects us to one another.

I love you, Currie
