FEAR






Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world.”

Daily we meet people who are living in some type of fear, and generally it is destroying their life. Some people stay in bad relationships out of fear of being alone. Some stay in bad jobs out of fear of not having money. Parents often live in a place of fear for their children and all of us have a place where we entertain some fear we hope will never come into our lives weather it is sickness or even death.

There are two main boundaries in life and they are “Love” and “Fear”.  In many cases we view these boundaries as “bookends” holding the volumes of our life experiences on the bookshelf of our journey. As a Christian, we believe in the teachings of Jesus and use them as guidepost for my journey. One main focus we use and try to impart to others is this:




“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7)

Not all our clients are Christian but generally all are on some type of spiritual journey, which can incorporate this guideline. Unfortunately, religion often functions contrary to this guideline by using fear as a main component of the journey of life. However, for a life journey designed to be one of peace, a positive spiritual understanding is more important than a rigid religious experience.

If I have not been given a spirit of fear, then what have I been given?

Power – a great gift to offset the often-stated weakness of human existence

Love – the core of all life and stability

Sound mind – a gift designed to offset the often-found insanity of this earthy journey.

A place of daily meditation would be to focus on this fact: if fear is not part of my spiritual make-up, why do I even pay attention to it? Instead, let me focus on the fact I have been given the ability to walk in power; love in abundance; and have a sound and peace-filed mind.

The Dalai Lama once taught: Love and compassion are necessities; not luxuries.
-->
Without them, humanity cannot survive.
Let each day be a place of love and compassion and not fear. It will have to be a conscious decision to follow this thought, but the results will be well worthwhile.

Fear and Love are key factors in understanding our journey. In my new book, OFF THE HOOK, a woman leaves a life of fear and finds true meaning in a place of love and spiritual understanding. Check it out at Amazon (click here)  or on my website (click here).



Also have a new book out called FAULTLINE. Greed impacts the natural environment and leads to catastrophic problems. Also found on Amazon (click here)
