If we weren't afraid we'd put our hand in the fire or jump off the third floor - is this true?
What protects us from unnecessary risk - knowledge or fear? Isn't it enough that we know what we're in danger of or do we have to be afraid of it too?
When you leave the house in the morning and think how many things can happen to you, does it protect you from danger? Or is it the other way around? When you have to make some decision or change something in your life - is fear your ally or saboteur?
Anxiety puts us in a state of constant vigilance, a state of securing ourselves in case.... Its existence is so rationalized and written into our DNA code that no one even thinks about what life would be like without it. And fear takes various forms and uses very convincing arguments until it finally takes control of our lives. And we don't even notice that the more we remain in a state of vigilance, the greater the probability that something will happen to us. We attract what we are and not what we want. What we focus on, we create, even if we don't want it.
What if you stopped being afraid?
Would you jump out of a plane without a parachute? Quit your job and go on a road trip? Would you attack your boss? Even anger and frustration are derivatives of fear, without it they would not exist.
So probably none of this would have happened, and being in a state of deep peace and trust in yourself and life you would have made decisions in accordance with your inner voice, which, in the end, is the only guarantee of the rightness of the decisions made.
So what would your life be like without fear?
Isn't it worth the risk?
