To know fear is to tune in to a most primal emotion. Fear at its best when acted upon appropriately protects. Fear at its worst is an insidious curse moving one to develop actions that indiscriminately destroy.
Our bodies respond to the most dangerous situations through an instinctive response to fear. Our minds may take that emotion and twist it, manipulate it, or expand it with faulty assumptions beyond what is truly dangerous. Unless we are aware, present to what that fear truly represents, we may seek to protect something that is not the threat we think it is.
Worry is the niggling finger (or maybe the middle finger!) joined to the hand of fear. Worry may be the way that leads to creating a false fear. I may turn the hand into a limp apathy or the readied fist. In between somewhere is the hand of help and creativity. Acknowledging the worry, exploring it, expressing and letting it be a conscious energy enables one to make decisions that take worry energy to its healthy conclusion.
Fearsome things….. using both the mind and the soul to let them be what they are…..become fearless guides.
