Looking Fear Straight in the Eye

Have you ever observed how we are driven by our fears?  Why else do we accumulate money, properties, titles, life insurance, or even kids? Observe how many of our actions are tainted with our desire to avoid fear; yet, no matter what we do, the feeling of unease never goes away. We may not experience this dreadful feeling all the time; however, it always seems lurking in the background.

You can only stop this treadmill by stepping away from it. Stop right here and look fear straight in the eye. When we recognize fear and accept that it will follow us wherever we might turn, we suddenly don’t need to do anything to escape this feeling.This fear is part of us and we face life as it is.
