Fear is an acronym in the English language for, " FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL"
Neal Donald Welsh
" Theres is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear."
-1 John 4:18 NKJV
Fear is the path to the dark side, fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering."
- Yoda, in Star Wars: Episode IV A new Hope (1977)
" Death is not the biggest fear we have, our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive - the risk to be alive and express what we really are."
Don Miguel Ruiz
"Listen with your ears, not your fears." Thom Rutledge
The above quotations are all so true and describe very well the truth about fear. Yet, all of us on daily basis, spend countless hours fearing others, fearing circumstances, fearing ourselves, fearing poverty, fearing failure, fearing rejection and/or abandonment, etc. Most of our fears never materialize but we keep fearing.
Paul Dalton had an obsessive desire to find the antidote to fear. He searched through books, exercises, interventions etc. One day by chance he heard a phrase that stopped him in his tracks, he understood at that moment with clarity, that the absolute antidote to fear could not be found in books, and exercises but rather in the acceptance of a simple truth. The phrase he heard was: " THE QUESTION IS IRRELEVANT, LOVE IS THE ANSWER."
Some years ago I had my own shift in perception: My fears became the Fuel of my Faith. Each of my fears was a teacher. Each of my fears when dealt with, processed and surrendered, inevitably brings me closer to my Conscious Contact with my Creator and with my Authentic Self.
Yes, the antidotes to fear are ACCEPTANCE, LOVE AND ACTION! Like Nike said: JUST DO IT! In other words face the fear and do it anyway!
Thank you for being the loving beings that you are.
