The End of Fear and the Present Moment
One of the most important keys to living a life free from fear is facing up to the reality that you may be wrong. Why are we so afraid? Why do we wallow in the fear of the worst, live in the shadow of worst-case scenarios, and react with horror to even minor accidents as though they represent the end of the world?
When I look back on my childhood I recognize that I was a fearful person. I hid away from people, avoided social contact, and avoided any event that would bring attention to me. To me, these actions were a direct result of my inability to face up to the truth about who I really was. I believed that by not facing up to who I was, I had left the door open for fear to overwhelm me. Once I gained access to my inner core of strength, however, I realized that I was no longer a slave to fear.
Today, I am able to take the time to listen to myself for whenever there is a need to get rid of my fear. I no longer allow fear to run my life. Instead, I live each day knowing that I am in charge of my own destiny. I am free to choose how I want to respond to every situation. As I face the end of fear and set my heart free, it will enable me to live a life filled with happiness, peace, and joy – because I no longer fear what I am afraid of!
