Fear V Courage

Fear works like this.

Something is presented to us that is unknown. This can be a person, an activity, a place, an idea, a job, a community, a thought.

As long as it is unknown to us it can create fear.

Fear then turns into worry and stress and the perception of a threat to our way of living.

This can lead to anger, attacks, prejudice and avoidance.

This then becomes how we react to anything new and it becomes a condition we live in.

Then we stall.

Courage works like this.

Something is presented to us that is unknown. This can be a person, an activity, a place, an idea, a job, a community, a thought.

As long as it is unknown to us it can create fear.

Fear can then turn into worry and stress and the perception of a threat to our way of living.

Or.

We can open ourselves up to the fear with the glimpse of hope that actually the worse case scenario might not happen.

This leads to experiencing the thing as harmless to us and the subsequent realization that we are still alive.

This can then lead to love, dialogue, appreciation and connection.

This then becomes how we react to anything new and it becomes a condition we live in.

And we move forward.
