The point of Consciousness Explorations is to help us learn to work with our consciousness in an effective way. When we can do this we can live a life we want to live and create a world we want to live in. Learning to work consciously with our thoughts and emotions is perhaps on of the most important goals of our lives. So what about FEAR?! Is there a way to work effectively with fear?
Here is Eckart Tolle’s take on the subject. https://youtu.be/LiEU84nHEcY
Throughout history there have been examples of fears causing people to go mute. In fact, our nervous system is designed that way. When we experience intense fear, a region of the brain called Broca’s area, completely shuts down. This region is responsible for our ability to speak. So in fear, we become mute. We lose our voice.
Fear has the power to control, and to throw us off course. It draws us into what we don’t want to create. The compelling power of this spooky world wherein we have no control, is inexplicable. Fear causes us to make decisions that are not in our highest good. In fear we struggle to fix things that may not even exist. A life of fear-based decisions will leave us wondering what to do next. It is one based on putting out fires (usually imaginary fires at that) of trying to survive rather than on striving towards a bigger vision with persistent faith and conviction.
Fear is one of the few emotions that I can find little use for. Anger seems to allow a focused energy, anxiety, even, can be seen as a type of motivating force, but fear always seems to isolate me and leave me feeling paralyzed. I wonder if any of you can see something of value in fear.
Join us this week as we explore ways to over-come fear using our creative energies.
