FEAR: FUCK EVERYTHING AND RUN
Fear is an IllusionPosted on 03/21/08, 11:10 am
We feel it! But fear is based on perception and lies. Right now, I'm feeling fear about something and I must put that into perspective. My fear is based on my past, not on 'now'.

Geo, in my past, I did run. That's not what I'm supposed to learn here.

If we learn to control our mindů.
the source of all our fear, healthy and unhealthy, is eradicated.

Fear is definately a product of living either in the past or, in the future, ignoring the owning real life we have which is the present moment. I often check my inner feelings as an observer. It helps when I'm creating the belief in problems to stop, watch my breathes and say "But what is my problem NOW?" Not yesterday, not in five minutes. And, of course, the answer is always that I have no problems now, in this moment. I am alive, breathing, being.

joane, I agree! Fear IS living in the past and the future at the same time, but not in the present! I love that observation.

IN my past I was able to run too, but since 2002 I can't.
that was just a semantic kneejerk reaction...
I don't know how to fear, what can possibly happen now? I'll DIE? or get killed?
Yesterday I was told I probably have no more career on 4/18
My court date for the divorce is already scheduled for 4/18
So 2008 my career dies; 2006 my marriage died; 2004 my mother died; 2002 my health died (diagnosed with MS), 2000 my wealth crashed (lost big in the markets), 1998 got transfered out of my old position
What doesn't directly kill ya, makes ya stronger, right? My stbx brother went 2/5, coroner said 10pm the night before, so just after the superbowl ended. Heart attack, was alone, nobody there to call an ambulance. 42 and a few months.. kinda the same age when MS attacked me big time, but an MS attack doesn't kill like a heart attack.
Everything is relative.
What's FEAR. The Act of Being Afraid?
A gun pointing at me would put me into FEAR.
Passing thoughts trigger fear responses? You can either expand upon it, or dismiss it. Sometimes you can't easily dismiss something though. Ah, WTF do I know..
I'm Afraid I'm gonna have a Lot of time on my hands and nobody and nothing to do in a very short while from now. Since my separation my work became the only thing in my life, and the people who worked for me has been my support.
I don't know.. Should I be afraid? I really don't know what to expect, I think I'm still in shock. Lawyers, Doctors and who knows what else, is in store for me now, and it's all going to happen quick, very quick. And 350/hour.. every 2 years life as I know it changes, another major loss. *poof*
Wayne said when we and Marcelene split he got rid of everything in his Ft Lauderdale penthouse, had Maya his secy do it all. He just upped and moved to Maui.
I guess it's time to get rid of everything. 29 years of a career I don't need anything related to it any more; 24 years of marriage, I really don't need anything related to it.. well, pictures I'll keep.
I guess when you lose everything, what's left to fear.

Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose? My Father always told me "The more things you own, the more things you are owned by." I believe him.

Fear IS an illusion! Its almost like a place of comfort to most of us, being that it is so familiar to get ourselves all kinds of wound up. I no longer worry about tomorrow or yesterday or 5 minutes ago. Knowing that I am living my life honestly is one of the few things that I need to keep me going. I must say though, living IN the moment of NOW is much easier without my abuser in the shadows. Namaste
