"Fear cannot take what you do not give it."
~ Christopher Coan ~
Self-centered fear, being afraid that we're going to lose something we have or not get something we want, is a sticky trap. It makes us graspy and protective, defensive and snappy. It assumes the worst.
A sense of well-being, on the other hand, and confidence that is rooted in love instead of ego, is inclusive and expansive and allowing and assured.
And, while it's likely that we'd all rather have the one, it's equally likely that we'll all get caught up in the other.
I experience self-centered fear for what it is and surrender it to love.
