The Fear Less Now

Society looks at anxiety as a terrible thing. What if we can be just ok with our anxiety? Yes, it is uncomfortable sometimes. Yes, it is scary. What if we look at our anxious mind as not a broken piece of machinery? What if we see our mind as a perfectly/imperfect high precision machine that is alerting us with anxiety when our mind is going to fast?  Alerting us to slow down? Or that there is a temporary software glitch? Anxiety just moves through us in the moment. It does not exist. Anxiety is a barometer. It is not there to terrorize you. Anxiety is just the check engine light on the...

The Fear Less Now

Your personal mind is like your favorite television actor pulling the strings of thought and thinking. What we think is truth in the moment. Yet our personal mind is just making it up as we go along. Your personal mind does it’s best to create a story in the moment. To fill in the observational gaps.    What percent of it is actually true?    When we drop out of fearful thinking we drop back into the present moment.

The Fear Less Now

“There is mental health in all of you. You just don’t know it.” – Sydney Banks   What if we are not flawed or broken at all? What if the nature of who we are is ok?  What if we are not our psychology?   There are ways of looking at how we see the world and how we see ourselves without having to change anything.  What if I told you that we are not our thoughts, feeling, and behaviors?

Your personal mind is like your favorite television actor pulling the strings of thought and thinking. What we think is truth in the moment. Yet our personal mind is just making it up as we go along. Your personal mind does it’s best to create a story in the moment. To fill in the observational gaps. 
 
What percent of it is actually true? 
 
When we drop out of fearful thinking we drop back into the present moment. We finally see the present moment is not scary. The present moment is not anxiety ridden. It is your mind writing, producing, and directing the current melodrama. 
 
The more we so our perfectly imperfect personal mind using the tools of the trade called blame, judgement, and criticism the more we see the psychological innocence of it all. 
 
The more we see understanding, humility, and inner resolve the more we see our self-awareness muscle.  A huge muscle that has always been there. Covered up by layers of heavy thought and thinking. A gift that we all possess. Even in the most harrowing moments. Harrowing moments that feel unimaginable. Untenable. Excruciatingly painful. 
 
Don't take my word for it. Try it for yourself.
