Feeding Fear

November 26, 2011 at 10:03 am 1 comment

Fear is the possibility of something that I don’t like happening. It is a ‘possibility’, meaning that it is a fiction of my imagination.

It is my thoughts that create the story of the possibility and they generate the emotions of fear and horror that decorate the story of the possibility of something happening.

This habit we have of feeling fear is based on a very deep need to feel safe and secure. When I feel that someone or something will take something away from me without my permission then I feel challenged, insecure and thus fear.

We then feed that fear with our imagination. We make the story of something small, like a kitten, appear to be a lion. In this way fear can disable us, emotionally, mentally and even physically.

There are many possibilities in life. But to think of the worst possibility and then to feed it is something I decide to do.

Stop feeding fear and it will starve and disappear.
