Do you ever get anxious? Do you ever experience fear? Trust me. We all do. And we all have.
Anyway. I want to share this awesome story from the book by Pema Chodron when things fall apart.
There’s a story in it where a student was told by her teacher to do battle with fear and the day came, she was nervous, but she walked up to fear and she said, “Hey fear, what can I do to defeat you?”
And fear said, and this is by Pema Chodron. And this is awesome. Fear said, “My weapons are that I talk fast, I get close to your face. Then you get completely unnerved and do whatever I say. If you don’t do what I tell you, then I have no power.”
So wow. If you don’t do what I tell you, then I have no power. Can we have a different relationship with our fear? Can we realize that what the fear is telling us may not always be true. And can we just simply feel it in our body? It’s not easy. Give it a go. Let me know what happens.
