Just at a glance I read the word "Fear" Why do people run from Fear, the dread of the word causes us to cringe to avoid. But when I read that we should welcome fear in our life. Wow. that is shocking. To live life in a state of fear. False evidence appearing real as it is so stated. To worry about things that may not happen. However if you focus on that fear it is sure to happen. Unconsciously we focus on the negative instead of the positive. For instance the state of our nation. The recession, the inflation, the depression, high gas prices, foreclosure, joblessness, sleeplessness, irrational thinking.

just at a glance. that's all.

It takes a real effort to be positive sometimes, though I have no idea why. It does seem that we notice the negative things more easily than we do the positive things.

I recently took Alexa up on her '30 day challenge' (the post is worth looking at, its in the main forum). It really helped me to put my attention on the positive instead of the negative. And one of the really great things about it is that more good things started to happen for me. I guess we have to train ourselves to have better habits! :D

Blessed Be, StarAngel

Hi Iris,

A big 'Hello and Welcome' from England!

You're so right about us putting so much focus on fear; investing energy into what could go wrong. How come we don't ruminate on great things :-) This being human can be a complicated thing at times. Eckhart answered a lot of questions on this subject in his book 'A new earth' which you may have read. It's as if we are hard-wired to concentrate on the negative stuff and it takes such discipline move away from it. Detachment is key for our overall happiness. Remembering that Love is all that's real. But why is it so flippin' difficult? Maybe its part of our journey here to become as present and real as we can be.

Look forward to seeing you around this wonderful community.
