The other side of Fear

What are you scared of?

As a child, I was terrified of death. To the point of convincing myself that it would not happen to me. That the doctors and scientists of the world would invent a way to stop it from happening. To me. As a child, this was fear-based, ego-based thinking. Not that I knew that, and I never voiced my darkest fear so couldn’t get a better way of understanding it. Bless.

Fast forward to adulthood and there is a path we have each followed to understand life and death. I have lost friends and family so very loved, and each time they have gone with dignity and grace, and I’ve come to face a common fear that none of us will get out of this alive.

Have you read that everything you want is on the other side of fear? As I learn more about our universe, the more I realise it is an unreal gift to be alive. That our human condition shouldn’t block the realisation of how infinite and special we all are on this planet. And to embrace that we are spiritual creatures having a human experience, not the other way around.

Each time I am reminded of how mortal we are, I also see how lucky we are to be mortal. From there, there are shifts in my life, I can choose love over fear, take it up a notch, change gear, and show the universe that we take none of this for granted.
