Erasing fears

from Kissing Fish Facebook page

 

FEAR= False Evidence Appearing Real

FEAR= Forgetting Everything (is) All Right (Alright)

When I saw this image on Facebook, I was delighted to contemplate the idea of putting my fears right out there in front of me and then wiping them away. Fears love lurking in the darkness and sneaking out and snagging us, dragging us under. When we name them and claim them, shine the light on them, often they slink away, since we are no longer giving them power over us.

Imagine have a wall on which you can scrawl your deepest fears and have others witness them, and likely acknowledge that they have the same fears. It might make you feel less alone, more in alignment with those who share the planet with you.

So that I practice what I preach, I will offer my most profound fears….

* being incapacitated and needing to rely on others

* stepping on someone else’s toes

* losing loved ones (even though I don’t fear death)

* not having enough money to pay bills

* feeling like I can never do enough or be enough

* being controlled by someone else

*anger…mine and that of others

* letting people down

* letting myself down

* not keeping commitments

* being judged as being unkind or unloving

* settling for less than what I want in any aspect in my life

*missing out on a committed relationship

* losing my memory (or marbles, as my mother used to say)

* not being all that the Divine would have me be

Break out the eraser!

Pity Party
I had to giggle when I saw this meme, created by Theresa Byrne, another contributor to The Good Men Project,  since it was sucked right out of my spinning mind. Many's the time I have petulantly pouted about the way life events were unfolding. I have stomped and stormed, raved and raged (interna

Making The Ordinary Come Alive
  I became an adoptive parent in 1992, when diminutive blond haired, green eyed Adam became my son. I like to say that my stretch marks are on my heart, not my hips. A high energy kiddo with his own ideas of how life should be, there were times when I questioned my ability to keep up with hi

Changing the Dishes
  Fellow Good Men Project author Thomas Fiffer shared his insights about the holiday of Passover. I saw his blog entry this morning as I was contemplating what to write for today's Bliss Blog. Having been raised in a Jewish home, Passover was eagerly anticipated all year long. The pre-holi

Self Imposed Slavery
Tonight marks the first night of Passover which commemorates the journey from slavery to freedom of the Jews in Egypt who were compelled to work at the peril of their own lives.  Jews around the world (and others who are invited guests as they were in my childhood home) will gather to celebrate a

That's What Makes You Strong
  Another soul passed into the Light yesterday to join the celestial choir. I first heard Jesse Winchester's music in the 80's. As a consummate singer songwriter, he had  a gift for vivid imagery that took the listener along for the ride. Songs such as Mississippi, You're On My Mind,
