Letting Go with Guy Finley

There is no “preparing” to be fearless. Fearless actions don’t mean one acts without fear. Becoming fearless requires challenging fear’s right to rule one’s heart… until one sees, for oneself, that while the feel is real, the why of fear is (always) a lie (based on negative imagination). And once one sees this truth, then one realizes one’s former complicity with fear. This marks the beginning of the end of fear’s hold because, slowly but surely, more and more, one sees that fear is a creation of one’s own mind; one sees how it first makes up some horrible image about a time to come — and then resists its own dark imagining. The only thing left to do with some fear once one sees these truths is to consciously walk through it…much as a stage actor walks, without fear, through the dancing images of flames being projected on stage to create a fearful effect.
