What Am I Afraid Of?

To heal means to make whole. If we want to heal our world of its divisions and wounds, we have to heal our minds first so we can access our potential to create a free and peaceful world. Healing involves letting go of the fear that blocks our wisdom. Fear is tricky and can present itself as anger, judgement, guilt, blame, jealousy, or any thought or emotion that leads to our feeling upset and not peaceful. That awareness can help us to say to ourselves, "What am I afraid of? Something I've seen or heard or thought in the past, or that I'm thinking might happen in the future? Something someone else says I should be afraid of?" When we are willing to let go of fear, our first step is to say "How can I look at this situation differently so I can be more peaceful within?"
