Outlasting Fear

Spend our lives learning how to make this an unnatural response

Six great quotes about worry

 

(photo: iPhone screen shot – from one of yesterday’s many emails)

It’s natural to worry about how we’ll get through tragedy, pain, and uncertainty.

Worry is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained. – Arthur Somers Roche

And because it’s so natural, we actually have to spend our lives learning how to make this an unnatural response, not an auto-response.

Not worrying is not an act of denial, nor a manifestation from not caring.

It is strength. Growth. Victory. Wisdom.

The main worry in life is….

dying
I must learn to not fear death - there is a special mindset that makes this possible. I write about that everyday.

The main worry in life is not in dying, but in never truly learning how to live. When we have lived with purpose, joy, peace, and love, dying is our final great earthly accomplishment.

Joyful Anticipation

Do you look forward to each new day?

I mean, with a joyful anticipation? Not an awful dread.

This can be challenging to say the least. You have to suspect that some readers may not believe I have much experience with Hell, with challenges, problems, obstacles, fear, failure, struggle, grief, agony, hopelessness, strife, worry, doubt.

Do all of you have a ton of experience with these things?  Okay then, I rest my case. We all do. No one is immune.

Then why am I so optimistic and “joyful”?

Great question.  Some people think I’m crazy. A weirdo.  Or, worse, a fake.

It’s taken like 50 years, but, I’m totally cool with it all. Finally.

One of the secrets to being joyful, is so simple, you’re not going to believe it. And it brings great joy to tell you that tomorrow, I’ll reveal January’s “value”.
