Everyday for the next year I will be posting a new Inspirational Rule to consider living by. I hope you enjoy.
Rule #35 11/19/15
Be Guided By Faith Not Fear
Fearlessness is our natural state of being. When a child is born they do not fear; it is a learned trait, a conditioned life state brought to us after repeated conditioning and forced habits. There is a huge difference between fear and danger. Danger is real while fear is the illusion. Too often we have used fear to manipulate our children for the sake of them being “safe”, to manipulate others into changing into who we wish for them to be, to manipulate in general just to get our way. Fear drives us to be irrational, and make choices that do not serve our highest good.
Ridding ourselves of the fear is a process, one that requires courage through each endeavor, courage that comes from cultivating the habit of refusing to let fear dictate one's actions, courage which is renewed repeatedly in the face of harsh, unremitting pressure. Stay true to yourself and stay true to your passion. Fear can be overcome when you repeatedly refuse to allow it to dictate any portion of your life. ~Will “Story” Rivera
