Death of Fear

365:228:35

Back to death: it is what most people fear the most. Probably not on a daily basis but it is feared. Especially during these times, the thoughts of having not done the things that have been so important for so long. The things we have put off because we are so busy doing what we do. The regrets of lying on your death bed and remembering all the things you had planned on doing and never took the time. The beginning is every day when we wake up. The end is when we fall asleep each night. The discoveries we make during that time of wake and fall are the most important.

Remember the people that made the most of their time here on earth. Remember their excitement for life, a real life of joy and happiness, even hardships and challenges are somethings to get excited about. Growth is in the hardships. We are faced with them now, we are faced with death, lonely death, the fear is real and when this is over, the survivors will weep. We will grieve for the ones who have been lost, for a simpler yesterday. We will grieve for the people that survive the virus but somehow cannot make it back to life, the changes that will come, the distance that will exist for years to come. The glances of fear while walking down the street, the thoughts of “please do not come close to me.” These things will linger for quite some time.

Death of the fear:

1. To become aware of the frightening thoughts. This allows acknowledgement that they are real and allowing us to be more cautious. We need to be cautious, this is a life of death situation.

2. Sit with the fear, understand it within yourself, accept that it is there and that it is there for a reason.

3. Begin to notice how acknowledging and understanding of the fear puts us in a calmer state of mind. To begin to accept this situation and see it as an opportunity, all hardships and challenges are just opportunities.

4. Notice the bright side, this will not be forever, this will change life for awhile but just like we have all grown a little more comfortable with distance with each passing day, we will grow comfortable with the world opening back up. We will adjust and readjust again and again.

5. Once we can see the opportunities, the death of fear can begin, the ability to move past this moment of quarantine, of distance and to move into freedom from fear.

It is a beautiful thing to be able to let go of fear and other things that may need to die out of your life. To have that freedom allows for growth of the soul, of the heart.
