Amazing how sometimes we’re gripped by fear
No matter what we’ve done year after year
Concerned that this time we’ll land on our face
Afraid that this moment we’ll fall from grace
No matter the success we’ve had before
No matter the times we’ve walked through a door
Can it be real what we have done
Can we bear to think that we have “won”
Don’t let me slide from power’s great favor
I need greater forces to serve as my savior
Don’t let me tumble from sweet success
I need guidance to emerge from my helplessness
Here I am longing for something real
I want aliveness I want to feel
Fear is a part of the great mystery
Part of the path on the way to be free
As you long for deep solace reverie that’s real
Rest and reflect as you form your own keel
Think of apprehension as a strong motivator
It catalyzes action and makes you much greater
What is it you fear no matter how many times you have done it successfully?
What is the doubt about?
Is your irrational mind speaking or are there real impediments to success this time?
Is there someone who might reassure you it will all turn out OK?
