The Fear of Freedom

Fear seems to be a defining factor in our lives today. Manifesting itself as anxiety, procrastination, depression, addiction just to name a few. Why are we so gripped by this fear? It occurred to me recently that maybe we (myself included) are not ready to let go of fear. That perhaps this fear that cripples us from living to our full potential, this fear that inhibits us from experiencing love fully and in its truest form, is a comfort. It is the ultimate blanket in which we can hide under and give up before we even begin. 

In saying that it is not easy to release ourselves from the depths of this fear, but it is possible. The question is, do we really want to be free from it? Once I overcome my fear I will no longer have anywhere to hide. So the question we need to ask ourselves, are we ready to be free from fear? Do we actually and truthfully want it? My experience is that it is only when we can say with true conviction that we are ready, that we are tired of this feeling, that we don't want to live under this blanket anymore, that there has to be more to life than this fear. Then we may just give way to love, life and all of our dreams........
