None of us will ever escape fear.
Fear is part of being human; its job is to protect us. But with little mortal danger to actually protect us from these days, it gets bored and gets to work manifesting as resistance, procrastination, exhaustion, anger, and so forth and so on, and on and onnn.
If we let it run us, we end up emotionally, mentally, and creatively constipated.
BUT this is where it can get good.
Inside every pocket of resistance, just beyond the place where fear locked us up?
Right there, my friends, is a truckload of creative energy that wants to come through.
This is the good shit.
It’s the stuff we’re all searching for. The stuff of inspiration and incredible work, of artistic genius and supreme generosity. The very same creative energy that grows our flowers and our fingernails and turns sunlight into food. When we’re not busy limiting it, it is unlimited.
And if we let it come through, it will turn our stagnation into brilliance.
Freedom lives just on the other side of discomfort.
Fear is the signpost telling you exactly where to find it.
Look where it’s pointing,
and go there.
