Conquering any kind of fear is like getting away with something. I realized this today as I was waiting for my attorney to negotiate a contract for me that would change my life in pretty important ways. The thing about negotiation, though, is that you need to have two sides dedicated to finding some sort of common and mutually beneficial ending. It tends to not really work out if you’re not willing to give a bit, and take a bit.
On a good day, I have a lot of work to do. I don’t fear my life too much, and when I find some fear coming to the surface for me, I try to dig down to its source and move it out out somehow, usually with energy work. Not so with the rest of the world, I find, and I have to be careful, not to mention respectful, of how other people go about dealing with their own fear. Because it’s not the same as the way I do it. Fear of not being seen or heard, fear of not getting every piece of the pie. Everyone’s got something to fear.
Maybe it’s as much of a crime to deal with your fear as not. I mean, if everyone’s not doing it, you’re going to find yourself at the mercy of other people’s lack of awareness and/or effort at times. Even so, I like to make like Repo Man and do some crimes, maybe even get some sushi and not pay, or just keep working on my fear.
