Triumph over fear

At the root of fear is the knowing that life has value. If you had nothing to lose, such as your existence, the people you love, your resources and abilities, there would be nothing to fear.

Love makes fear possible. Thus with love you can triumph over fear.

When you have much to fear it is because you have much to live for. And it is precisely in purposeful living that you exert the power of love to successfully navigate through fear.

Fear can be acutely informative. Love enables you to make purposeful, beneficial, strategic use of that information.

When you feel fear you are also feeling the power and the potential of love. Make it your choice to put that power to good use.

Acknowledge the fear, gain insight and take energy from it. Then focus that energy, along with your attention and your actions, on all the meaningful and generous living you can do.

— Ralph Marston
