Fear one of the most powerful emotions, energy of our being. It comes over us without us noticing it; if we try to avoid it, say we will not be fearful, it seems futile as it seeps in, taking over. Why do we allow fear to take over, or do we allow it, does it just appear or can we find a way out of it?
Certain events, moments in our life bring on uncontrollable fear, it grabs hold of us, does not let go; and we often become dependent upon it, find it comforts us in a strange unsettling way. The diagnosis of cancer; suddenly brings up our fear level, brings it to the top, grabs hold of any sensible thinking, taking over of how we think. We do not even want to think, we just let our minds race about, sending memories forward, thinking these memories are all we have left, there will be no more memories made, our lives are over, cancer has taken over.
We can also allow fear to take over our rational thinking, it tries telling us fear is a safety mechanism and if we believe this, we allow fear to control our lives. When we fear an outcome, we allow fear to comfort us, prevent us from thinking reasonably.
I recently observed the power of fear, so powerful the fear control over the rational thinking system quite literally has put a life in grave danger. The fear of what a diagnosis could be completely took control, making if sound logical to wait, that time was on his side when in fact, time was the enemy, just like the fear was; but fear made the waiting decision seem a good idea.
This is a time when HOPE is the greatest tool, a weapon against fear; when you have hope there is peace in your thinking, you allow your universal intuition take over, suppress fear; pushes fear away, allowing an open clear mind. Fear allowed to take over your rational thinking, keeping you from facing a diagnosis, where you can use HOPE to discover practical solutions, is putting yourself on a road to disaster.
We cannot allow fear to control us, when it prevents us from making rational decisions, feat is allowed to kill us, setting us up for a premature death; HOP E is there, we must keep fear out of our live equation. After observing fear taking a life when HOPE could have made such a decision, we must work hard to prevent fear from taking such control. If you see fear readying itself to take a life; throw HOPE in the face of such fear.
I say, do not fear the diagnosis, there is always hope; do not avoid hearing the diagnosis by avoiding tests; use HOPE to face fear head on; it is our only weapon against fear. When we allow fear in our lives we jeopardize our safety; fear kills when we allow it control over hope.
