I must not fear.

As Earl Nightingale said, "You become what you think about." If you spend your time and thoughts in fear, things to fear will come into your life, because that is where your focus is.

To quote the current Dalai Lama:
"We should try never to let our happy frame of mind be disturbed. Whether we are suffering at present or have suffered in the past, there is no reason to be unhappy. If we can remedy it, why be unhappy? And if we cannot, what use is there in being depressed about it? That just adds more unhappiness and does no good at all."

:) I think this entry.

But isn't every emotion something to be cherished? Even if we call it "bad".
If we can't stop our fear. Perhaps we should embrace it.
