What's to Fear?

“Nearly everything we’re afraid of is going to happen anyway, so what’s to fear? There is no secure or unchanging ground, and we make ourselves safe only when we see and accept the way life is. Utterly spontaneous and impermanent. When it is time to laugh, we laugh. When it is time to weep, we weep. We are cheated of nothing in life except that from which we withhold ourselves by ego’s narrow bounds.”
—Karen Maezen Miller, Hand Wash Cold

  1. Kathy good thoughts on fear. If we really consider how little control we have over certain things- we just have to let go and keep faith that God has everything under his watchful eye. Hugs!

  2. Debbie--I think we waste a lot of time being afraid of things that will never happen...or maybe it's just me. Trying to let go of worry and just live!
