My greatest fear is that I'm not fearful of anything... does that count???
I really truly am not scared of anything. My spirituality has allowed me to learn and adapt enough to this world that nothing within this realm
scares me to the point of fear. In fact, I'm a fear junkie, I try to find stuff all the time that will scare me, hence the reason I love watching
horror movies because I just want something that will give me a thrill... I love trying to scare myself into fear but it just doesn't happen... I
know being scared and having a fear are two totally different things, however they do go hand in hand.
BUT, I guess if I had to choose something, it would be that I fear I am unable to use my full potential (which you mentioned in your OP). I have a
lot of knowledge racked up in my brains, and I put it to great use towards others, but find myself not taking my own great advice and I tend to follow
the wrong paths most of the time. So really, all we have, and it's been said so many times, to fear is fear itself.
There is truly nothing to be afraid of. You may think you're afraid of something, and if you think you are, face it. There is nothing better than
an adrenaline rush... it's a great high I must say. Facing death can be fun if you allow it to be. And if facing death can be fun, can't anything
be then? Death is the ultimate fear for most people; if you were to go and ask every single living person what they were most fearful of it would
average out to be death. But why? Because of the unknown? So really, you're afraid of the unknown, not death itself, but what comes after (or
As I said my spirituality allows me to cope with these sort of things. I have never been afraid of death since I was very young. I don't exactly
know why, and it may have seemed odd to many people since I never minded doing crazy things at such a young age. I've done some things that most
people would find insane, but I've enjoyed doing them very much so. Go out and try something new that scares the hell out of you, you will find it
gives you the rush of a lifetime, although I wouldn't recommend jumping from a plane without a parachute, but I'm sure that would give the ultimate
rush, now wouldn't it? Ha!
On a side note... maybe I fear I will never truly find my inner self to the fullest extent I wish to... we, as in the masses, have so much power we
can unlock with our minds if we just focused on the right priorities. However our everyday lives take up all the space in our minds and give us the
illusion we see as this 'everyday life.'
Imagine if the whole world were to draw a blank mind, a clean slate if you will, and ponder the same thoughts at the same time... all the energy put
forth would open doors unimaginable to us all... ah, wishful thinking is fun, maybe someday I'll stop doing it and try to put it all to good use.
