BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, November 9th, 2010 by James Redfield in THE SECRET OF SHAMBHALA

“The problem with fear…is that it can be very subtle and sneak up on us quickly. You see, a fear image is always about some outcome we don’t want. We fear failing, embarrassing our selves or our families, losing our freedom or someone we love, or our own lives. The difficult part is that when we begin to feel such fear, it often turns into anger, and we use this anger to martial our forces and fight back against whoever we feel is the threat.

Whether we are feeling fear or anger, we have to realize that these emotions come from one source: those aspects of our lives we want to hold on to…Since fear and anger come from being concerned that we are going to lose something, the way to avoid these emotions is to be detached from all outcomes.”

James Redfield, in “The Secret of Shambhala”
