Fear is one of the most fundamental emotions. In fact, the amygdala, the area of the human brain that processes fear, is located in the center of the brain which suggests that fear is an emotion that all creatures have. Fear keeps us safe by reminding us of danger. However, the problem with fear is it can cause us to “play it safe” instead of taking a risk and reaping the rewards. It also can affect whatever task we are working on. For example, if we are hunting down a deer, fear can cause us to make a mistake and scare the deer away.

Our caveman (woman) ancestors knew that fear was a problem when hunting. So I purport that they learned to develop a fear-free way of life. By following all the instructions that their ancestors passed on, it enabled them to acquire the skills they needed to live a fear-free lifestyle.

Now, in our modern world, fear is a big problem. For example, anyone who watches the news can attest to the problem of fear. But how do we escape the grip that fear has over us? The answer is to replace it with love. If there is one thing we need more of in this world, it is love. By replacing our fear with love, we are empowering ourselves to live a fear-free lifestyle and to love more freely.

By letting go of fear, we open up the possibilities in our lives that we never thought possible. We still need some basic fear, particularly in new situations. But once learning something is dangerous, simply avoid it instead of reactivating the fear response every time it appears. When we start to love more freely, our lives will change for the better forever.
