Awareness softens the fear

“And the attitude of faith is the very opposite of clinging to belief,
of holding on.

The attitude of faith is is to let go, and become open to truth, whatever it might turn out to be.”
— Alan Watts


Awareness is an expansive space where energy can flow more freely.   But awareness isn’t all lollipops and roses.  Awareness can be painful and challenging.  Sometimes you become aware that you’re in a situation that is threatening.

But you’re on the right road when you raise your awareness.   Because even being aware of something that’s painful is better than pretending it’s not there or numbing yourself to it.

Awareness softens the fear.  Once that happens, you’ll feel hope.  You’ll have choices.

It’s like coming out of the dark.
