"Fear is a doorway to understanding yourself better. The secret is to plumb the depth and breadth of your anxiety and confusion in relaxed levels of expanded awareness. Becoming more self-aware of your anxious feelings reveals the personal wisdom hidden within heartache and upset. "As we understand our self better, we become less alienated and more content — calmer, happier and more self-confident. Fewer random thoughts demand our attention. This or that occurs as this and that, and behavior becomes less reflexive — more appropriate, even-tempered and well reasoned. Soon, defensiveness yields to acceptance, competition surrenders to cooperation — lines fade, borders dissolve and our perspective expands to include the Wholeness of Life."
