3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Fear can be a useful primal emotion in genuinely dangerous situations - it makes you alert, sends energy to your muscles, promotes blood-clotting in case of injury and raises the pain threshold, but in every other situation, fear is the root of all evil. It can on one hand cause us to unnecessarily hurt people and on the other it can paralyse us, preventing us from taking the risks necessary to take our lives forward.
My increasing enlightenment has caused me to shed fear and thus be liberated from its tyranny. This has led me to cast off the shackles of "duty" to those undeserving and given me a highly cynical, aggressive and confrontational attitude to those who are in any kind of authority. I consider this a good thing, and I have got treated a lot better as a result.
It has also caused me to throw out the whole concept of doing what I should and instead I do what I can. I have abandoned security as a priority, embraced uncertainty and risk and focused on my objectives, dealing with obstacles and setbacks as and when they arise.
I do of course still experience the emotion of fear, but when it arises, it doesn't stop me doing stuff - I feel fear and do it anyway. The consequence has been to enter a "Golden Age" of happiness that I am enjoying immensely.
