Inner Journey: FEAR LIVES IN THE FUTURE
“We can’t fear the past. Fear is a future thing. And since the future’s all in our heads, fear must be a head thing.”
— Tom Payne

Susan Jeffers notes that 90% of what we fear usually does not materialize. So replace your images of disaster on the TV screen in your mind with awareness of what is really happening. And don’t allow your thinking to change channels.
“I have not ceased being fearful, but I have ceased to let fear control me.”
— Erica Jong
