Daily Reminder # 399

Letting Neale Donald Walsh and God do the talking again today. I think this is a good one. I don't quite know how to live by it, but I think it's good to put it out there. It rings particularly strong to me because when I was in NYC and my agoraphobia was at it's strongest, paralysis is what my panic did to me. My body would literally go so rigid that it felt like my bones could break. It was not fun. I think that paralysis is at the root cause - at least in part - of the nerve damage that makes walking so difficult for me now. Life is strange.

On this day of your life, dear friend,
I believe God wants you to know...
..that fears are nothing more than states of  mind.

Napoleon Hill said that, and he was right. The moment
you move into fear over something ask yourself, "Why
am I making this real? What is there inside of me that
drives me to do this?"

There is a huge difference between fear and caution. 
Caution moves forward with care, fear stands still,
paralyzed. Avoid paralysis at all cost. It is not good
for the soul -- and it gets you nowhere.

Love, Your Friend....
