There is a part of all of us that wants to stay small, it is afraid to reach our personal optimum because this is unknown territory and when something is unknown, the mind will want to avoid it. But we are dynamic, ever-evolving beings and moving into unknown places is where the magic of life lies. It’s in these spaces we discover deeper and more expanded versions of ourselves. I’ve come to know that if something catches my attention and my immediate reaction is fear, then I need to move into it to move past it. We of course still have our survival instinct that will keep us safe, living a life with less fear doesn’t mean we are all going to become extreme risk takers. Moving past the Small Self so we can grow into our Higher Self takes a real honest commitment to look at the fears we carry around us and ask them to be a vehicle to truth.
