Fearful Thinking

Saw Dune 2 and reminded of the "Litany Against Fear". What should our relationship with fear be? How should we prepare for it and how should we respond when it appears? Should we attempt to eliminate the feeling from our lives?

  • Types of fear: fatalistic, response to threat, anxiety, dread, etc.
  • Perspectives on fear: compare to other threats, long term vs immediate short term comparison
  • Response to fear: lean into fear, gravitate towards your goals and desires regardless of feelings, be the narrator of your own movie and choose your thoughts and feelings in response to fear
  • What is fear: fuel, a guidepost, a warning, an overweighted warning
