What you always wanted to know about fear … but were too afraid to ask

Fear is a primal element of the human condition. It is natural, necessary - and not always helpful. Fear has two primary functions. The natural side of fear is intrinsically tied to our sense of survival - it’s a self preservation mechanism.

Give Thanks To The Opposition

To be in a consistent state of unconditional love, thankfulness, and gratitude, has been touted for thousands of years as an enlightened mind-set.
