Fear of Not Having Enough

Fear is such an incredible subject, isn't it?
When you think about it as simply energy, yet, until we experience this truth, we tend to run from fear.
It has been through entering the path of self enquiry that I began to meet my fears as they rise.
I remember when a very persistent fear rose in the middle of the night. The fear was an old one, the fear of not having enough money to meet all of my families needs and commitments.
I awoke to the sensation that I can only liken to having a baby elephant sitting on my chest, with an intense desire to escape. Thankfully I could see the opportunity to meet with this old persistent fear, face to face. When I stopped completely and remained still
, observing the energy moving through my body, observing my mind wanting to escape and allowed myself to emerge into the fear, rather than escaping it, something beautiful unfolded.
It simply amazed me how fear dissipated, and what moments before had seemed so restricting suddenly became expansive, yet spacious and peaceful. I realised in that moment that the saying that "Our greatest fear, is fear itself" is so very true.
