Facing the Fear of Loosing the Known

What you FEAR is fearing you.
Everything you fear resides in the KNOWN.
Fear can only exist in your thoughts.
Fear is relative and it does not exist on its own.
Then the UNKNOWN can never cause fear because fear arises only from thoughts and thoughts belong to the realm of the known. 
Since our mind is not able to produce anything that is totally unknown thus we can only relate to the possibility of loss of the known. 
What we really fear then is the loss of the known, the predictable and the obvious.

And having COURAGE is to have the PASSION for the UNKNOWN and to step over the edge of familiarity and comfort.

To have a love affair with unpredictable and unexpected. And to know the difference between knowing and understanding….

Kasia Jamroz CPCC, ACC, Founder of Alyka Solutions L.L.C, and 50 Deeds of Love Non -Profit Organization, believes in irresistible power of choice and living life congruent with our highest values. Thriving on depth, authenticity, true connection and mutual growth. Interested in togetherness and connectedness. Loving “what is” instead what it is supposed to be.
