S:1119 Great Fear: Of Not Getting What I Think I Want

(Great fears are barriers to experiencing your real life.)

 

[There are countless fears, yet few are of the level of the Great Fears. A Great Fear is noted by its commonness and its effect; it shows up in a large part of society and can have a numbing effect on one’s happiness.]

“… not getting what I think I want” may sound like strange wording, but it’s really quite descriptive.

What you – and everyone – really wants is to feel good/happy/etc., which is an internal experience. Nothing and no one can make you happy. It is a choice you make. You have control of how you feel.

When you think you depend on something external to you for your happiness, you know, at a deep unconscious level, that you are at risk for it not happening, that it is beyond your control. That’s the basis of this Great Fear.

When you shift from requiring your happiness to depend on external circumstances, this fear will disappear forever.

(If you think you do not have control of how you feel, it is because of some internal conditioning or programming in your mind. You may not be aware of the many simple tools and techniques available today to let you ‘change your mind and keep the change’!)
