S:1266 Quote: Fearing the Unknown

(Quotes are capsules of information, reinforcement or enlightenment.)


“It’s not that we fear the unknown. You cannot fear something you do not know. Nobody is afraid of the unknown. What you really fear is the loss of the known. That’s what you fear.”

Anthony de Mello


Coaching Point: I had a hard time with this thought initially because it flew in the face of what I knew (or thought I knew).

But then I felt into the idea of “…the loss of the known.” And realized that’s it! I fear letting go of what I ‘know’ which ain’t so. Ya know?
