I tend to agree with you on this Amber. It does bring on more fear for me. I have even tried things that I fear sometimes it works and a lot of times it does not.

Amber... I so resonate with the quote. It took my poor therapist forever to get me to not only face my fears, but then to continue to sit with fear or whatever other emotion I am experiencing instead of burying it. I often bury my fear with anger!!!

What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.

Uh.... WOW. I'm always trying to escape from it. I can see what he is saying - if you picture such things as dynamic energies then not learning about fear or understanding it would just bring it on more.
