I was wondering if you would help me out with a little experiment? I want you to share your fear with me.
Pause for a few seconds, and take a few slow breaths. Just long enough to really notice them, and to let the buzz in your head from being in a consumption mode fade into silence. Then, think about what you’re most afraid of right now. You probably already have a name for it… a shorthand way of describing to yourself what it is. But, don’t just say the name. Think about what it is and what it feels like.
Now, if you’re willing, would you please send me an email describing your fear? I don’t want to know your simple name for the fear, but rather a description of what you are afraid of, or why it causes you fear.
No one will read this except for me, and I will write you back.
