This Fronzdal article is outstanding. After reading this I feel I fear my fear a bit less. Fearlessness means that it is easier for me to accept myself as I am with my flaws, more easily. Many of my experiences with others include fear and fearlessness. I fear that I will not be liked if others found out who I really am, and on the other hand, I find some acceptance that it's okay not to be liked as much as I want to be liked. Sharon Begley, Reuters science writer, and psychiatrist Schwartz say: “Through mindfulness you can stand outside your own mind as if you are watching what is happening to another person rather than experiencing it herself….Mindfulness requires direct willful effort, and the ability to forge those practicing it to observe their sensations and thoughts with a calm clarity of an external witness….One views his thoughts, feelings, and expectations much as a scientist views experimental data - - that is, as a natural phenomena to be noted, investigated, reflected on and learned from. Viewing one’s own inner experience as data allows (one) to become, in essence, his own experimental subject.” Through using their idea, one can be highly afraid yet calmly say to themselves in a semi-unafraid manner: "I notice I'm afraid."
Thanks for the opportunity to respond. Warm and kind regards to everyone.
