A Note from Mark Felber

Most of the so-called bad things that happen in people's lives are due to unconsciousness...they are self-created--or rather ego-created--"drama." When you are fully conscious, drama does not come into your life anymore. The basic ego patterns are designed to combat its own deep-seated fear and sense of lack. They are resistance, control, power, greed, defense, and attack.

Some of the ego's strategies are extremely clever, yet they never truly solve any of it's problems, simply because the ego is the problem.

~The Power of NOW by Eckhart Tolle (p. 150)

Eleven seminarsFear: A Little Word With a Big Voice

Fear talks to people. And when they listen, this is what can happen:

Sheila loved to dance but wouldn't go out on the dance floor with her fiancé because she thought she'd look clumsy and ridiculous.

Arnie knew he deserved a raise, but he was so nervous about approaching his boss, he never asked for one.

Delia's fear of bears was so great that she wouldn't go on a camping trip with her friends. And their campsite wasn't even in bear territory.

Fear is that nattering voice inside our heads that says, you can't, you shouldn't, what if.... Fear keeps us from taking risks that might enrich our life or holds us back from doing some things we need to do. Experience new and exciting vistas? Accomplish something really great? Fear says, "Not on your life."
