Fearlessness - It Can Be Yours

April 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 155

Fearlessness.

What is it? It's a great word, a powerful word. It conjures ideas of doing anything, everything, without fear. Without hesitation. Not without knowledge, mind you, but with life and with gusto! The tarot deck represents the concept of Fearlessness by card zero, The Fool. This poor character is so often maligned. His name is The Fool, so he must be foolish, and no one wants to associate with that! But this isn't quite so. You see, The Fool has knowledge, but no wisdom. The Fool in the tarot deck is like someone who has lots of book smarts, but no street smarts; someone who is really intelligent, but has no common sense.

But it's because of this that he has absolute Fearlessness!

What is the source of this lack? It's because The Fool has no experience. But this is part of his gift. Since he does not have experience, he is not afraid of anything. He doesn't know from experience that something can hurt him. He knows the stove is hot, but he's never touched it.

This fearlessness enables him to do anything. He is off on adventures; he does things that he thinks are interesting or fun. He goes with it. He falls off his bike. He encounters rejection. He gets burned touching the stove. And he learns.

He learns! Does this mean that he'll be The Fool forever? No. Nothing stays stagnant. The sapling becomes the mighty oak. Like all things that live, he will evolve, grow and change. The challenge through learning is that he not let his lessons inhibit him. Just because the stove burns him, it shouldn't stop him from cooking. It should teach him to use a potholder. And maybe even have a fire extinguisher nearby.

What does it mean to me? What does all this mean to you? How can you incorporate the energy of Fearlessness into your life?

Think about this. What have you wanted to do, but have put off because you weren't sure if you had the skills? Or the strength? Or the gusto? What have you kept on the back burner because you were afraid of what your family might think? Or your friends? Or your coworkers?

Do it! Whatever it is, you will only know if you can do it if you try. Now I'm not suggesting that you see if you can fly without wings. We've obviously been around the block a few times, and left the skid marks to show for it. But you only get one lifetime, one time around as Bob Smith or Carolyn Jones, and at the end of it, do you really want to left with a bunch of "If I had onlies..." or "I should haves?" As Jim Rohn used to say, when the final score is tallied, let it show your wins and losses, but don't let it show that you didn't play!

I subscribe to the Maslovian concept of man as scientist. I've been working on myself for years, slowly and delightedly learning what makes me tick, and I'm certain that I've not even scratched the surface. I am pleased to present articles based on what I've learned in hopes that they inspire you toward your own greatness! http://www.ignacioceja.com.
