“Indeed our hearts are golden treasures, but a true tragedy would be to conceal your inner gold because you are afraid of someone stealing it or it falling and breaking. There is no love in fear. The great wisdom of the ages always tells us the more we Love the more of it you receive. Love is not a giving or a taking, it is a state of being – a one way street of allowing, accepting and holding a space for all things to be exactly as they are. Fear not that your heart will be broken or stolen. Love becomes love. Give it away with no expectation of return and soon you will be having a love affair with the whole world!” - Jackson Kiddard

Some thoughts on Love VS. Fear from Steve Chandler: (think perfect love casts out fear!)
Here's something that helped me understand the nature of fearlessness. There is a fearless state that is simple joy-the joy of love, and the relaxation that is fearlessness.

To understand it better, let's look at the concept of darkness. Darkness isn't anything. Darkness is merely the absence of light, and when I bring light into the room there is no more darkness.

I didn't have to overcome the darkness, I didn't have to remove the darkness. Darkness is nothing at all. It's the absence of light.

Well, fear is the same thing. Fear is the absence of love. So I don't have to overcome the fear, battle the fear, be brave, and feel the fear and do it anyway. If enough love comes in, there is no more fear. Fear wasn't anything to begin with but the absence of love.

It's interesting that most people that I talk to or coach or work with or associate with have confusion about the word "fearless." They think fearless means "brave" or "courageous" or "bold" or something like that; but it's really important to see that it's nothing like that.

In fact it's not even similar to that.

Being fearless is absolute, relaxed, inner peace, relaxation, connection to the universe, happiness, deep happiness---not surface pleasure. And there's no thought of fear. There's no feeling of fear whatsoever. There's no idea of fear.

The feeling is like "why would I be afraid of that?" That's a fearless state.

There's so many things we do throughout the day in a fearless way that we don't even notice the fearlessness, but anything we feel real love about-when we are really loving a person, or we're really loving an event or something-playing a song on the piano, or jogging, or running, or playing volleyball, or something we're really loving that we do.

A lot of us have aspects of work that we just love and so we're caught up in the present moment flow of it and there's no fear at that time until we starting thinking of the future.
