Me: I’m not going to use you again, fear, to talk myself out of reality. I understand that things actually can be simple if I don’t use you to talk myself out of the ease of that reality.
Fear: No! You need to be better. There is something wrong with how you do. Try this thing. Try that thing. Get yourself as far as possible away from simplicity.
Me: No. I tried that before and it doesn’t work. It doesn’t make me better. What I am good at and love to do is simple and easy for me. I am not going to use you to talk myself out of that reality again. I will rest in the discipline of simplicity. I will rest in letting myself top out doing what I love because it is a joy for me. I will not use you, fear, to talk myself out of that reality.
Fear: But, what about this person? What about that outcome? What about the consequences?
Me: What about them? The simplicity of doing what I love and all the work that entails is a reality that I get to inhabit as a joy and a freedom. And it is simple. I have to do the work, but it is the simple work of simply doing that work. I will not let you talk me out of the simplicity of that reality without you. Goodbye fear.
