As I sit here on another tenuous "severe weather afternoon" in Norman, Oklahoma I'm reminded of the energy of fear and how it has a way of sneaking its way into our lives, in insidious and frequently undermining ways. Fear, in my opinion, is the one emotion that drives the other low frequency emotions. Some people are more hard-wired to recognize their fearful thoughts, while others allow it to smolder undetected in this case it often fuels other complimentary emotional frequencies like envy, anger or sadness.
There is "appropriate" fear, or what is more aptly referred to as "right action". This is the impulse that rises which informs the organism (your body) to run, jump, hide or attack if necessary. This impulse happens involuntarily when we are faced with an immediate or impending threat to our physical survival (or the survival of something or someone who cannot protect itself).
