“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

On a more mundane, practical, concrete level fear flows trillions from personal to corporate accounts daily. According to the September 2019 Annual Report On The Insurance Industry published by the Federal Insurance Office, U.S. Department Of The Treasury (p 99):

  • What would you do with extra money gained by dramatically reducing your insurance premiums (by reducing your fears fueled by doubt, guilt, shame or worry).
  • With more banked wages how would daily life change? Remember doubt, guilt, shame and worry feed fears so well they inspire heart-attacks, strokes and substance abuse to cope with increasing stress.

Two: gavel guilt.

Over the past week how many times did guilt zap you? Guilt (like thunderstorms) build until we witness lightening strikes accompanied by crashing thunder. Migraines strike like lightening; squalls of depression crashes our health. Ongoing guilt erodes us until we’re absolutely dead tired from constantly treading water. Life is too short to drown in guilt! Right? When guilt strikes ask yourself a simple question: what inspired this guilt? Explore (versus analyze) your thoughts. Before you know it you’ll find feelings of guilt passing like thunderstorms do every day.
