Our HACKD Core Value #2 : Slay the dragon 🐉
Our dragons are our fears -- slaying doesn't necessarily mean "kill", it can also mean dance or laugh with... here's what I know, the prophetic FDR in his iconic "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself" was obviously speaking to something quite deep and true and enigmatic... because if you really think about it (and hi, I am Pam, and I really think about this stuff) if you follow what he says, we end up fearing fear and it's turtles all the way down. You get literally stuck fearing fear, being in fear, being stuck in separateness from life itself. So how about this: if we look at fear with love and gratitude and curiosity, and snuggle up to it, we can figure out what the next best move is. Do we need to release the fear because it isn't rooted in truth (which effectively "kills" it - it won't pop up anymore once fully released)... Do we get to dance with the fear because it is rooted in wisdom, telling us to slow down, speed up, measure twice, whatever the important wisdom is...? Do we get to laugh with the fear, because often times laughter will illuminate the darkness that the fear is shrouded in and take away the very power the darkness had in the first place...?
Whatever the case, our fears need to be dealt with. If we act from fear instead of love, whether we are aware of it or not, fear will always take us lower, the opposite direction of true elevated growth. It is by welcoming, embracing, loving our fears that we can be liberated to thrive. If we cannot find a way to welcome, embrace and love our fear, take a deep breath and move closer to those feelings anyway. Keep breathing and you will be able to see more clearly what your next best move is.
