A great Jedi Knight once said,
Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.
 
Do or do not… there is no try.
 
Fear, a base emotion that tries to rule us all.
 
Fear-based thinking leads down many paths.  Fear-based thinking causes me to squeeze my world for tighter control.  Fear-based thinking causes me to run in shear panic (or freeze in my tracks).  Fear-based thinking pushes away at that which I need most.  Fear-based thinking creates the world of misery I am so trying to avoid, which is why I am afraid in the first place.
 
My world is either based on fear or freedom.  There is no CHOICE in the middle.
 
Fear is a choice.  It is not thrust upon me.  I choose fear or I choose not.  There is no try not to be fearful.
 
I suppose one that is has lived 896 years might have gleaned a bit of insight.
