a paradox?

Closely associated with the Southern California surf culture, the "No Fear" concept is a deeply spiritual idea.

As one approaches fear-free living, the unlimited possibilities of the Universe begin revealing themselves. With time and experience, these possibilities steadily become clearer and more tangible. We are then often surprised to realize that "the impossible" is actually within our reach.

The fearless among us have transformed human experience. Imagine a world where every single human being was living a life free of fear. In a Universe of infinite possibilities, this -- by definition -- is one of the possibilities we could (and perhaps should) intend for our species. We must simply neutralize and abandon our unfounded fear that we are incapable of being fearless. It could be said that fear (along with the negative energy that emanates from it) is a malicious virus that ought to be quarantined and eliminated from the "software" of Universal Consciousness.

These musings are summarized by the words of one of the most extraordinary men to have ever walked on this planet, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."

The paradox: is one practicing fear by fearing fear itself.
