Stepping from Fear Into Love

How to claim your power and Joy


Bill Poett

Fear contracts – love expands, fear repels – love embraces, fear destroys – love creates, fear is selfish – love is serving, fear hurts – love heals, fear turns-off – love turns-on.

For twenty five years I’ve studied the nature of fear and energy. You can’t serve as a close quarter combat instructor without addressing fear, because fear is our greatest enemy and the most destructive force on earth. Combat is energy; life is energy. You win in combat by learning how to connect to and enhance your energy while using your opponent’s energy against them.

It’s only been in the last few years that I have shifted my focus to the study and nature of love and that is literally when my life began to expand in ways I never could have imagined.

On June 12, of 2012 I discovered quite accidentally that a friend and former martial arts associate had died. He was a brilliant, inspiring man in his early fifties with a beautiful wife, a young son and owner of several of the most successful martial arts schools in America. As the day progressed the nightmare deepened,  he hadn’t just died, he committed suicide, as I tried to wrap my brain around this horrific fact I got hit with another darker bit of truth, he was about to be arrested as a serial child molester.

These progressive shattering’s drove me into the mountains of Yosemite for an awakening that has changed my life and is changing the lives of thousands of men and women around the world! High on a cliff’s edge surround by the most awe-inspiring beauty I prayed for all I was worth. I had to know why our hearts are being broken over and over again; I had to know why there is so much suffering and pain in the world?

I received an answer. The vast majority of suffering we experience is self-inflicted. We have walled our hearts off from love, God and each other in a futile attempt to hide from pain, and this separation is quite literally killing us. We have given into our fears and they have become the dominant drivers in our lives.

We are afraid that there isn’t “enough”; enough love, money, opportunity and joy and so this has become our experience! In a knife fight if you are afraid of getting cut, if you focus on the knife and not getting cut, guess what is guaranteed to happen? You will get cut!

In a knife fight you must focus on winning, you must focus on how you will control the situation and prevail. The attacker’s knife is not the weapon, you are the weapon and it’s time to let your attacker know fear!

Your body, just like nature, will not lie to you! When a human is in abject fear they will automatically and instinctively....TO CONTINUE CLICK HERE!
