Kidneythieves: Free Dominguez recording “Floating Angels” from the forthcoming release The Invisible Plan, coming fall 2011
Fear is Afraid of This
(A lyric from “Floating Angels” off The Invisible Plan.)
I remember writing this phrase down sometime when I was in NYC summer 2001. What is the worst fear and how do you make it stop. And I thought, “Make fear afraid that it won’t have power anymore.” I had a visual of that melting witch chick in The Wizard of Oz.
Afraid of failure, afraid of being alone, afraid of the dark, afraid of not having love, afraid of cilantro, afraid, afraid, yippity whathaveyou.
The quote “Worry [fear] is using your imagination for something you DON’T want to happen” I’ve said to myself many times. I’d like to imagine better things. Fear is a teacher. Not an existence.
You could think of continual fear as “unsustainable emotion.” It deters growth. Recycle it as fuel for success. Eco-emotional.
“Fear is afraid of This, Don’t be afraid of This.”
This is part of The Invisible Plan.
