The achievement of freedom from fear is a lifetime undertaking, one
that can never be wholly completed. When under heavy attack, acute
illness, or in other conditions of serious insecurity, we shall all react to
this emotion -- well or badly, as the case may be. Only the self-
deceived will claim perfect freedom from fear.
AS BILL SEES IT, p. 263
Fear has caused suffering when I could have had more faith. There
are times when fear suddenly tears me apart, just when I'm
experiencing feelings of joy, happiness and a lightness of heart.
Faith and a feeling of self-worth toward a Higher Power -- helps me
endure tragedy and ecstasy. When I choose to give all of my fears
over to my Higher Power, I will be free.
