It is obvious that large, dangerous fears must be overcome, or we will succumb. But what of the many small fears? They are like spiders--small, but ubiquitous. Many seem inconsequential, a mere nuisance, but their sheer numbers can overwhelm us, spreading their gossamer nets over our entire existence. When seen, we can try to work in spite of them but how much better to sweep them away, replacing them with thoughts that feed us instead of drain us. Otherwise, our lives will be caught in their nets--tangled, wrapped and eventually poisoned by the fears we have allowed to enthrall us.
