The relationship we have with fear

"Human beings are afraid of very simple things: we fear suffering, we fear mortality."

Finding a way to accept and process fear is a task that can be mastered, but we have to be willing to acknowledge and explore our fears. When we confront what we are afraid to do, we find great opportunities to develop and grow.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

In 2010, Marina Abramovic performed The Artist is Present, where she sat for eight hours a day for three months. In this special exhibit, Abramovic is sitting in one of the galleries. You wait in line to sit across her. Some people sit for a moment, others for long stretches.

“What is art? I feel that if we see art as something isolated, something holy and separate from everything, that means it’s not life. Art must be a part of life. Art has to belong to everybody.”

“All at once it occurred to me—why paint? Why should I limit myself to two dimensions when I could make out from anything at all: fire, water, the human body? Anything! There was something like a click in my mind—I realized that being an artist meant having immense freedom.”

Making ideas and selling them require different skills that one person is not always capable of.
