Chapter 4 of The Garden Within by Dr Anita Phillips has some hard-hitting quotes about fear! I should know, because I’ve been well-acquainted with it at points in my life…

You’ve probably heard the quote about fear being faith in the wrong direction… this chapter takes that concept a little further with the idea that fear and hope go hand-in-hand because hope is an expectation, even if it’s toward something negative. It’s really kinda gross when you put it like that, and may give you pause the next time you’re engaging with fearful thoughts!

I had to make a graphic for myself (see down below) to get a better picture of the different types of soil discussed in this chapter and how Dr Anita proposes they relate to our emotions.

Here is chapter 4, along with some of my random reflections.
