No Pain & No Fear for Self

My Inner Safe Space


Pain & Fear Are for the Body or Ego

Ego will help you to recognize, remove, and replace your ego: a.k.a. self-esteem.


NO FEAR OR PAIN

  • No human made my self.
  • No human can remake my self.
  • No human can make me anything.
  • No human can change me into anything.

Therefore, there is no reason to fear anyone as there is no psychological pain that anyone can cause me.

ONLY IF–I choose to own, eat, hook, button, trigger, swallow, believe, personalize, buy into, blow up, invest in, suck in, take to heart, or identify myself as something–can I wind up feeling like that something. Even then, I am only that thing in my imagination as it is a lie.
