From the desk of Rabbi Brian.

Fears.

Box on whiteIt seemed seasonally appropriate for me to write about fear…

A few simple truths about fear:

  • All fear is rooted in the perceived future loss of something we either have or hope to have.
  • Most of our fears do not come to pass.
  • Fear of something specific is easier for us to deal with than free-floating anxiety.
  • No matter what you do, you’ll never eradicate all your fears.

A few postulates about fear based on the above:

  • Perhaps we would feel less fearful if we were less attached to objects and outcomes. (Duh.)
  • Maybe
    we hold on to fears that don’t come to pass because they are simply
    more comfortable to deal with than the anxiety that comes with being
    alive.
  • Becoming comfortable with your fears might just be the best plan.

E-mail me your thoughts…

With love,


Rabbi Brian

Why 77%?
Two reasons:
1) 40/52 = 0.76923. The newsletter is sent every Monday except the last of each month.
2) In school 77% was a passing grade and ROTB wants to remind you that life isn’t graded, it’s pass/fail.
