#116 Terry Hershey: Fear, Anxiety and Ego

July 9, 2019 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes  

In our show today we are privileged to have our regular insightful guest Terry Hershey: prolific author, renowned public speaker, landscape architect, an mentor to several people on the Art of Slowing Down to take in the pleasure of life.

Today’s topic affects every single listener and is perhaps the systemic root of most of our personal limitations. I want to talk about our daily experience of FEAR, and how it impacts the choices we make.

In addition to bringing on severe anxiety, fear is also the source of low self-esteem, anger, resistance to new ideas, reluctance to experiment, and a general acceptance of the status quo.

I am coming to believe that Fear is one of the most influential psychological determinates of how we feel and behave.

So let’s get into it with Terry Hershey.

A SACRAMENT is when something holy happens. It is transparent time, time you can see through to something deep inside time. Frederick Buechner


I believe in special moments in which we are transported from this world to the next. These are the flashes of time in which we get to experience what I (and others) call “the holy.” And most of the time these moments come as a surprise because they are most usually ordinary and quite common. I refer to these moments as sacraments.
