In this talk, Michael explores the inherent limitations that fear puts on each of us. At the beginning of the talk he asks how we might live if we knew we couldn’t fail. How might this alter our approach to life? Without the constant threat of failure, he argues, we would be able to approach life without fear. Living fearlessly, he continues, means that we are orienting our lives from love. Living in this way allows for us to embody the sacred teachings of many traditions.
