    Moving Away From Fear

    Moving away from fear is what most of us do all of our lives. We want safety, security and all the answers. I believe this how Google rose to such high popularity. If you have a need, Google will help you find The Answer. Sometimes the blank page or canvas causes fear. It’s not life or death fear but it still causes an uneasy feeling.
