FEAR IS A CHOICE
I saw After Earth, and it wasn't as bad as many critics have said. Not a box office smash hit, but definitely entertaining, and good messages in it too! Check out the trailer here if you haven't seen the movie yet: FEAR IS NOT REAL Most people think that fear is something natural, that it's normal to have it. Maybe on the level of physical threats is it understandable, but very few of us face mortal danger everyday, and we experience fear--in relationships, in opportunities, in politics, in money, and so on and so on. Fear really is a state of being, something that comes on based upon what you've been conditioned to avoid. The threats to your physical body, can actually happen, but when Will Smith says 'Fear is a Choice' he means you can choose to face danger with courage, instead of collapsing into fear. Death comes to us all, and we can face it in fear or love. Excelsior, G.A.B.E.
