Turning Fear into Real Power
“An [awakened] man has four natural enemies: fear, clarity, power, and old age. Fear, clarity and power can be overcome, but not old age. Its effect can be postponed, but it can never be overcome.” – Carlos Castaneda

In this new cycle of Path with Heart starting on September 3rd through November 26, we are addressing what Carlos Castaneda called two of the four natural enemies of man: Fear and Power.
Why did he describe fear and power as “natural enemies”? Aren’t we all looking to become more powerful?
Castaneda considered fear and power as obstacles to becoming an awaken being, a man of knowledge. He told us we would never become our real selves until we defeated fear. And defeating fear doesn’t mean not experiencing being afraid. Rather, it means to not let fear freeze our desires for growth, adventure and expansion. It means to fully experience it and cross through its length, moving towards our goals without giving up. Defeating fear also means to stop running away from our deep longings and from who we really are.
What about Power? It is lack of fear?
The absence of fear is not natural in our biology. The experience and usefulness of fear is embedded in the deep fabric of our body. Fear could mean that “I need more information” or “I need support.” Denying fear is easily tinged with arrogance, and a sense of superiority and separation. Culturally, we have bought into the idea that power is the accumulation of material success and wealth: the more I have, the more people I know, the more powerful I am. This concept creates a separation with others: I have more than you, thus, I am more powerful than you. This is the type of power that, according to Castaneda and the Seers of Ancient Mexico, blinds us. It actually weakens us, because it turns us egotistic and needy. This is the type of power that we need to overcome.
Real power comes from being afraid and still facing the fear and continuing to try. Power comes from failing at your business, your marriage and learning from it and doing something new and creative next. From loosing it all and finding yourself. It is being loyal to your inner call, to what for you is Truth, to your own Quest.
Overcoming Fear is to truly connect to a source of Real Power inside ourselves that doesn’t look for external approval, or for ‘fitting in”. Real Power best develops from a daily practice based on inner observation, reflection and daring, and from experiencing wholehearted compassion and kindness for ourselves and others from unfolding deeper understandings of ourselves as part of the whole.
How do we turn fear into real power?
By offering to our minds and bodies different perceptual options and experiences and healing, releasing and dissolving misidentifications about ourselves and others.
In this cycle we will:
- Practice a set of specific sequence of movements to lengthen the fascia (connective tissue) releasing psycho-somatic patterns of Fear
- Practice breathing sequences to expand our perceptual capacity creating new neurological patterns
- Practice recapitulation exercises, the self-directed questioning of beliefs and interpretations in order to free our perception and function in the world in new, fresh and creative ways, and contributing to a new world syntax where human consciousness is directed by evolutionary expansive forces.
Class participants also have the choice of joining small witnessing groups called Energy Groups, guided by Being Energy® Teachers, in which you can share in between classes, as well as participate in helping each other review materials from class each week.
