Why are people so afraid?

Why have we accepted “safety first” without question?

When we are deprived of the opportunity to explore our limitations, we become more fearful of them, more tightly bound to them, and less able to cope when, despite our strivings for control, reality presents us with a new challenge. 

Charles Eisenstein, Life in a Playpen

A secure person is willing to plunge into unfamiliar territory, to try new things, to expand beyond his present self; he is not afraid of the unknown, because he knows the world is fundamentally good.
