For the past eighteen months, I’ve been working on a film about fear.
It’s called Facing Fear.
I’ve travelled to various countries around the world interviewing scientists, physicians, psychiatrists and psychologists, spiritualists and psychics, combat veterans and victims of violence and abuse, and others who had faced real fear, and survived.
I interviewed some prominent names including Dr Joe Dispenza, Dr Bruce Lipton, Foster Gamble, James Van Praagh, Paul Selig, and many more. Some of the most powerful interviews though were with people you’ve never heard of.
All up I amassed 30 interviews and some 50hrs of footage. And I hadn’t finished. But then the coronavirus came along and it stopped me from doing any more interviews, and it put a pause on my completing the film.
About three weeks ago, when the coronavirus crisis really began to hit worldwide, I woke up from a deep sleep with a message: I have to be in service.
I thought about that and wondered what I could do to be in service. And then I thought about all these amazing interviews I’d done on fear that I had stored on hard drives. And how fear was running rampant throughout the world. And how the world needed a resource to help understand fear, and how to deal with it.
So what I decided to do was this: I’d create a website that contained most of these interviews – I’d cut each one down to about 20-25 minutes in duration – but I’d augment them where possible with a 25 minute Zoom interview with each of the interviewees discussing fear in the time of COVID-19. All up the website would contain nearly 20hrs of interviews on fear- with about half of it discussing how to handle fear right now.
I’ll have to monetise it – because the whole endeavour is costing me a fair bit to produce – but I’ll keep the price low to make it accessible.
So that’s what I’m doing. It’ll be called Facing Fear – The Interviews. It should be ready mid to late May. It will only be available for a short time, because the movie will follow later.
I’ve learned so much about fear during the making of this film.
Now is the time to get it out there…
Talk about turning lemons into lemonade, Bill! Look forward to contributing to this project!
Lots of love!!
Cool Laurie – thank you! I’m finding it a fascinating exercise, going through all these interviews on fear. Learning so much!
The thing I believe most about fear, is that most things we fear never happen. It is irrational, it is illogical, but it is very real. I think it fits hand in hand with it’s twin, worry. I am fortunate, as the Corona Virus has only minimally altered my lifestyle or livelihood. Perhaps, if that were not the case, I would be more into worry and fear. I have great sympathy, bordering on empathy, for those whose lives have been turned upside down. Mine has been in the past, but life went on, and I had to rejoin. I hope and pray that the long term damage is limited to all, but I think that is a bit optimistic. There will be real loss, or life, of livilihood, of routine, of loved ones, of places to live, and more and more, but once it is all over, each one will have to learn to deal with the facts of the matter, and not the fear of the matter. My prayers go out to all.
Steve – I replied to this after it was posted but it obviously got swallowed by WordPress. But just to thank you for your wise words. The interviews discuss fear in the ways you talk about in your post here. Your kind and compassionate words are greatly appreciated by me, and followers of this blog, I’m sure. Take care and stay safe mate, Bill
