This makes sense to me.
But is it really possible to transcend all your fears without first conquering a few?
It seems logical that conquering some of your fears is a stepping stone in the process of transcending fear altogether - not two distinct and unrelated approaches as Steve implies in his polarization articles.
I forgot about this part
The reason the two approaches are distinctly separate is because transcending fear requires an entirely different understanding of reality, while conquering a fear does not. You can have a fear and confront it time and time again - maybe you won't have that particular fear anymore. However, if you want to have no fears and no fear at all, ever, you must change your understanding of reality, for example, by adapting the subjective reality model and deliberately changing your mind so that you perceive reality in that way.
