From Fear to Love – The Beginnings of an AwakeningSpirituality Monday, September 3rd, 2012
There is a life waiting for all of us. A new life. A life not dictated by our fears and anxieties, but instead a life created by our love for life and all of its creations.
The only thing that is stopping us from creating harmony is fear. Fear is a global cultural norm. It is systemic throughout humanity. For example, we fear that if we cannot pay our bills that we will be cast onto the streets. We also fear nature and so we fortify our environments and destroy mass ecosystems in the name of profit. It is scientific fact that we are in the midst of the greatest mass extinction in 65 million years [Source]. We are over consuming the earths resources to keep “business as usual” and to “pay our bills.” So “normal” is this fear that we do not care to question its dominance over our lives and how it dictates economic and social activity.
And what about our social fears? Sometimes we are so afraid to speak what we feel to our friends, our partners, and our families, that we suppress what we feel in order to keep the status quo. We often keep ourselves quiet when there is such a vast array of emotional intelligence within us that should be shared. We fear we will hurt or loose the relationships which we cherish so we stay silent. We are afraid to be alone, but what we fail to see is that isolation and aloneness are only creations of the mind. Our disconnection from life, from nature, and from spirit, is directly tied to the dominant cultural paradigm of fear based actions [or inaction].
