On fear

“If I think too much ahead, I become terribly frightened”, ” mörkrädd” she said.
In this case “ahead “means future, right?

In Swedish, “mörkrädd” means literally being afraid of darkness. So, we transpose our inner darkness on the “future”, for what lies “ahead” of us. But this “ahead” exists in our imagination only…The future is completely neutral, it has nothing to do with our fear.

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.
