Fear hates intelligence

Most of humans want “sure cards”- they all strive for security in every respect, but behind the pursuit of personal happiness and success, invariably lurks Fear. Chasing success and security is nothing but fear – now.

Fear and intelligence are each other’s opposites.

Broadly speaking, Fear hates intelligence. Feeling always threatened, fear is never comfortable, avoiding the nearness of intelligent people. So it is quite obvious, the fearful attract other “successful” fearful.

Communication implies honesty. To get to know someone involves also a risk. But a fearful person hates taking any kind of risk, and wanting always to play it safe, this person cannot be honest, as honesty would be interpreted as weakness and failure.

Now, what does all this mean in plain language? Well, it means that you can hardly make friends with people who are afraid.

I have to confess that I find it very hard sometimes to live in this society governed by fear and absence. It is at times lonely like hell – how can you be friends with someone running away from truth, avoiding whatever is natural, chasing “success”, that is, someone chasing nothing but lies…That´s how modern man “lives” life : avoiding his humanity.

I would like to communicate, to share ideas, to inspire and be inspired. But how can you share life when it is fear for life?

The truth is that there are very few persons who show a readiness to explore themselves, taking the trouble to find out who they are.

PEOPLE WHO NO LONGER FLEE, BUT WHO WANT TO LIVE NOW, WHO DARE TAKE THE RISK OF LEAVING THE KNOWN FOR THE UNKNOWN.

These are very rare, and there are the ones you can be friends with.

I needed to utter these words now, as I felt some weird loneliness tonight, realizing how few real people there are amongst humans…

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.

  1. Simon says:

    Or in other words:“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made cltopeme among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:16-19
