We honestly don’t realize how engrained fear is in our minds and how it affects almost every action (or non-action) we make.
Fear, being so ingrained, usually makes one totally lose perspective, as if nothing else existed. Most people today are hopelessly caught in the nightmare of their making. Their vision is thus totally biased and warped…Evidently, when the observer is fearful the action can´t possibly be anything but unloving.
And that is why we can’t truly change. We can’t truly make progress from the same fear-based mind that exists in man at this time. We are fooling ourselves. Furthermore, for true peace to occur in this world, it has to come from within.
That is, from that non-verbal awareness of the observing without any thought-based opinion of what is.
My approach in my work is to understand and address my obstacles; the shifts then happen by themselves, organically, as an outgrowth of the non-self-judgmentally inquiry:
All the work you do here is based on understanding what you do and how you interfere with the natural process. If you try to do anything other than understand the situation, your effort will be a blockage, a resistance, an interference. You cannot make yourself grow; you can only cease to interfere. You cannot make yourself happy; you can only stop your judgments. Growth and expansion are natural; they are the life force itself. And you cannot predict its direction.
