The way we function as a society is based on fear

Salma:
We honestly don’t realize how engrained fear is in our minds and how it affects almost every action (or non-action) we make.

Me:
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.

Salma:
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.

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.

    Maybe change & progress is not the way? Perhaps what is required is the acceptance of what we are – in all our gory and glory – including the fear? So long as we have ideas about what ‘should’ be we are blocking the real-izing of what already is. I no longer see ego as something to be rid of but to be integrated within the heart. Instead of concentrating on what the rest of the world is doing – or not doing – is it not enough to be what we are – a ripple in this great Cosmic movement? There is nothing to get rid of – but everything to accept 🙂
