Fear – the foundation of our very human identity

Fear is incredibly adamant. Inflexible and obstinate. If fear equates separation, ego does anything to stubbornly protect its fallacy. Its wrong view. Its being special entails being addictive to suffering, anxiety and sorrow. Fear is conflict-based. So wrong view cannot exist without adversity. Without tribulation and misfortune. It shape-shifts from lamentable victim to reckless perpetrator.

It coexists with punishment, and unless it finds an outer target to rebuke, it punishes itself. Through disease. Psychic or bodily ailment…Fear is accordingly not something to easily dismiss, as it is usually the very foundation of human endeavour…

Fear is what keeps all systems afloat, be it political, religious or sponsoring any other form of ideation and ideology. Fear is actually responsible for all this madness we take for life and living. Even what most humans call Love, is, of course, a modified form of fear. All in all, it vehemently refuses to look into its twisted nature. Whatever it undertakes, is therefore, another expression of evading itself…

Everything I say here has taken me years to figure out through relentless observation of others, and above all, of myself.

Great truth in this

The other side of anxiety is desire.
They exist in relationship to each other, not independently.

Can we heal from depression?

She said:
“I am tired of feeling shit. I am tired of living in anxiety, fear, depression, sadness, a mess in my head.

I want to be happy. I want to live my life to the full! I only have one chance at this and I’m pushing 30 and I don’t want to be miserable on a daily basis.”

My answer:
I recognize your experience in mine.

I do not want in any way to indulge in vapid speculation.

Let´s just say that the very basis of depression is cleavage. A rupture in our soul.
An inner constant conflict which perpetuates itself through more conflict.

You are depressed, anxious, sad – it is a fact. On the other hand,
YOU WANT TO BE HAPPY. You want, of course, to live “your” life to the full.
You don´t want to be miserable on a daily basis.

And yet that´s what you are JUST NOW. Sad. Fearful.

Please, try to follow!

You see, if you try to be happy, that is, to be something that YOU ARE NOT JUST NOW, you do nothing but creating and enhancing even more your inward conflict.
Don´t you have enough conflict as it is…?

Can you see that by wanting “to become” something you for the time being are not,
you punish yourself…?
Again, how can we ever become something that we are not just now?
This is pure fiction, and yet, this is the societal fiction we have been conditioned by.

So stop punishing yourself, stop creating even more pain for yourself!
ACCEPT YOUR PRESENT PREDICAMENT. DON´T TRY TO CHANGE!
CHANGE COMES NATURALLY once you have learned to stay with What Is in
affectionate presence. You need to caress your wounds instead of flagellating yourself.

You need your own compassion and loving interest!

So be it!

What fear doesn´t want you to know

I invite you to confront, see through and drop fear.

Fear is impotent, it creates nothing, it kills all joy. It´s best and foremost “expression” is to punish. To shrink, punish and destroy.

Fear is chaos, as its intrinsic nature is disorder.

Breaking free from fear is the greatest Success : the success of being alive.

When you drop fear, life can express herself freely and abundantly. As I said before,
you live – you create value, you create reality. REALITY comes to those who are alive and feel worthy, those who understand the greatest secret of life: FEELING.

Having dropped fear, you will find and fulfill your Meaning, your Joy. And joy is your birthright that fear never wanted you to know about…
