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.

Divine hopelessness

You come to a point when whatever you undertake is fruitless. No matter the passion, good will or effort you put into that particular action, you see no real outcome. Indeed, very frustrating. Time after another, you feel defeated by some kind of relentless fate. The more you try, the less you achieve.

What do you do…? To act is hopeless, inaction is no answer either. In plain language,
to do or not to do, doesn´t change a thing…You´re powerless. Stuck. You can´t solve the problem.
You just don´t find the right solution. The utter futility of human endeavour.

In this powerlessness, something happens. You are ready to surrender. To accept whatever it is, the way it is. You realize your limit. Surrender to what is, is unspeakable sorrow, as you no longer can flee your sorrow.
You can try to flee, but whatever you do, whoever you meet – your sorrow will be mirrored back to you…

Deliberately facing this hopeless loneliness is the hardest blow to Ego. You meet Fear,
you meet your Separation. Projection is no longer a choice.
In fact, nothing is a choice. Surrendering to this horrific helplessness is the key.

You give up, you let go, you let life. You trust…You are now free to let Soul whisper…There isn´t anything to do, but LISTEN…

Just listen.
