May 17th - Fear...
I am sure I have written of fear, especially given the events over the last few years. We can live life with the dark shadow of fear, or fully in the light keeping it from appearing.
Sadly, what was once a sign of caution, fear has become a weapon. By creating fear within someone or the environment, it seems possible to own them or the situation. In the presence of worry, concern, anxiety, panic, dread and so on – whoever, wherever there is a sense of knowing, answers, direction – feels comforting for many. It is easier to simply jump on the wagon, than to look under the cover for what is hiding.
Often, I suggest it is a lack of understanding, knowledge, courage, confidence, common sense, curiosity, questioning… perhaps avoidance of standing alone, amongst the few, the need for belonging. Fear only has the power our mind gives it, whether a spider we are much larger then, an interpretation we are losing/at loss, a government overreach – to be afraid, is to lack the state of mind that allows for faith, critical thought, taking action.
Hmmm, the cover-up…day 287!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
