Fear

quote-682

At a person’s ’normal’ level the Mind is a mere REACTION TO FEAR, even in its striving for pleasure. The mind, at that level, is an ’I want, I don’t want’ mechanism. There is no sustained ’overall picture’, no relevance between one issue and another. At most, a SINGLE issue can be focused on at one time.
VERY LIMITED ACTIVITY/PERSPECTIVE, indeed. The MIND AS A REACTION TO PAIN AND FEAR. Nothing more can be expected without applied KNOWLEDGE.

Our crime has been our fear; our fear that in its sometime subtle trickery has fed our narrow self pity, and 'helped' us justify evil and self-enclosing, ignorant, defensive, aggressive moves and posturing. Our evil is not only in our overt actions but in our non-actions and our so called neutrality. Beware of your self-comforting justifications. There is no escape from the Law, none.

There is an essential difference between fear (as thought) and actual immediate danger. Danger is now - and we react with whatever astuteness and presence of mind at our immediate disposal. Fear, on the other hand, is a perception of possible danger in the future and thus in TIME. We are generally 'worried sick' about the future and thus constantly occupied with thought in time.

Basically, freedom is ‘freedom from fear’! Freedom means you can do what you want, right? So what stops you from doing what you want? Why doesn’t everyone do what they want? They’re afraid, no? You don’t do what you want because you’re afraid of what the consequences might be!
Freedom is not license! License is: you do whatever you want. Here we assume a serious individual.
If freedom is freedom from fear, then you have to be absolutely and totally neutral as to results. Because, if you’re not, and you want ‘this’ instead of ‘that’ - then you’re in fear. You want ‘this’ but maybe you’ll get ‘that’! So, neutral - as far as the results are concerned.

So, this fear thing! Each fear has so many angles to it that you can’t even start thinking about it. You can’t. Each of the fears is somehow connected with everything else. And when you KNOW that you can’t deal with it in the usual way, then it all comes together as ONE BIG MOUNTAIN. Then, you can DROP the word ’fear’. It was: ”I’m afraid of this, or I’m afraid of that”. When you arrive at this big mountain you can’t think like that any more. It turns into a TOTAL LUMP OF ANXIETY.
Our only problem with anxiety is that we fight it, and pay no attention to the sheer ENERGY that it is - that is BEGGING TO BE TRANSFORMED.

Fear can always be 'justified', but none the less its VIBRATIONAL TONE and atmosphere remain a COSMIC LIMITATION, from whence NO GOOD CAN COME. It is a Negative starting point where 'intelligence' cannot but function at the level of IGNORANCE.

People are WELL CONDITIONED and kept in place by a mass of supporting 'logic' of all kinds.
Shall we take a look at the 'coupling phenomena'? The Boy/Girl thing? No accident that the Family is considered the 'corner stone of society'. Society, that is rushing head long into total disaster and is already SICK from top to bottom, PRIZES THE FAMILY. Now, YOU JUST LOOK AT THAT.
Members of the family within society, SQUEEZE THE EMOTIONAL BLOOD OUT OF EACH OTHER. They give NO comfort, EVEN IN SICKNESS. They block anything new as a threat to the status-quo.
The fear of BEING ALONE is overwhelming/intolerable. 'Better the Devil you know than the Devil you don't know' is LIVED BY, even without hearing the expression. FEAR is the undercurrent of it all, and there is no energy left even to consider questioning it.

Acquiring and holding are the dominant motivations and manifestations at people's 'normal' level of functioning. The inevitable result of a fear based mentality.

It is true we’re all living in a lot of fear. It’s fear of the unknown! That has already just about reached its limits! If you don’t make a conscious effort to attain a degree of ’separation’, from all that’s going on, inside and out, then you can only keep spinning in the habit of fear!
