Fear is the opposite of love. Fear comes from the mind and love from the soul.
Fear leads to worry, anxiety, hate, anger and all other negative emotions that create turbulence within us and in the world.
Love on the other hand only leads to more love.
Currently across the world, the dominant theme by many is to teach us to fear other humans.
Psychological fear is the fear that is the worst, as we cannot deal with fear that isn’t real present moment danger.
Our mind and the collective mind, that some choose to plug into, creates psychological fear. It is caused by a projection into the future. A fantasy of what might happen. It’s mostly fear-based because of the uncertainty.
If we stay in the present moment there is nothing to fear and we can be free from all the negative emotions that fear causes.
Then we can focus on enjoying now and being free from suffering and causing suffering for others.
Love other humans don’t fear them.
The future is something that never actually happens, it doesn’t exist and is a fantasy acted out in our own individual heads. Each person’s mind conjuring a uniquely imagined and different future.
I wrote before, our lives are made up of a series of ‘now’ moments. Today, is the past tomorrow and tomorrow never happens. Now is life and it is the only life we have.
When we fantasise about the future and allow it to dominate our noisy minds then we will be consumed by fear, anxiety, worry, uncertainty and we will mainly be envisioning problems that haven’t occurred and all the mental and physical affects that will have on us.
Right now is the only thing that counts, it is our life and once we choose to live the life we have now we will only have to deal with the problems that are actually real and occurring right now. Not the fantasy that we imagine, as they never occur.
Amazingly if we only have to deal with problems as they appear, then we have not worried about and imagined a whole plethora of miserable outcomes and we haven’t judged. We simply use our intelligence to deal with the ‘now’ challenge as it occurs.
We let go of fear, worry and anxiety.
This is very liberating.
