When we sit waiting for a train or a bus or a plane or anything, do we enjoy it like it is part of our lives or do we want the thing we’re waiting for to arrive as soon as possible?
There isn’t a right answer, just that if we always want something else to happen rather than be in this moment we will never be content.
Without fear, what would you dare to do?
When I mean fear, I do not mean fear caused by a current physical danger, we do not know when they will occur and, to be honest, when someone or something physically threatens us right now, we are either going to freeze, fight or take flight. It is not imaginary, it is real. We deal with a situation that occurs now, we do not have time to think, we simply accept and do something, or not.
Psychological fear is what sabotages us doing things constantly throughout our lives. It comes from the mind’s incessant obsession with projecting an imaginary future for us, driven by the self-image and all its insecurities, the need to protect the precious ego.
Being driven by our endless thoughts leads to an imagined fear, one that prohibits us from doing. As it is not a fear caused by physical danger and is only imagined, it is not real, and therefore, we can not cope with it or deal with, as it has not and will not, ever happen.
So without psychological fear, so that means without thinking of the future and thus living in our real lives, right now this moment, what would you do? What would you try?
Crazy, the insanity of creating imaginary fear to stop us living our lives now in the present moment to protect a mind created self-image known as our ego.
