This fear-mongering thing has gotten out of hand. Seriously, it has. We’re supposed to be afraid of the economy collapsing. Afraid for our jobs, afraid for our homes, afraid for our families. We’re supposed to be afraid of our so-called enemies, afraid of the rapture. Oh, there’s more. We’re supposed to be afraid of not being with someone, afraid of not having friends, afraid of not fitting in…AFRAID!
My response: “Fuck you!” Seriously…it is! I’m tired of people telling me what to feel, how to act, and that this shit is normal. It isn’t! Fear-mongering is a form of control. And, I’m tired of people using it to control the masses. It’s to the point where it’s abusive, not to mention more contagious than the common cold. The number one genre film in the U.S. for the past five years are HORROR films. WTF?! We’re so addicted to fear, that we’re supporting it with money we probably don’t have? It’s amazing that any society, any country for that matter was founded. People are wearing and promoting fear like it’s okay. IT’S NOT OKAY!
True leaders do not have fear at their core. And, anyone who calls themself one, but, is truly fearful at their core, can be counted on to FAIL and FAIL MISERABLY. You see, the truth of every matter will always come out, it will undermind our best efforts for a cover-up, or, am I the only one paying attention?! Let me be clear about how I feel about fear… I think it’s a weak stance no matter who is taking it! Seriously stopping at fear is bullshit! Accepting life as it is, simply because you don’t want to upset your fear, by pursuing life as it can be, is uacceptable! I DON’T FEEL SORRY FOR YOU!
Does my stance make me mean? No. It doesn’t. I’m simply stating that I’m tired of the whinning! I’m tired of people throwing themselves under the feet of others and allowing their lives to be taken from them. I’m tired of people thinking core happiness isn’t possible simply because it requires EFFORT! I’m tired of people settling for scraps when there’s an abundant world waiting to feed them! And, I’m supposed to feel sorry for you? NO. I won’t. I am the hope and the dream of the slave, as well as distant echo of the trail of tears. So, no…I’m not accepting fear. I will turn fear into motivation to ACT! Rather than curling up and dying slowly thinking that no one cares. Here’s the thing–I don’t need anyone to care, as long as I CARE! But, that is what it all boils down to, doesn’t it? Caring enough about myself to not give into the fear-mongering! Pushing myself out of the comforts of laziness, stupidity, fear, insecurity, etc… to a place where I will say, “If they won’t. I WILL!”
Death??? I’m sorry which kind? Let’s be clear, physical death means that your chances of “getting it right” on this plane are over! Spiritual death, a little at a time on a daily basis, while existing as a walking corpse—that’s torture! Not even on my darkest day or my lowest point. When I was a teenager, I thought about sucide once, perhaps twice. But, when I really thought about it, I learned something about myself; the winning was in LIVING. Not living to show someone something, or prove someone wrong. No. The person I needed to satisfy, to impress, to answer to was ME!
So, I will not vote for a campaign of fear, not the overt, or the covert. I’m not listening to anyone– well-meaning or not, telling me I should “worry” about something. I’m not going to worry about a crumbling economy that was 1. Never meant for me to participate in. 2. Was not my inception! I am not going to listen to propoganda, and assume that someone will look out for me, when my gut is saying “MOVE NOW!” What’s wrong with people? Since when was it okay for someone else to control your freewill??? And, then you wonder why you can’t sleep? Can’t relax? Can’t find happiness? It’s simple, you put your energies into maintaining your fears, when you should be kicking your own ass into acting! If for nothing else but, for peace–not in the world, but, in the world within.
Love Peace Happiness N One,
For those who are just as tired as I am.
LITANY AGAINST FEAR
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
