Among the many beneficial instincts we were born with, one of the most beneficial is the one we shy away from most, fear…
It is a very useful instinct and one which is required if we want to stay… safe, on the right path and… thinking properly. It is fear of a “bad” decision which helps us to make the right one. It is fear of losing something valuable which keeps us striving for success. It is fear of being considered as worthless that keeps us battling to better ourselves. And it is fear of the unknown that keeps us desiring to understand…
Most of our life is lived in fear. We fear to lose our parents, we fear to lose our family, we fear when we think of the bills, we fear when we consider we won’t have enough to cost our daily expenses, we fear we are getting old, we fear our children are forgetting us… we fear one day we will die.
Nonetheless, it is fear which keeps us striving in life, and that is good, if we can understand that the main purpose of this instinct is to guide us towards life.
Regardless of how much pretentiousness we may display in front of others, it is the fear of death that permeates our fore thoughts. It is the single truth we all endure, for we know that death is unavoidable. At least the death of this body.
Our greatest fear comes from the unknown, that which we cannot understand, cannot see, or hear, or feel. Like riding a roller coaster for the first time, our imagination gets the best of us and because we don’t have a complete understanding of what will happen, our fear in plain to see.
As we leave the relative safety of our home, seeking to fulfill our duties, earning our daily sustenance, going to school, being a mother or father, keeping our appointments, it is fear of the unknown that keeps us alert, vigilante. Those who behave differently we call… reckless.
When we leave the relative safety of our home, seeking to fulfill our duties, earning our daily sustenance, going to school, being a mother or father, keeping our appointments, it is fear of the unknown that keeps us alert, vigilante. Those who behave differently we call… reckless.
There are different fears, some of them are beneficial, some of them are not.
The kind of fear which is not, is distressful because it causes confusion and anxiety. This kind of fear is a product of our “bad” decisions, this kind of fear brings into our lives a destructive fear. It is the kind of fear that brings “bad” thoughts into our mind, destructive thoughts, harmful thoughts, for it is the mind that is being assailed, because it has been contaminated.
Fear is the instinct which warns us that there may be danger, something is not right. “Be careful” it warns. Most may not understand this, but that is what fear is… it is a warning. When the mind is assaulted by fear, we should heed the warning.
When confusion and anxiety bring fear into the mind, it is important to listen, because to ignore this warning is dangerous. It will not be alleviated, it will not go away, it will only get worse.
This kind of destructive fear comes from the things we did in the past, things like wanting to know our future, consulting a “medium”, all forms of witchcraft, divination, some video games, books, talking to the dead, drugs, some movies.
Because of these things we did, or do, the mind becomes an open door to “bad” thoughts. It is these “bad” thoughts which cause anxiety, confusion and destructive thoughts.
Things like; depression, schizophrenia, by-polar, thoughts of suicide, etc. are all a cause of these “bad” decisions we made.
The Psychiatrist will listen, prescribe a drug and take your money for that is all he can do. Maladies of the mind are beyond all human beings, because the human mind is our consciousness and our consciousness belongs to…God.
