The Threat Is Enough

Most of the things we fear will happen are entirely products of our minds and imagination. Symptoms of our accumulated patterning, programming and conditioning make for fertile soil within which our minds can quickly and repeatedly generate worry, fear and stress. Unfortunately, the world around us (that is, the unnatural, man-made world) has a bent toward reminding us perpetually about the threats that exist to our health and safety, our money and security, our planet, our rights and freedoms, and more.

The threat is enough. Given these conditions, the mere suggestion of terrible futures and outcomes there could be, for many, is enough to trigger latent energies, traumas and unexamined toxic beliefs that continually redirect, fragment and consume our time and energy on a daily basis.

Anger

I’m angry. I’m angry because I love you, and care about your future — rather, our collective future and our wellbeing — and I feel powerless to protect you from those strange, delusional few who are out there: those whose aim is to foment and to feed off your fears, your need for emotional expression and creative satiety, your need to be seen, to be held, and to belong…to control your every move, to make you believe you’re fragile and weak, and then to profit from your self-induced illnesses.

I’m angry because I don’t know if there’s anything I can do about it.

Reverse

All of the issues and concerns we have in a lifetime arise from a concatenation (linked events, ideas, concepts, experiences) of innumerable moments and happenings. Nothing occurs because of one detail, as every second of living encompasses billions of nuances we could never quantify.

Why, I Am Here!

Purpose can be an elusive notion. We go through life gleaning insights, aspirations and perspectives from influencers and our environment, but we’re also born with a compass and a map. We just don’t live in a world that actively engenders spiritual relationship with the self.

Evolution, Sort Of

Many have talked about how humanity is going through an apparent ascension, awakening, elevating of consciousness and other similar, speculative terms. I am certainly one of them, for which you’d find plenty of evidence in my past articles. But I believe now the idea requires some elemental grounding — and perhaps an alternative, matured perspective, given the events of recent history.
