Never Fear…

Fear is an interesting thing.  Fear can keep one from harm by initiating certain fight or flight responses or cause one to think twice before doing something that could cause bodily, or other, harm.  Many times, though, fear is used to control a person.

Our organized churches use it to keep one “in line” or from “going to hell.”  Politicians use it to garner support for things that one would not normally support.  Even bankers and Wall Street use it to drive markets and to scare one into accepting certain outcomes that really have no factual support.

Here is the bottom line; don’t let anyone put you in a position of fear.  Are there times to be afraid?  Of course!  But there are times when fear only causes us to make bad decisions.  We are in what seems to be scary times…but, we will pull through it.  Fear can cause suffering or mean enslavement to certain principles or ideas.  Remember the words of Ernest Holmes, “The Divine Plan is one of freedom; bondage is NOT “God-ordained.”

What can we do during these trying times?  Instead of fear, get together with your neighbors, friends and family and start a support network.  Pretty soon you may realize there is really nothing to fear at all…

“The key to change…is to let go of fear.”  Roseanne Cash

“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.”  Mark Twain

“The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.’  Buddha

“Courage is knowing what not to fear.”  Plato

“Fear of something is at the root of hate for others, and hate within will eventually destroy the hater.”  George Washington Carver

“Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.” Francis of Assisi

Instead of a fear-based society, lets try building a society on real love and mutual respect for our sisters and brothers…Just something to think about!
