Fearless: Why The Enemy Is Fear and Not Hate!

 

Mahatma Gandhi said not long ago: “The enemy is fear. We think it is hate; but it is fear.”

If you think about it for a second, we can all agree that we are the cause of our fears.

Only we can decide (consciously or unconsciously) whether to be afraid or not. Nothing in the world can make us feel afraid.

 

There are several books that explain how homo sapiens developed this emotional state.

The concept is this: fear helped us to survive during the hundreds of thousands of years where we had to be careful of wild animals’ attacks, where there were toxic foods in the wild without supermarket labels with a list of allergens, where going out into the sea with a raft could be deadly.

This state of mind, which was of fundamental importance to homo sapiens before the industrial era, we are still carrying in our DNA.

But for human beings of the modern era living like this is like living with the handbrake pulled.

Fear today is more damaging than avalanches, floods, viruses, wars and terrorism.

The fear of losing your partner, the fear of getting fired at work, the fear of not making it to the end of the month, the fear of not being appreciated, the fear of getting sick, the fear that your child will not be able to succeed in school.

Fears make a person a slave to the system that constantly tries to make him an automaton on command. They make a modern person a slave to comfort and safety.

 

The news, the most popular programs, they are all designed to spread fear.

They create the need for a person to stay still in his comfort zone ready to get up every morning at 7.00 am and go to work in companies that produce the same services and products of which he himself has become dependent.

If you meet a depressed person, you can be sure that you have found a person with strong fears.

I am not saying that you should avoid fear, it would be crazy and impossible (fear is installed in our DNA).

Martin Luther King said: “Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. There was no one there”.

Should we send the courage to open the door or should we go? It is our choice, nobody has the power to bring fear into our house.

With love.
