Fear. It’s fucking everywhere. It’s been embedded into our lives ever since day one. The media, the corporations, the rich and the powerful, those in charge. They all want us to fear something. In the quest for their own wealth and success, they deliberately and shamelessly attempt to imprison us in chains, to limit our capacities and put barriers between us and reality, us and our dreams, our ideals…
This fear is often presented to us in the form of “these guys are evil” or “this is bad for you, if you do that you’re in trouble” or in the form of a fairy tale specifically designed to distract you from the bigger picture.
They tap into our subconscious every single day, and most of us never even notice it. What’s the point of having free speech if everyone’s been influenced into a specific pattern of thinking, particularly one which almost always is driven by the agenda of those in charge of “the system”.
False Expectations Appearing Real
We’ve got to question things, be curious. It’s 2015 – we have no excuse for not being able to do so. The number of resources we have nowadays thanks to the continuous development of technology is insane. Let’s make use of everything that’s been put out there for us in our pursuit of the truth. Let’s break those chains that have taken our ability to think for ourselves captive. It’s about time we know right from wrong, and ensure those in power are doing what is in the best interest of society as a whole rather than for their own personal agendas.
Another form of fear comes from within ourselves. There may be external factors involved, but ultimately, fear is something we feel internally, and thus it can only thrive for as long as we allow it to. The majority of our fears are not life threatening or life defining. We have to remember this.
Whatever it is causing the fear is something that comes and goes, and it will pass, and those moments will be a blip on the radar in the tale that is your life. So don’t give these irrational fears the power to imprison you. Don’t let them suck the joy out of your life and stop you from doing things that you might actually enjoy or learn from!
I’ve certainly allowed fear to take hold of me in the past, and I still face the situations you may be going through as well, but remember – you are not the only one in the world who feels this way, you’re more than capable of facing whatever comes your way, and whatever it is you’re fearing, when you face that fear, it’s never as bad as you imagine it to be.
It’s time to set ourselves free.
