Title: an illusion
Post by: tides2dust on Jun 08, 2010 10:39 pm
last night i was forced to accept something i'd been going through as a weakness- i am grateful for the recognition and am working on taking the next step- which isn't always easy, even if it sounds so

much of my reality has been based off fear
whether it be through conditioning or something on a subconscious level

its hard to speak of this because i do not understand
maybe weakness is not the right word... rather- i've accepted it as something that does not serve me well

i think much of society goes through similar- whether they be aware of it or not... living life to satisfy ones desires- caught up between what is created out of love- or created out of fear

or misunderstanding between two peoples- cultures- etc

war- why do we have war? what do we fight over?
where does the fear come from- is it instinctual self preservation- worry that "I" am in danger of whatever the situation?

there are many things accepted as norm in the world around me that leave me struggling internally- forced to face certain aspects of self- sometimes this is helpful as i am able to mold or redefine beliefs- other times i feel it is unnecessary and leaves me confused

eh

i bet most people have wondered this...eh ?   so far, the conclusion i have come to......they are still very much asleep.  what do they fight over ?  illusions.

i understand eric.   keep ur chin up...try not to let them steer u into confusion.

manymanymanymany moons ago.....what you mention above,,,,is big part of why i put myself 'into the box'.  i tried to hide from it...hiding does no good, not really.  we have to face it...Learn...and keep Progressing on Path. 

they may try and trip us while walking on our Path and we may stumble...but dont let them lead us astray from Path.  if stumble happens...jump up,,,,dust yourself off and Keep on Keepin' on   ;) :D

((( Hugs )))

i think that even these notions of 2012 and terrorist attacks are a way of increasing our fears. Often it helps to place ourselves in environments that increase our faith rather than our fears. It is possible to do this. That is a function of soul searching forum.
