Fear Rules the World

Even a brief look at our media, television, newsfeeds and games brings us to the realization that most of our communication is fear based.  We are bombarded with fear of the future in our politics (what will happen if they are in control?), our personal lives (what will happen if I am not successful?) and our community lives (what will happen if they move into the neighborhood?).  It constantly asks the question, “What if I lose what I have, or what if I am not able to get what I want?”  Behind that feeling of fear/dread those questions usually lurk.

But what if we just observed those feelings in a non-judgemental way rather than becoming those feelings (eg “I am afraid.”)?  Try it, a noticeable peace may present itself to you.
