We’re living in times filled with fear. I’ve gone through a few of my own recently. Certainly, the collective consciousness is a fear-based one: all the things that could go wrong or kill us... this is most of what we hear about.
We will die. We will get sick and we will die eventually. Maybe the thing we are afraid of will get us. Maybe something else will. Getting sick down here this year I really felt how the fear surrounding the sickness was worse than the actual sickness.
I’m looking at you fear.
I’m also thinking about Vedic astrology a lot and wondering how much of it all is written? And my question then is if we have a fear is it because we know on some gut level that that thing will happen? Or is it that we call our fears? Or that the thing happened to our grandmother or great grandmother, grandfather and the fear of it is written into our DNA somewhere? Or maybe that thing happened to us in a past life?
We’ve lived so many times, I believe. We’ve had so many experiences. Some of the fears are probably healthy, life-saving fears to have. But some others, they might not do anything helpful, only keeping us up at night afraid, anxious.
I’m spending this time getting to know some lingering fears of mine. I don’t have any new solutions except to see them, talk to them, draw them pictures, give them to god, goddess, the earth. Ask her to take them, transform them. Ask her to hold us close in the uncertainty of life.
If we can find peace in the mind then we’ve found peace.
When we release our fears how light will we be? How free will we be?
I remember being fearless. I’ve felt her. I hope to feel her again. She’s so good.
May we lay down our fears.
May we embrace the unknown, each other, this life...
May we be released from our parents' fears. May we be released from our grandparents and great grandparents fears.
May our children be free from our fears.
May we all be happy and free.
May we all be happy.
