“Fear is what happens to us when we deny our love.”
Humanity is afflicted with an inexorable disease. It is a widespread epidemic that compromises our authenticity, ethics, integrity and sensibilities. One of which we as a global culture have been suffering from since the dawn of our existence. Its roots originate in our chaotic, obscure and unconscious lifestyle. This social virus is an emotional instability, a mental phobia and inevitably becomes a physical disease. All of us are infected. No matter how we attempt to avoid, distract or escape ourselves, it is always there. It thrives on our personal apathy, attachment, conflict, denial and dependence. We are prisoners of our own fear.
The decline of our society has accelerated. No matter what our belief, education, perception, politics or understanding, it is undeniable. Humanity is in a perpetual state of fear. Most of us are not aware of its full measure and impact. We have been socially conditioned into a custom of dis-ease, disillusionment, distrust and indifference. Cultural confusion influences all avenues of our daily experience. From our early exposure to authority, education and religion, to the contemporary exploitation of the media, our peers and society, we are constantly overwhelmed by a blitz of aggravated anxiety. Our fear is like water to the fish.
Reality, as presented and perceived, has been distorted and manipulated to the nth degree. Its dynamics have been strategically altered beyond common understanding. Those who pull the strings of the global puppet show make sure the design is complicated enough to prevent the majority from transforming it. It is the energy of our own fear that sustains the reality in which we are confined. We are not taught nor do we choose to learn ways to transcend this social prison. Therefore, we sequester ourselves within the boundaries of our personal fear. Reality is an artificial security that prohibits the fulfillment of our possibility.
Tapestry of Terror:
Terror sells, perhaps even more than fear or sex. It is a controversial terminology wielded by adolescent adults for the purposes of agenda, control and profit. The impact of its implication provokes anxiety, hate, ignorance and oppression. It is a contrived power that has altered history, law, perception and understanding. Those who define it are often the guiltiest of practicing it. It is a commercial, corporate, financial and political exercise to exploit the fear of nations for the manipulation of the global marketplace. The true purpose of contemporary terror is to bewilder, distress, enrage and terrify humanity.
“The easier it is to look away, the harder it is to live with ourselves.”
The Bliss of Oblivion:
We have made it our inalienable right to be consciously unconscious. Selective reality is our common misperception. We desensitize and acclimate ourselves to the horrors of inequality, injustice, prejudice and violence. Social chaos, deception, destruction and trepidation have chased us into our proverbial rabbit holes. We defend and hide ourselves from the mere threat of danger. We settle for mere survival in the shadow of life. Our motivation is socially distorted from fulfillment, purpose and service to amusement, escape and possession. We savor the bliss of our self-conditioned oblivion, tethered to the vicious cycle of a virtual reality.
We are all in a waking slumber. The monotony of society’s arduous routine has pulled reality over our eyes. Our sedation is sustained by the multiplicity of our amusement, distraction, entitlement, obligation and responsibility. We are culled into pedestrian roles as slaves to a complex matrix of indoctrinated education, elementary entertainment, divisive politics and idealistic religion. Our attachment, consumerism, fear and obedience enable a ravenous social system of competition, exploitation, manipulation and obsolescence. Everyday we voluntarily justify our part in defending and enabling an imaginary life at the cost of our freedom.
It happens to all of us in our own unique way. Our perception and experience shifts from our immersion in to our transcendence from social reality. We see the illusion for what it is and become acquainted with our personal vision. The quickening of our empowerment and enlightenment propels us into the embrace of the extraordinary. Linear perception transforms into multi-dimensional experience. We are thrust into expansive, new streams of consciousness. All we have encountered and understood in our past and present is superseded by the illumination and inspiration of all possibility and purpose. We are awakened.
Each of us has a personal power that extends beyond our experience, imagination, perception and understanding. Whether or not we are aware of this, it exists. Our body may be a biological marvel and our mind a neurological phenomenon. Yet, our heart is an electromagnetic force of multi-dimensionality symbiotic with our intuition and connected with our soul. It is in our creativity that our spirit is able to manifest through our heart, mind and body. Every person has the ability to be an expression of the universe. Our unique vision is a vital element in the fulfillment of our purpose and the collective destiny of humanity.
“Only when we live our vision will we become our soul purpose.”
Keeping the Vision:
No matter how powerful our experience of awakening may be, seeing and knowing it is only the beginning. Enlightenment is established with our commitment to exercise a conscious lifestyle whenever an opportunity is presented. The personal vision we receive is manifested with our creativity, devotion and intention. In order for us to truly become this we must live it everyday, especially in the midst of great adversity. Our vision is all that is real. Having a vision is the birth of our possibility. Living it transforms us and the reality in which we exist. This is the true expression of human being.
In the Field:
The fate of the future depends on us all. There is no escape from this essential, universal truth. The greater our resistance in claiming and embracing our personal destiny, the more grave the impact it will have on the fate of all living beings. We are not spectators in the arena of life. We are participants in an extraordinary experience that transcends our fear, perception and reality. The expression of our personal engagement is the embodiment of our soul purpose. Our commitment to the fulfillment of our life is our only true destiny. Our personal power is realized when we choose to envision, embrace and walk our path.
Rise and Shine:
The only moment in which we will ever make a difference is now. Each of us has a dream that can become vision, intention, expression and purpose. There is one true destiny for which we are all empowered into being. It simply requires us to break through the boundaries of the fear we have enabled with our own anger, apathy, denial, hate and indifference. The more we live an experience that inspires us; the more it becomes our lifestyle. Transforming reality is not moving mountains or altering the course of the future. It is our birthright as multi-dimensional beings. It is our nature. We must rise to the opportunity of our life and shine.
“The only life worth living is our own.”
