Raising consciousness


Fear -a powerful and primitive human emotion that is induced by a perceived threat or danger.

We eat, breathe, sleep and live in fear on a daily basis. We fear, losing our jobs, not making enough money, being left or cheated on by our spouses, not finding our soul mates, not being able to provide for our families, our children not growing up as per our expectations, being nabbed by the police, failing, disapproval from others, not measuring up, falling sick, dying, heck we even fear what is going to happen after we exit this planet… we fear going to hell.

Fear is a very powerful tool of control. It causes physiological changes and ultimately behavioral changes such as fleeing, hiding, or fighting.

Fear keeps us in check. We fear not being accepted as we are so we pretend to be who we are not. We fear ridicule so we agree with others lest we be isolated from the crowd. We fear failure or being humiliated so we never start that business or project that has always been in our minds.

We fear being alone so we get into relationships that often end up being toxic. We fear what society will say if we got divorced, so we continue staying in verbally, emotionally, and perhaps even physically abusive marriages.

We fear not being able to provide and so we show up daily in jobs that we despise. We even fear missing out, so we all run to watch the latest “game of thrones”, we engage in activities that drain our soul, energies, or pockets so that we can keep up with the rest of society….I could go on and on but you get my point.

🛑Fear makes us conform to the patterns of this world either un/consciously. ”No shepherd and one herd! Everybody wants the same, everybody is the same: whoever feels different goes voluntarily into a madhouse.”Like a hen in a caged field, free to roam but not truly free, fear keeps us in a mind- jail. Held down by invincible chains, we think we are free but in essence, we are not.

In a world of comparison and conformity, Are you free to be who you are? Do you have the courage to be yourself? Feel your emotions? Speak your mind? Do what you love? Honor your truth?

…… or are you afraid you will be escorting yourself to the madhouse?

🛑It is said the cemetery is a truly rich place. In there lies books that were never written, businesses that were never started, films that were never cast, paintings that were never drawn, love that never blossomed, leaders that never stood up to lead…………….

CONFORMITY is the JAILER of FREEDOM and the ENEMY of GROWTH. The only real prison is fear and the only real freedom is freedom from fear.
