As I browse ATS more and more, each passing day my base of knowledge growing; I find myself assaulted by one underlying theme.
Fear: it is, unfortunately a part of human nature; to be wary and cautious increases the chances for survival when in unknown territory. That is, when
it’s under control. As I browse ATS more and more, I find myself feeling the undercurrents of what is happening all around us like many of you also
do. Fear, as suggested in the Star Wars movies, correctly I might add, is a doorway to other harmful (in abundance) emotions. Fear of something
whether it is irrational fear or not, gives you a reason to hate it. Hating something that may be a threat to you is not an unreasonable thought
process. You may feel anger; anger at the sheer fact that something so vile may exist, anger that it is allowed to exist and threaten others.
"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." It is a simple notion, fear and the consequences of fear lead to real troubles. We all know there
are real problems in the world, we can all see and feel the shadows laying in wait around the corner. We cannot however, understand their nature until
that future, is the past. In reality there is no reason to fear anything; that which we do not understand, we must study. If we understand where from
and why those things threaten us come, they can be combated properly.
They will come, it matters not when; but why, how and from where. One must rise above the fear of futures unknown; this may be easier for you if you
believe things to be fated. For those of us who believe there are choices in the matter, that things can be stopped before they occur you must
understand that you can’t stop something if you don’t know its origins. How can one be sure, in this world of realities and unrealities,
misdirection and half truths that one does not chase shadows, decoys? The very things they want you chasing, drawing you out into the open.
We must focus our minds; sift for the truth. Our “fears” cannot be confirmed by a story or a blurry image. When it happens, when that which
threatens us is no longer hiding, that is the time to move. All one can do by destroying a decoy, is put oneself into the open to be destroyed
themselves. Do not fear your enemies or their psychological tactics, for they will have already defeated you. Accept that they are your enemies and be
prepared to defend when they strike, but do not live in fear of the when. Whoever you are whatever you believe, fear gives power to that which is
And that is after all, until they happen, all they are.
