Your right. Every man does have his own thought on what it is but as earlier speaking from an evolutionary view point it would have to be the same. And since they have their own definition what do they fear?


Well for this thread to work we have to realise that you have different kinds of fear...

You have you basic "hardwired" phobia's like acrophobia etc. Animals have these fears aswell. But the other kind of fear comes from the fact that we are conscious beings able to ask ourselfs the questions like why, what and where....

It automatically gives you two different, yet equally valid, answers to you question. I would say the biggest and most prominent fear in all beings conscious or not is the fear of predators, so that would be a plausible answer to your question.

Peace


With the last one I said do something Great. As in big that people will remember you for. I did not say do something good.

Having fun with this thread, eh, Conclusion?


S&F for a good question and for the generation of a decent thread.


So man's greatest fear? Easy: EPIC FAIL!



Ok, so I do have an understanding of man's deepest fear, deeper than death, than castration, than divorce, than losing money, etc, etc.


Wanna know what it is? It is this: the fear of separation.


You see, each spark of the Divine that exists in each human -- or any 3-D sentient being -- has a deep, indestructible knowingness that the inner spark, the very essence of the "I AM" that drives the consciousness of every 3-D sentient being (I'll use the term "human" for convenience, but this deep fear is applicable to ANY 3-D sentient being, human or not.) KNOWS that the spark of the "I AM" is a part of the One Infinite Creator, which is the Source from which we all emerged.


So when we emerged from the Unity that is our Source, we are cast out into the worlds of maya, of illusion, of duality, where, suddenly feeling separated from the Source, the little, indestructible spark of the Divine suddenly feels alone for the first time ever, hence begins the "Original Wound" that is the pain of separation of little spark of the Divine inside the sentient being from it's Source, the One Infinite Creator.


So the sentient being then experiences pains and disappointments in life, re-enacting the original pain of the separation from one's Source and it is not until one comes to realize that one is NEVER separated from the Source, that one is ALWAYS connected to the Source, then the intensity of that Original Wound pain subsides to the point which it is no longer a pain.


I find it significant that, at the climatic moment of Christ's crucifixion, that Christ yelled out "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me!? He was re-enacting the Original Wound in that very moment.


Hence, when a human no longer feels the pain of the Original Wound, then there is no "deepest fear" that the human would experience. Small fears would be felt, of course, but not the biggest, deepest fear.


So, when humans who had not yet come to understand their own Original Wound pain, their deepest fear then manifests in all sorts of fears, but they all have their source in the Original Wound.


David Wilcock has some great things to say about this:

divinecosmos.com...

Scroll down to just before the mid-point with the headline in bold below, if you want to cut to the chase, or read to that point.


THE ORIGINAL WOUND

Everyone's issue is the same -- the Original Wound, as my readings call it. Put simply, the Original Wound is the core of all other pains we feel in life, and it comes back to this sense that "God Abandoned Me."

*snip*

The minute someone pushes a button and tells this part of you that it is ugly, stupid or unworthy, the Original Wound -- "God Abandoned Me" -- gets triggered.

Rage, spite, venom, hate, jealousy, bitterness, loneliness, depression, sorrow -- all these 'negative emotions' then result from this illusory aspect of yourself trying to defend its existence. It is literally fighting for its life.

Why? Because your shadow self MUST die in order for you to truly awaken.

*snip*

THE END OF THE SHADOW IS SEEN AS "THE END OF THE WORLD"

The death of your Shadow Self is a symbolic, not a literal death.

Nonetheless, it often comes in the form of losing those things the shadow identifies itself with -- such as money, relationships, prestige, health, good looks, youth, et cetera.

If you feel yourself becoming less paranoid, less obsessed, less stressed-out, less anxious, less fearful, less vain, less jealous, less angry, less judgmental, then that shadow self is indeed falling away.

It may screech and holler on the way down, but the cleaner and purer your thoughts become, the less and less it will bother you.

Along the way down, as you go through this remarkable "personality cleanse" we are all being led through as we head into 2012, your Shadow will convince you that "The World As We Know It" is falling into certain doom and catastrophe.

You will read articles about martial law, mega-Earth Changes, economic collapse and the disaster of the week, and believe they are true. You may even write your own.

Yet there aren't great masses of people killing themselves for their religion now is there? It's statistically a small amount of people. And might I add just because someone claims they know and have themselves convinced they know does not mean they know.

So the fear of the unknown. That is where I classify that because there are religions that claim to know. So that would be covered. Every thought in your head about that moment. Is it true that it will be the way each individual see's the after death scenario. I am inclined to believe that after death is the same for all. At least if you argue it from a evolutionary stand point it would have to be the same for all.


Sew the fear of the unkown.
That is where I classify that.
Because there are religions that claim!

To know:
Sew that "would be".
Covered every thought.
In your head.

At that moment:
It is true.
That it will be.
The way!

Each individual sees:
The after death scenario.
I AM,
Inclined too.
Believe that!
After death IS.

The same for ALL!

At least if you argue IT:
From a evolutionary stand.
Point it.
Wood halve.
To BE.

The same for ALL!

Yes there are many different fears. But what is the greatest, and more importantly what is the fuel for that fear.

So now you are admitting that its a small amount of people dieing for what they believe in. With that statement one can reasonably assume that you think for the most part religion is peaceful? Right or wrong?

I think so too. Better cover that one again though. See what I did there?

I understand what you are saying. I believe only the source, if that is what you call it, is the only one who knows when the end is near, because he is the end. Signs will be shown that is for sure. But as to who's will will it end.

Pardon the expression if you would please but. What does that have to do with the price of tea in China? We were talking about fear of the unknown.

No doubt we did and you're the one who said it.

And I can tell that you like conclusions.

There is no end to the path of the spark of the Divine within each of us; there is only change of form, of location, of orientation, of perception and so on. So, in a way, the old (the 3-D illusion) is ended and the new (4-D) will have begun.


And who is willing it? The One Infinite Creator. It is the will of the One Infinite Creator -- and Gaia herself -- that Earth is to shift upwards from 3-D into 4-D at 2012. It will happen.

Yes. True. Off subject. Most people in the world do not fear the Unknown is what I am trying to say. More people in the world believe they know. Right or wrong about their belief they do not fear the unknown the most, because at least they think they know.

Conclusion -- didn't you read the Original Wound part? Did you read the David Wilcock article on that topic? I dare you to name a fear of man that is greater than the Original Wound. I don't think that there is one.


I don't understand why you keep asking this question when I have answered it. Perhaps you don't want an answer and are attached to the game of the chase of asking the question?

The fear to succeed is the underlying reason man has not reached his pinnacle. Only 1% of the world are seen by the world as successful. Only because they have 99% of the wealth. With that has stemmed a fear that only 1% will ever succeed. So since people have a fear that they can not do it, they will never face their fear to succeed.

I am not saying that wealth has to be the incentive. It could be anything.

Also I am not saying that you are wrong. I just disagree, that's all.
