I did a post on my blog about fear, seems relevant to this thread so copy/paste time (well part of it at least).
..this movement that is taking place right now, often called the truth movement. I like this for its simplicity. It’s the only way really, the truth
is like some abstract law of things. The Boudica’s (victory bringer) war cry was ‘Y gwir erbyn y byd’, the truth against the world, a power of
Becoming a part of this truth movement can be challenging, tough. You find yourself literally studying the darkness of the times and times past,
becoming a witness of the pain and misery of the world, taking it’s pulse as it were. There can be a danger here, like most if not all things, it
can be a double edged sword. It’s known that exposure to violence and mayhem, slaughter and pain in tv, movies and games can de-sensitise the mind.
I used to think that i may be risking de-sensitivity in what i see, hear and read on a daily basis, as a part of the truth movement, but you know,
this will not happen. We are not suffering blind unasked for exposure, we are confronting the darkness with a purpose, we are growing as a species and
we are becoming stronger, more compassionate, we want peace, we are asking what freedom is, what is love? Fumbling about? Maybe, but fumble in a dark
room long enough and you find the door or the light switch.
The world we are in right now, the world that seems to be changing to something better is a world based on fear. Fear in and of itself is a healthy,
instinctive part of who we are, fear has played a part in getting us this far, the fearless baby would probably end up in the sabretoothed cats belly,
the adult would be equipped with an early warning system that gets them the hell outta there. The problem is that we have become slaves to fear, to
the point that even slight changes in the environment can flick the fear switch and we run, but now we run from ourselves. But this is changing, by
confronting and searching for the truth, we expose ourselves to what should and does instill fear, but we press on, we continue and we dont back
A wise man called Dorje Dradul says about fear being the gateway to fearlessness, that by confronting fear we are opening ourselves to the tenderness
and vulnerability that underlies fear. He says “Nervousness is cranking up, vibrating all the time. When we slow down, when we relax with our fear,
we find sadness, which is calm and gentle. Sadness hits you in your heart and your body produces a tear….that is the first tip of
This gave me heart when i read it, because after years of looking in the shadows, i still find myself shedding tears at some of the things i see. But
i’m not alone, there is a wave coming, with each rising dawn it gathers strength, at dusk it does not shrink. There are still challenging times
ahead, but ultimately we will prevail, retreat is not an option.
