World War Fear: It’s Time To Go AWOL

There’s a war going on. Have you noticed? It’s on every news channel, covered by every media outlet, everyday. It involves the whole of humanity, a true world war.

Though it’s proving powerful, sweeping and destructive, it has a secret. Something no one is talking about—that the entire thing will be won or lost on the battlefield of a single mind. Your mind.

Welcome to World War Fear. Every last one of us has been drafted, is currently enlisted and on the frontlines.

It’s been said, in countless ways, by the greatest minds ever known to us …

“I think therefore I am.” Or, in other words … “The mind is everything. What you think about you become.”

So what are we becoming then?

If we’re completely honest, most of our minds, most of the time, are deeply saturated in fear. We’re drowning ourselves in it, daily, willingly. We click on the worst headlines, share the most heinous ‘stories,’ and we tune in in droves for the most tragic events, leaving the incessant coverage on, for hours, using it as a backdrop to our lives. In essence, we propagate the thing we claim to hate. If what you think about you become, who have we become when we allow our minds to obsess on the most fearful realities and possibilities by forwarding, clicking, tuning in, posting and sharing specific and excessive content designed to scare-bait us into forwarding, clicking, tuning in, posting and sharing? At best, we’re acting on behalf of fear, we’re fear’s best friend, we’re its arms and legs and tentacles, we have a twisted affection for our supposed enemy. At worst, we’re actually strengthening the capital and currency of terror itself, fattening the bottom lines of media corporations as we permit them to operate with less than a shadow of a hint of the most basic journalistic integrity and we are forming and shaping our world, then like a distorted mirror, we’re somehow baffled by the image. It’s the same way that the grocery stores, filled with junk food, expose what we actually buy, what’s happening in the world and how it’s presented to us exposes the true contents of our minds: afflicted with an unconscious addiction to the ‘what if’s’ and ‘worst case scenarios’, and infected with a plague of fear.

The good news is that fear is just a thought!

And thoughts, even the terrifying ones, only exist if we allow them to. When you evict fear from your mind, it actually has to leave. It is your mind after all! That’s right, it actually doesn’t belong to the media despite what we might have led them to believe. And you’ll be amazed at the space it frees up when fear and future-casting worries are banished!

This truth is echoed in the old Cherokee legend of the Two Wolves. When a Grandfather says to his young grandson, “There is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One wolf is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, ego and fear. The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy and truth.” The boy thought about it and asked, “Grandfather, which wins?” The old man quietly replied, “Whichever one you feed.”

“Fear can win. And it will win, if it’s fed,” is something Eve learns all too well in Animus (see book link below). So feed the good wolf and starve the bad. Feed what you want to grow, starve what you want to die. Beginning with your thoughts only feed joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy and truth. And beginning with your thoughts starve out anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, ego and fear.

The world will change quicker than you could imagine, one thought at a time.

And it’s easy to master. Just begin to pay attention to your thoughts; if fearful ones pop up, discard them, no need to evaluate or judge yourself.

Step 1. Stop the thought.

Step 2. Allow it to dissolve away.

And last, keep a vigilant watch in your world, recognize fear in all its forms, never feed it; do not click, do not forward. Cut it off. Go out for a walk. Make love. Breathe air. Dance. Live life. And always remember, “There is nothing to fear but fear itself.”
