When 'surprise attacked' by apparently overwhelming horror
or threat it is normal for most of us to revert to the amygdala
'fight or flight' mechanism.This mechanism, as I understand it,
is a kind of 'intuitive library' genetically coded through the
ages of mankind.
The raised hairs on the back of the neck, the heightened
'awareness', the increased adrenalin-fuelled metabolism
all conspire to tell us that 'fear' has entered our
self-preservation instinct programme and become
It comes as a welcome guest ,complete, hopefully, with an
overnight bag. It offers a degree of security and sense of
pre-warned stability. It is not an army, but has control of one.
However, when fear enters our domain carrying a load of
luggage/suitcases then we have reason to fear fear itself.
For fear likes luxury. It likes to impress us with the trappings
of it's power.We can soon be enchanted by such power, especailly
if our own egos crave such power ourselves. It enjoys travelling
with an absolute mass of suitcases and a large entourage of staff.
In this scenario fear brings with it hatred, prejudice, intolerance..
main staff members. Why, it even brings it's own gardener complete
with a gruesome chain saw with which it 'prunes' the roots of our logic,
our morality, our sense of justice and freedom....until the spiritual
tree of 'the self' trembles precariously in a wind of terror-inspired
Notice the cleverness of the tactic. Don't attack the trunk of the tree
(well, unless you're a beaver who is especially equipped for that, huh?)
for that is hard to do unobserved. Rather seek the roots that hold
the mighty form aloft. Little by little the roots break away and when
they are all but totally gone...then we are hostage, completely, to fear as
our form trembles in the storms that threaten our very existence.
This is, essentially, the process of indoctrination. In terms of 'religious
or political conversion' it is very adequately documented......increase the
threat of annihilation, increase the awareness of mortality and pain, increase
the definitions of 'sin/guilt'...disorientate the subject by deprivation techniques
(whether physical, psychological or both) until an abreactive point
is reached (a point of fear inspired nervous collapse)...and then, bingo!
The subject rejects those 'root standards' that have been the cause
of all this 'terror'...and accepts a new codus that promises relief, peace
and heavenly tranquility based upon adherence to the new codus. Better
to fly in the clouds of illusion than tremble in the reality...huh?
Now, you, the individual have ceased to be that..an individual. You have
become a 'groupie', a 'convert', a 'follower', etc.etc. You conform
to a doctrine of 'safety in numbers'.
All out of the opposite to Love...fear! Worst of all, you have sacrificed
self respect in the process and, accordingly, afford no others respect.
It is not a rule, nor a codus, nor a pre-condition to 'being in the lovingness
of the Oneness' that you, YOU, cease to be what you have been created to
be...........an UNconditionally loved individualised aspect of the 'Oneness'.
In the final analysis this is where fear loses the battle, the war. For fear
has nothing in it's armoury with which it can fight the supremacy of
When unwelcome guests overstay their 'welcome'.....you have a
wonderful opportunity to embrace them 'in the lovingness'. By being
fully your true spiritual self you make a friend of an enemy, an enemy
that first visited posing as a friend. By showing love in the face of hatred,
Love in the face of prejudice, Love in the face of intolerance... we
absorb those energies and transmute them.
For we all invite into our 'spirit' that which is necessary for us to
experience the fullest possible experiencing of who we truly are.
Rooted in the 'Oneness' we blossom with lovingness.
