Human beings live in two worlds. An outer world which is real, discernible, contactable and true. And an inner world of concepts, beliefs, images, desires, attachments, identity and time. Our inner world is the world which builds our outer society. Actions come from thinking. Our thinking is a greatly non understood educated phenomenon.
We hold vague 'understandings' of this inner place, handed down from others. We have heard of a 'conscious mind' and a 'subconscious mind'. We have been all been educated into a commonly accepted view, that we, are thinkers of thoughts. And yet something, does not add up.
If we are thinkers of all thoughts, why do we think thoughts which fill our lives with fear? Thought, is movement within educated and conditioned human memory. The incessant movements of inner thinking, are an approach to life implanted into each of us during twelve years of mandatory 'education'. We were led into patterns of acceptable thought.
We were educated into what to think to be identifiable and conforming towards the pattern of the society we were born into. To think in the grooves of a well laid down specific traditional educated religious approach to life, our given understanding of the laws of our lives and our Universe. And what we were told to find our security in accepting, was enclosed in differing conceptual agreements, depending on the precise geographical location born into, in this corrupted world.
A child born in Israel, becomes an Israeli Jew. A child born in Palestine, a Palestinian Muslim. And the two shall never meet, and the two shall ever war. And this same story is being repeated the world over at every level of human existence. Has been, for thousands of years. Conceptual identification seeking security in continuity and growth, is destroying our world.
Fear is a natural outcome of living in such a beautifully divided society. There is no security when people find it impossible to live together, there is no security when security has been found in a divisive historical principle between us which has brought us to repeatedly kill each other. Security, surely, will only come into the lives of humanity, once that which prevents it, has ended. In educated allegiances to flags and 'religions' we have never taken the time to question or understand the value or danger of, aligning to our lives.
Our latest division, in our never ending search for the security we can never meet when we live dividedly, is the division between rich and poor today. This division, has of course, manifested fear into the hearts and minds of many an ordinary person, who only wishes to live the life they were born to live, in relative peace, undisturbed by the aggressive domination of others.
We mostly feel that fear arises in response to a frightening observation in our world. A perceived threat. This is partly true, however, the overwhelming injury a person living in fear meets in daily life, does not come from any perceived external threat. It comes from a persons own conditioned inner nature. Which, is how we have been educated to meet life.
It comes, from thinking.
Fear is an inherent component in the mind of a life lived conceptually. Of course, no one other than the insane, would choose to live a life of fear, like all of thought, which cannot be stopped, fear is automatic in nature. And yet, this automatic movement, is being self produced. An arising inevitable disturbance within the human psyche, A programmed and educated response to an apparent future of uncertainty.
How well can you function in life, when your mind is paralysed in a state of fear? You cannot. You are living psychologically crippled. And the crippling of the mind is being caused by the very same mind. Fear, is a product of thought. We are talking of psychological fears, physical fears are another matter. Fear, is sustainable in a human life, only in a mind which has no direct understanding of itself.
Fear darkens life, and brings a detachment from life. Fear destroys any ability I hold to relate to the lives of others, or to meet my life freely, in this present moment in direct relationship to it. People lose their lives to ineffective pharmaceutical drugs and end their own lives in total despair, unable to escape dark shadows of inner fears. A legacy of an insane, although accepted and educated psychological approach to life.
This video explores this issue, and the unexplored potential which exists in every man and woman's life, to bring all inner states of psychological disturbance to an end. A mind caught in fear knows no love, for fear and love cannot co-exist together. Fear and deep meaning in life, are impossible bedmates. A mind caught in fear has lost connection to life. It is imperative that we come to a deep first hand understanding of our inner lives by ourselves, and investigate the possibility in doing so, of fear, coming to a complete ending.
Minds living in fear, build a frightening world. Minds free from fear, may build a world free, from fear. They may, in truth, be the only thing, which can.
