Wish you Happy, Happy ..., Happy This, Happy That.
Seasons greetings, are more common this time of the year. Yet in spite of the brave faces and the plastic smiles, hardly anyone feels particularly cheerful or happy.
Instead of Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, the tone is definitely Merry Crisis and a Happy New Fear.
Fear is driving a wedge between us. We have grown distant from one another over the past year and even more from ourselves, because of genuine but more so due to imaginary fears.
In fact, 99% of the things and events we are fearful of never actually occur. Then why are we so fearful?
Fear of any kind is considered the most effective method to control and exploit a people.
If we look carefully at the origins of the fear, we will discover that the proponents of fearful belief are the very same people who stand to benefit from providing us solutions to our fears. The media of course is almost always complicit in the spread of these fears.
An unawakened mind finds it difficult to differentiate between rumour and fact. Most of us possess conscious but unawakened minds. That is the ability to see and sense but lack the ability to differentiate between fact and fiction. This is why we live in fear.
We do not need magic or therapy to awaken our minds, just to be one's own best friend and be honest with oneself. To take time to self examine our situation.
To speak with oneself for the answers to our own problems can best be found within our own being. Once the answer is found, the path to negotiate through the various conundrums in life come forth almost by themselves.
I send you greetings and wishes, hoping that you become and remain your own best friend. The easiest way to awakening the self.
