We born and we are immediately condemned to a life imprisonment, without having any possibility to appeal, we live our lives as prisoners, victims of our own minds; we let the conqueror of our mind to rule our life.
So we forget who we really are and we start being what the conqueror wants us to be, but what we don’t really know is that actually it doesn’t really exist, it is an invention of our own minds, so we condemn ourselves to a life of suffering and sadness.
And what is that invention that doesn’t exist rather than in our minds? That invention is called FEAR and we create it with our own thoughts, letting it be the driver of our life, the creator of our reality and our destiny.
Everything we think and do is related to fear, what is ironic is that what human beings look most in this life is to be happy, but what we only do is to act based in our fears, and that is why we only find unhappiness, because we run away from anything that can give us happiness.
“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.” – Joseph Campbell
So the only way to find happiness is to learn to face the fears, and then push them away from our way, because unhappiness is the result of fears, so while you have it, you will not be able to find happiness, and your dreams will be only dreams for the rest of your life, because you have chosen fear for your life, and dreams can never become a reality if you let fears to control your life.
Fear is lethal, because being alive and walking doesn’t mean that you are not dead inside, because fears consumes your spirit, as you are the results of your fears, and your reality is based on them.
“The only fear we have to fear is fear itself.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt
Fears are only the sum of wrong belief about everything. Our belief based in our past experiences and the experiences of others have made us to have a wrong idea of what life is really about. Every thought and action that leads us to unhappiness is based on fears, living then in an imaginary reality. We can’t see what is really happening, because fears make us blind, it controls our mind and our life, and makes us be miserable.
“Fear has two meanings: Forget everything and run or face everything and rise. The choice is yours.” – Zig Ziglar
The truth about everything is that fears don’t exist, they are the product of our own mind, fear is only an illusion that we create as a way to protect ourselves from any kind of suffering, which in fact is what creates all the suffering and pain we face every day.
We need to change our belief about life and about ourselves, belief created by society, imposed in our minds and accepted by us which creates all the fears in our life.
We are afraid to die, but we are more afraid to live, we have the concept that life is suffering, so we try to avoid it by not facing what we are afraid of, but in fact we are making those fears a reality. In the end what we don’t want is to suffer, but in fact allowing those fears to become a reality by controlling ourselves, makes us to be unhappy, to suffer and be sad, living in an unreal prison of unhappiness created by us.
“Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.” – Dorothy Thompson
Once you choose to live without depending on the results of any decision by giving more energy to what you really want rather than giving it all to your fears, and once you face it, knowing that are only an illusion of your mind, you will find true happiness.
So fear nothing, don’t listen to them, fears say nothing more than lies, don’t be afraid of losing something, because being afraid and pushing away everything you want will only make you lose the most wonderful thing we have: The life and the possibility to enjoy it, being truly happy and making any dream a reality.
Face your fears, follow your heart, and set yourself free!
