Fear of the Unknown and what to do about it. The unpredictable, the raw newness is often scary.
Fear of the Unknown has been used to control human behaviour for millions of years. By now we should have made friends with the unknown and the unexpected. We need to find new ways of looking and the unknown. Not interpreting it – but actually seeing for what it is. With a clear mind. Not with a past experience that continues to dominate our thinking. When you look at the unknown through the eyes of love you cannot have Fear of the Unknown.
Fresh and new ways of living often last just a few minutes days or weeks and then humans revert to old habits and old fears. Because they did not involve love into the new way of being. The mind chatter. The opinion that comes from a conditioned mind prevented the new way of being accepted and enjoyed. Seeing what is, is the greatest skill of all.
Seeing the unpredictable through the eyes of the heart dissolves the Fear of the Unknown.
As we begin to open the eyes of our heart so we can see clearly. We need more than our physical eyes, ears and brain to see through the eyes of the heart. The inner person, the spirit, see beyond the narrow focus of physical senses. Yet the inner being needs to operate through the five senses. This means that the two must find a way of being together as one. When inner being and human body become one we see what the eye cannot see. We feel what the body cannot feel.
The Conscious awakening to your inner being is gateway to divine relationship with the world around us.
Fear of the Unknown is attachment to dark side of life. When you see through the eyes of the heart you fall in love with new ways of living. When you react with Fear of the Unknown you remain in love with the darker aspects of living. Because all there is only love. Connect to Choiceless Awareness. Choiceless awareness is path of inquiry. To follow the links all the way to the end. This means that not one thought is dominating your vision. When you dominate a vision with a thought, your mind remains closed. Then vision is limited to just physical vision that is divided from your heart.
We have the metoo movement where people share their pain. That in itself is not enough. The only value of that is to have that as a foundation that changes human behavior. Or it just becomes a pity party. Pity parties have a way of deceiving you. We develop ways of relating so we can create a culture that does not repeat the past. We need to learn how to bring your mind and your heart into unity if we are to be fruitful in any are of life.
