Letter to the Boys and the Little Warrior
Hey guys, it’s been a few months since I’ve sat down to write you a letter.
I’ve missed my time to write and I’ve moved it back up to the top of my list.
What I want to talk to you about today is FEAR.
More specifically, not your fears necessarily, but other people’s fear.
Ever since March, it has been a fascinating thing to witness as the powers that be have controlled the masses through fear.
Now, I am not saying to not be empathetic towards other people’s fear, but NEVER and I repeat, NEVER, allow the fear of the masses to stop you from doing what you feel in your heart is the right thing to do.
People love to project fear onto everyone around them because if there is a lone wolf that doesn’t fall in line with fear-based thought, then the said people must have a self-inquiry to how that could be so.
It’s kind of like when people act out when people close to them have success in life. They aren’t even aware of what is going on inside themself, only that they don’t like to see others that are close to them progressing.
I’ll tell you why that is….
It brings up their own insecurities and it doesn’t typically align with their beliefs about what is possible in life. When other people see someone else’s reality that doesn’t align with their blueprint of life, it causes angst and anxiety.
It’s easier for most to try and sabotage the success rather than self reflecting and going within to do the work so their outer world can change. (I’ve seen this quite a bit over the years when it comes to weight loss and spouses).
Now, back to fear. If there is one thing your father is, compared to most, it’s that I have a very high tolerance for fear. I have taken every opportunity, when presented, to deal with my fears head on.
I’ve built up calluses to fear because I know fear isn’t a real thing. It’s a projection of the mind, out into the future (the future isn’t real) about things that may go wrong.
So what is everyone afraid of other people’s fears for?
I’ll tell you why, it’s the fear of social judgment.
You see, you’ve heard me talk about Mind Map throughout the years and one HUGE advantage it’s provided me is that I know how the human brain operates. It’s a prediction and response machine and it thrives on patterns.
When you take away prediction and response, fear can rise.
The human brain is also very sensitive to judgment. Judgment is the biggest threat as perceived by our brain.
When you are judged, it used to mean that your odds of getting kicked out of the tribe or pack went up, therefore your chance for survival goes down.
Everything the human brain runs through its operating system is based upon survival.
Another example that is still front and center is as I write this is the issue of wearing a mask. I don’t hide my feelings on my thoughts on this and I don’t wear a mask. I know many others feel the same way because they tell me so in public (yes, for the 10 people that shoot you evil glances, another 20 are inspired and have a glimmer of hope in them) but they do it anyhow because they are told to do it.
Most people at this point are wearing a mask because they fear the social judgment they will get. And it spreads like a virus (fear is the real virus) to the next person and so on.
People allow other people’s fear of judgment to infuse their own being so they go along to get along.
Most people say they are doing it so as not to be selfish and to protect others, which is the biggest line of cop-out, bullsh** I’ve ever heard.
IN reality they should be saying that I am fearful of judgment, own it, and then go about changing it.
Anyhow kids, I don’t want to make this all about the mask, use it as an example.
Fear is the dream killer. It keeps hidden potential in mankind, locked away.
Listen to your gut, feel the fear, head into the fear and realize that it’s all an illusion.
An illusion that can be used as a great tool for your growth.
P.S-This was written stream of consciousness like all of my writings. I didn’t proofread it and never proofread any of my work. If you find a misspelling, I don’t care. If you made it this far and this where your attention is, then you’ve missed the entire point. Go back and read it again:)
