Why are people choosing to live in fear?

Too manypeople are living in fear...

Fear of the unknown...

Fear of invisible forces...

It is a primitive emotion. There were times when we needed fear to kick in... and sometimes still do. Unfortunately though, with a roof over our head and food in our stomachs, we are spending too much time allowing our imaginations to fill the void.

We don't fear being eaten by a wild animal everytime we leave the house... so we watch the news to scare ourselves insane and give us anxiety.

We fill the void with artificial fear. We worry about what might happen, rather than what is actually happening. The plane we are going to fly on might fall out of the sky... The car we are travelling in might crash...

Sometimes we are so desperate for an adrenaline rush we might go on a roller-coaster, or parachute from a plane. We sometimes like scaring ourselves, because it fills the void.

Why can't we just be...

Why can't we just be at peace...

Why do we need to replace our old primitiive survival fear ...with new imaginary fears?

Thetruth is -we don't need to live in fear.

Hi Robin, I love what you had said. I have been working on eliminating all fear from my life. Fear to me is a man made negative human emotion.

Hi Kross. Thanks for your comment. I wonder if that type of fear (the one that lingers and causes damage) is perhaps learned in childhood, and is then carried into adulthood without us questioning its real purpose? Fortunately you recognise it, so that's half the battle won. Fear of the unknown is so interesting because logically canwe fear something ifwe don't know what it is? Logically, it doesn't make sense. The unknown can just as easily turn out to be good, as bad? Why don't we anticipate the unknown with joy? Look forward to the mystery? And get excited about the unknown? Who or what conditions us to fear it?
