It's nice to see your thoughts out here Crazee.Crazee wrote:Accepted scientific theory says that fear is our natural instinct for survival that has been evolutionarily acquired in order to avoid danger.
I say this is true, but it is intended to be refined.
The problem with fear is that the simultaneously implies being aware of danger while also panicking about it. The trick is to control the danger response so that it does not involve a panicked decision. Panic is what causes us to lose our wits and self-control in situations that would've otherwise been remedied. Awareness of danger and/or consequences without panicking let's our thoughts flow freely towards the solutions we so badly want.
When we are afraid of danger in a panicky way we won't confront it and solve it. One sees clear examples all Social and environmental problems are peaking worldwide and haven't yet been effectively solved because when we realize how deep of a ditch we've really dug—we panic.
But it is changing, the ability to pass around and lock onto information from around the globe in an increasingly easy and reliable way is giving individuals and populations more holistic views on the world, and their power in it as a creative being. Creativity can, and will, solve any problem if focused with a strong enough will and intention.
Like Hitchiker's Guide says: "Don't panic!"
How we react to any given stimuli is ultimately what matters; one may notice that the more "intense" a situation is, the more carefully you can "detact" from the scene as you observe the current now unfolding. Prevent yourself from giving in to the animal parts of your psyche, and remaining in an detatcted observer state, will then place you into a unique position to step in and interfere if you feel such action is truly required. Almost like you can "step between the raindrops" or to that effect.
Otherwise you can watch the drama unfold, with the understanding that things are working the way they naturally blossom into existence.
That guy, with the chips up his nose, looks straight out of the art documentaries I've been watching. (Thank you BBC!)
The shock of the surreal places us into the now, just like I described above.
Laughter does the same thing! (You're welcome Carol! )
And thank you Floyd, for pointing that out to folks. (It took me a long time to get it! )
When we laugh, we are directly opening, right then and there, a channel into the infinite power of
