~ Our Lives in Fear ~

Is the mind the same as the body? What is consciousness? Can machines have it?

~ Our Lives in Fear ~

Post by Bill Wiltrack » Thu Sep 10, 2015 10:40 pm

Each one of us are surrounded in fear. Encased in fear. Defined in fear.

You are who you are because of the limitation of your internal fear.


The emotion of fear is at THE DEEPEST CORE of your being.


Fear defines EVERYTHING in you and ALL of your outer manifestations.


ALL of your reactions to outer stimulus are rooted in fear.



You; the you who you consider yourself to be, is NOTHING MORE than a momentary expression of fear in an infinity of emptiness.

You certainly are reductionist in your thinking

I reached a point, at one time in my life, where I was able to experience this seemingly unfortunate truth.


Fear guides us. Period.

Yes, but how to be rid of anxiety on better than a sporadic basis?

It's one thing to know there's nothing to fear, it's another for all your conditioned stuff to dissipate. Reprogramming takes more than awareness, it takes real time practice over an extended period and the progress is not always smooth.

Well at least you don't seem to be afraid of making a fool of yourself.

I am strong because I am weak.

I am beautiful because I know my flaws.

I am a lover because I am a fighter.

I am fearless because I have been afraid.

I am wise because I have been foolish.

& I can laugh because I've known sadness.
