Responding to questions about fear in a psychotic world

This based on an email response regarding fear about speaking up/out:

We can fear many things. We do not need to be especially ‘awake’ to fear. Being ‘awake’ (or psychotically believing) regarding ‘the elites’ or the Chinese or ‘some aliens’ starting on mass depopulation and knowing that depopulation will involve many innocent causalities (like ‘The Boy In Striped Pyjamas’) is likely to induce extreme fear. At some point we have to overcome that fear as I did.

My fear of sharing information has come back again. Now, I have to overcome it again.

Sharing information does not seem pointless – yet does seem like a drop in the ocean……………………………

……………….now think on those words as pictures……………..

Surely, nothing could be more pointless than ‘a drop in the ocean’! This is where the words (memes) we choose can defeat us unless we rethink. What I do and say, does not have to be described as a drop in the ocean. There may be something like a river of misinformation to be tackled but my ‘truths’ are not made of the same stuff. Perhaps, the picture I need is of a stick that can be part of bridging that river. Any number of sticks may be washed away but if enough people use enough sticks wisely then a bridge is possible.

Using the best sticks in the best way and working with the best bridge builders may be most satisfying.
