So here we are today on this new Monday and a post title that screams fear. Well though Halloween is coming up it has nothing to do with ghost and ghouls but with the fear inside our souls and hearts. Might be provocative so be warned.
Fear, what does it mean, is it enough to condemn people to the outskirts of a town. Place them in labelled boxes so you know what to avoid. Who feeds that fear. Who taught you to fear these things, objects or even feelings, emotions and simple words. And let face it, it goes back centuries on times.
Fear the emotion that tells you to flee or fight for anything that seems a threat to you. And that is where we all go wrong. Sure there will be things to be afraid of. But when looking at the simple things, we are afraid of the silliest things. Fear also creates hatred.
So who teaches us what to fear and label it as something to avoid. Well it does start at home with parents and or siblings. A mum afraid of a mouse could teach a child to fear mousse as well. Same goes with spiders. It ends up being education to teach children what to fear. I mean in Texas I think it is wise to tell children that rattle snakes are not the pleasant kind of animal to come across and should be handled accordingly. Australia has some animals like that to including a small spider if my memory serves me right. These animal can kill.
Yes it is us who teaches the kids what to fear, and we have been taught by our parents and so on, and that goes back centuries. It is not always written in our DNA as with some animals to automatically fear a other animal.
This makes us come to, who feeds that fear. Well media, films, and of course people around us. That is only when we talking animals or nature.
Now what about fearing people. Yes we do. It is the reason why we fight and rage wars. Always about who is better. A better colour, religion or even sexuality. But who says that. Why are we so afraid of a different colour, or religion or even sexuality. It is not going to kill us like a bite of a spider. Or a claw of a bear. Why do people preach hat some of these things mentioned are to be feared.
Do they even know where it comes from, the hatred or fear of differences. Does the KKK know America was a country occupied by Indians, coloured people if you will. So why do they fear/hate the coloured and say America belongs to the white. They sure do not know their history very well if you ask me.
Church is such an institute as well. And sorry if it offends you I tried religions and came to a conclusion that some still spread fear and thus hate. For no reason at all. Catholics saying homosexuality is wrong, are condemning those people like they done in their bible with lepers. Why they fear these people they do no harm. Well Christ embraced them Why can’t a Catholic or Christian. And what is it with the Islam one book saying love all and another book kills the unbelievers. How contradicting.
So what do we fear, why do fear and create hate towards those fears. When e talking about people who mean no harm, or small animals who do not hurt you .What is so gross that it makes you want to flee away or kill it with a passion.
Do we truly fear or is just taught to us. There is a big difference between them. Because that what is taught has usually been taught for centuries and is based on a difference. As small as a colour or belief.
Rethink why you fear what you fear, And is it truly something to fear or even hate.
Open you arms and heart to people around us some things are not to be feared. Stop labelling and sorting on colour, sexuality or length of hair, or even religion. It only teaches to fear differences which does not matter.
No need to fear this fat grey haired ex-addict bastard I only bite if you ask me to. Now smile it makes us all equal.
