Fear Prevails in My Blogging Community...

I recently mentioned something about "fear" on my blog here... and how it keeps us from exploring our true potential and knowing the "REAL" us in all our glory and full form!

Apparently, I'm not the only one to have realized how we let our "fears" hold us back from doing big things. Read what Vatsap has to say about his experience regarding it... (http://www.vatsap.com/?p=1282)

I just so totally agree with him... it's almost as if he has taken the words out of my own mouth and put them on his blog!

Recently, I have also been wondering about how people let go of their dreams... or even refuse to acknowledge their existence... or pretend those dreams don't matter much anyways... just b'coz they are not ready to let go of their fears.

It's true - each one of us really does live his/her life in perpetual fear. There is not a single one of us who doesn't live in fear! And fear of what? Failure? But we weren't so fearful when we were babies! Had it been the case, we'd have never learnt to walk!

Then what really does happen between the time we were babies -- totally fearless about anything in the world, and believing that we truly were THE BEST -- and the time when we are all grown up and supposedly "mature"? Why do we stop believing ourself? Why do we stop believing our dreams? Why do we stop believing that we can convert our dreams into a reality?

Over a period of years, we just tend to lose ourselves - the REAL us. We become as artificial and superficial as the world around us. Life was meant to be simple and straightforward, but we make it so complicated. We create this unnecessary aura of mystery around us... and ambiguity.

We treat life like it was a game of chess where we have to plan each move to win. But life wasn't meant to be like this. There wasn't supposed to be anyone winning or anyone losing! We were all meant to be winners! Life was supposed to be like a restaurant, where we place the order and it was served to us - no questions asked!

Then where did this "fear" enter the picture... that we won't be served what we ask for unless we try to manipulate things? Why can't we be clear about what we want to order in life, and then relax in peace that it will be delivered to us?

And yes... on an ending note...

"There are millions of men, and women on this planet. Then why is my image so important to me? Or anyone else?"

Why indeed?

Interesting post kads. I believe that 'fear' is much like conditioning of our minds. It is like this - when we get used to a particular situation/surroundings we get into what we call a comfort zone. And if we are pushed outside our comfort zone we tend to get afraid or fear creeps into us. To be really successful in life we must repeatedly push ourselves out of our comfort zones.
Saints and realized souls are basically wanderlust. They do not settle in one place or get into comfort zones. Thus they remove fear from within them and are able to achieve their goals.
