The worldwide situation brings us a great chance to observe what is happening, unless we continue to deny fear as we do with so many of our emotions and pretend we are so “mature”, whilst we simply may know how to hide and not show and share what we feel.
Times of uncertainty bring up fear. And out of fear comes survival mode. People argue much more easy, people get aggressive …..
So how can we deal with it ? What is the big challenge and the big price to win?
When fear shows, don’t try and deny it, don’t try and tell it it’s unnecessary…. let’s do our best to embrace it, to realise it’s here to protect us and to walk with it every step. Reminding ourselves it’s ok.
Fear does not make me a person who does not love, not as long as I can bring awareness to my fear. I will share about my fear, letting others now, I feel vulnerable and fragile. I will ask for support from those whom I trust and feel safe with.
Will you share your last bag of pasta with me, or will you be fear driven by your own survival instincts?
As in every “war”, the danger brings people together if they share about their fears, if they don’t hide fear behind aggression and anger and let survival reactions dominate. Maybe we stop creating war once we totally learnt how to be together in love and awareness that we all need each other.
For now, it looks like humanity is not yet ready, but we can learn from the present experience.
- Learn to be caring about each other,
- learn to practise awareness of your emotions,
- learn to walk with fear as if it’s a child that you are taking care of
- learn to ask for what we long for
- learn to trust
- learn to open our hearts (we live in a society with so much hugs and kisses and so little real encounters…..)
Lets us the challenge.
