Fear Is Spiritual Poison

Mike's Common Sense

Many people today are living in a constant state of fear. They are afraid of going to hell, they are afraid of terrorist attacks, they are afraid of governmental control, they are afraid of the economy, they are afraid of the price of oil, etc. Very few people realize that we are, and always have been conditioned to be fearful. The major news networks are nothing more than government run fear mongers, and it is impossible to watch them without becoming fearful, or depressed. Your major religions are always telling you that you will burn in hell for all eternity if you don't follow their dictates. The average person's anxiety level is maxed to the limit.

There is a reason for this. Governments, and religions have always acted hand in hand to keep the population under control. There is no easier way to control people than to keep them living in fear.

Fear is spiritual poison. Fear closes down the natural pathways between man and the divine within. With these pathways closed down man is nothing more than an animal, instead of the spiritual being he truly is. There is a reason religions liken their followers to sheep; they want you to merely follow along and contribute to them, not to grow spiritually, or to be different.

If you truly want to grow spiritually, and if you truly want to be free, you need to escape the bonds of fear. Life is to be lived, and experienced; this cannot not be done while living in fear.

As long as you feel you have something to lose; your life, your house, your soul, etc. you will be subject to fear. Realize you have nothing to lose, and fear loses it's grasp.

Then you can reconnect with the divine and realize you have everything.

Make sure you listen to/read STATE OF FEAR.

Add, fear of losing someone you love and fear of losing your job to the list.

I will google State of Fear. My 350 word essay would have become a 1000 word essay if I mentioned all of our fears, that's why I used etc. Spiritually we never lose loved ones, they just can't be seen with the physical eyes.

I sent this hub to my sister a day ago as she could relate to what you are saying about fear. She met a businessman in Florida, and became briefly involved, but unknown to her is an alcoholic, and lost control, so he went to his minister for counseling, and instead of the church sending him to AA or for medical treatment, they put the fear of God and hell in him, told him he cannot go out and socialize and be tempted, sleep with a woman before marriage as its a mortal sin, and must be devoted to the church. Its unreal how a church can control a human being, and this guy is in his early 60's!

Good article!

Hi Marie! By and large religions are not way showers, but populace controllers; and they do their controlling through fear. I hope your sister liked my article.

You did it again, Mike. Excellent post! Still, one must be careful to watch what is going on around us. What would be the trick to listening to the news, but not letting it get us uupset?

Hi Adnohr! We should always be aware, but we should not live in fear. The controllers want us to be living in fear.
