Why Do We Fear Love?

Updated on January 11, 2012

Do as I say not as I do. Is that merely a set up to trick you? To change your own line of thinking into someone else's conceived notions of how one should behave? Why not reclaim? Your values are just that, YOUR values. Why must you explain? If your heart says it's wrong and it's not the fear talking, then chances are, it's right. Two wrongs may not make a right, but they do make a left. A left into a narrow mind of only believing what others believe to be true. Doesn't that sound naive? Why not ask your own spirit what you should believe? Why have we become so naive? Instead of believing in what we want, we let fear choose our destiny. Does fear run your life? Chances are, it does. Doubt stems from fear. Anger stems from fear. Lust stems from fear. Everything opposite of love, stems from fear. We only live on two higher emotions; Love and Fear. Love being God, goodness, righteousness, faith, hope, joy, peace... and Fear, well, that's all opposite. Why would one choose to live in fear? Is it really a choice or a lack of better understanding? Could it be that we were raised to know no different or to simply not question the difference? Who's to say that what we actually learn in school is correct? Why do we get punished for questioning it? It seems as though we are taught at a young age, to not question anything, go with the flow, and be followers. Its the outsiders, the one's with questions, the ones who don't follow that get shunned out from the world and have little to no friends. Are you prepared for that? Did you swim up stream against the current or simply follow the flow of everything else?

Ever notice how most T.V. commercials sell us things based on our emotion of fear? Think about it. The one's for the pills name common symptoms that most people have that have little to do with the actual pills purpose to trick people into asking for it. Then they list off a side effect list that, to me, seems much more worse then the actual symptoms in the first place. How about fast food chains? They always show groups of people having a good time. Healthy, fit, younger men and women having the times of their lives. Are they selling us food or a popularity contest? Look at beer commercials... They make it seem as though you HAVE to drink to HAVE a GOOD time. Over time, watching these commercials over and over again, you believe it. Anytime you hear "party" you think "booze". They brainwashed you into thinking you need something you never needed at all. I find very few people from the age of 21 to 40 that don't drink... Even fewer that never drank at all. Isn't that scary?

Why must we follow trends? Why must we drink or use drugs to be "cool" and have a good time? Why must we listen to certain music that's readily available on mainstream? Why must we believe we need doctors? Why must we believe there's no God or higher purpose to life? Why must we watch the news everyday? Why must we think and do as Hollywood does? Why must we watch T.V.? Why must we be told what is right and want is wrong? Why must we live a life of fear, hate, and bitterness instead of love?

My guess it was all in design to make us followers that never reach out and question purpose or life, that never questions why we do what we do or why we are taught what we are taught in school and to believe that one line of thinking is correct and the other is wrong. We as humans, live on only two emotions; Love and Fear. Love is not a controlling emotion, but Fear is. Ask yourself this... Why do I fear love?
