I am writing this blog post today from the heart. I just want to say how excited I am about the upcoming year. I feel it is going to be an exciting one. There is so much to look forward to. I am aware that the media wants to paint a year of chaos and destruction, but that is only because it good marketing. We are living in a fear based society that craves a good doom and gloom story. Why do we love fear? It is very obvious that most people love the feeling of being afraid or roller coasters and horror movies wouldn’t be so popular. But what makes us want to live in fear? I have heard thrill seekers say that it makes them feel alive and gets their adrenaline flowing.
I realize that there is such a thing as facing our fears. If we are afraid of something and do it we will find out that there was nothing to be afraid of in the first place. But, there is a difference between facing our fears and living in fear. There are those who live in constant fear of the unknown. It seems like every time we get past an “end of the world” date, someone makes up another, keeping us in constant fear. And the funny thing is we fall for it every time. It is as though we are looking at our demise as some kind of thriller movie. If the media and the people who are promoting and making money off of fear would spend the same amount of time and money on promoting love instead of fear, joy instead of sadness and peace instead of war we would have hope instead of fear.
I for one am going to stay out of the fear and stay in love. I refuse to let the media and the promoters of doom and gloom take away my hope. I pray for a world that will stop worrying, stop being afraid, and stop the chaos that is causing separation. I pray that we will come together as one consciousness and change the doom to hope, the gloom to light, and ultimately the fear to love. I pray that this year will bring us closer than we have ever been in the past, that we would see that our differences are what make us the same, and that we ultimately all want the same things in life, peace, love and happiness.
Happy New Year to you all,
