Fear has been coming up a lot in conversations at work, in the discussions that I overhear at lunch in the open area at the food mall, and even in interviews on the radio.
What is going on in the world that is causing people to focus on the fear instead of on the goodness that is happening in many places? Is it a hysteria that is being promoted by the media? By religion? By politics? Or, is it that great, group consciousness that realizes that there is a big change happening. It is so big that no one really has a handle on it, and yet, everyone is feeling it.
One of my teachers said that fear is the absence of faith. Not the religious kind of faith, although that counts, but faith in a greater existence beyond what we know on Earth.
