How to be responsibly responsive and dissipate your fear
In Part 1 of this blog article I said that most people will be experiencing just two feelings now that Donald Trump has begun his Presidency. Fear and excitement. If you’re feeling predominantly fearful (anger, frustration, and resentment are reflections of fear) then you’ll need to be in full control of your responsive actions if you want to stand any chance of changing the reality that’s disturbing you. You must have a responsible mindset if you are to be effectively response-able.
Feelings are independent energy forms that alert your conscious mind to information about to transfer directly from your inner (spiritual) self. They often act as “emotional-signals,”[i] telling you that you’re creating emotional energy within you. And that emotional energy has a desire to be expressed. If you’re feeling excited by events then you are in an excellent mental position to Continue reading “Now Trump’s in, What do I do About My Fear? (Part 2 of 2)”
Do you fear for the world and its children—in light of the horrendous acts of violence committed by religious fundamentalists?
Have you lost faith in your Faith—in view of the latest and historic abuse carried out by those entrusted with the care of our children?
Why do we create such abhorrent events for ourselves? What makes us perpetuate such violent acts, and how should we respond to violence in order to remove it from our co-created reality?
The quick answer to the why, is that we are creating such events in order that we do something about one of our most pernicious beliefs entrenched within our collective psyche—that, as individuals, we believe we are disempowered.
The historic and still pervasive abuse of children, spouses, other life forms, and the Earth itself, together with the escalating acts of terrorism, might suggest that we are all off to “hell in a handcart.” This may well be the case if we do not deal with the beliefs we hold that can no longer be part of our psychological structure. Violent events are created by the disempowered. For violence to diminish in our reality, we must first address the belief that our individual power has no worth.

My 95-year-old mother-in-law has a phrase she uses for when she thinks you are making fun of her – “Are you poking Charlie at me?” – she will say. It probably originated as a latter-day distortion of the verbally less genteel “poke bogey,” a colloquialism for “poking fun” in use at the turn of the 20th Century. Charlie Hebdo has a long history of poking Charlie at religious and political institutions. Satirical journalism is what the Charlie Hebdo magazine is all about. But is satire good for us, even if it offends another’s beliefs?
The answer to the above question is ‘yes’—as I will explain later in this three-part post. First though, let’s look into the reaction of the majority of human beings to this Parisian Mass Event other than the initial abhorrence.
Much of the furor in response to the events in Paris of the last week revolves around the issue of “Freedom of Speech,” or as the French have it, “Liberté d’expression.” This post goes into the spiritual origins of this issue and how our Freedom of Expression is a sacrosanct principle underpinning our existence in the physical world. In the spirit of the theme of this Blog, I will also attempt to uncover the deeper message contained within this and other “acts of terrorism” of late as it pertains to our Shift in consciousness.
