Fear and Desire
EMOTIONAL EMERGENCY KIT: FEAR
In today’s media-influenced world, there is increased distrust of governments and their representative politicians, as well as trepidation regarding the global economy. A growing number of ordinary citizens do not feel as safe as they once did, and some are even turning to ‘emergency preparedness’ in its many forms, ranging from investing in gold, to storing food and water, and more. Worry, fear, and desire seem to be on the rise as growing concerns about an uncertain future continue to escalate. Although the world has access to much information regarding ‘bare bones’ physical survival, it generally lacks wisdom on what is perhaps far more important: Emotional Survival. Thus, an e-book on Fear as well as on Desire — what they are, and what they are not, plus how to approach or even transcend these emotions altogether — would make a good addition to any ‘First Aid’ or ‘Emergency’ kit.
As the author asserts: “To live in fear is quite different from living with it. One can either be a victim or an owner. As a person learns to live with fear, gradually they learn to live with less and less of it, and soon discover they have a much greater tolerance for ambiguity than they ever could have imagined. An incredible inner safety then prevails no matter what’s going on in the world. Everyone has this (latent) capacity. It simply needs to be developed, and it’s easily learned. Instead of adrenaline, one enjoys a new reality of endorphins.”
EMOTIONAL EMERGENCY KIT: DESIRE
Although the world recognizes that people will often say and do anything for money, it does not appear to see that ‘social approval’ is just as much of a powerful motivator in the lives of most people, who habitually 'sell out' in order to gain the approval of others. This dialogue-ebook is intended to help strengthen the readers’ own awareness by presenting a clear-cut example of the negative effect approval-seeking can have upon the mind.
