LondonFrontispieceWhat is the use of living
if it be not to strive for noble causes
and to make this muddled world a better place
for those who will live in it after we are gone? Winston Churchill
Dundee, October 9th, 1908.
Franklin D. Roosevelt and Sir Winston Churchill were cut from the same cloth. They were both wise leaders that tried to avoid war but were forced into war.
My favorite quote of Sir Winston Churchill is as follows;
“IF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH HELL, KEEP GOING !”
FDR’s quote was regarding the “Great Depression” (heading)
Both men sought peace but were forced into war.
I know that many people on our planet are going through HELL. Countless people are struggling to cope with grief and sorrow. Nearly everyone has been forced into feelings of vulnerability. Feeling vulnerable creates emotional fear. Fear is a mind killer. Fear clouds our thoughts and fear is a primal instinct. Fear overrides our rational thought process. It is a survival instinct. Fight or flight, kill or be killed, and those emotions / instincts help to keep us alive.
My initial plan in writing this post today was going to be a negative post about the ANTI- VACCINATION PEOPLE. I even considered making comments like, ” at least it is the stupid non vaccinated people who are mostly dying.” I talked to my wife about it last night and she just told me, “that is not what people need to hear right now.” So I slept on it last night and she was correct. The unvaccinated and ANTI-VAXERS are enduring a basic Primal Fear Response. They do not know who to trust and there is so much “Bull Shit” information floating around it should be little wonder that there are millions of people world wide that are confused. There are the conspiracy theorists and micro chips and mind control motivations. SO THEY ARE AFRAID ! WELL, MOST OF THE PLANET IS AFRAID ! After hearing about the ability of the virus to mutate over and over, it is FRIGHTENING !
NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS ! If you are a “spiritual” person of any faith, and if you believe in the concept of a “soul” as I do, souls do not die. Only the creator of the universe can destroy a soul. So if a person believes in reincarnation or resurrection, I believe with all my heart and soul that we will be reunited with our loved ones. But for those of us that are here, we need to work on our own Karma, and faith and confidence in the Almighty Creator of the Universe. I hate tests !
BUT THIS ALL IS A TEST ! WE ARE BEING TESTED ! WHO ARE WE ? WHO ARE YOU ? AND WHO AM I ?
I AM JUST A DUMB GUY TRYING TO MAKE HEADS OR TAILS OF IT ALL !
I KNOW THAT POSITIVE ENERGY IS WHAT WE NEED TO GIVE TO EACH OTHER. WE NEED TO BE KIND TO EACH OTHER.
SORRY, that’s all I’ve got,
One thought on “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. FDR”
marc… you say: “that’s all I’ve got.” But that is a lot…!
It is a pity there are those amongst us who thrive on chaos… on agony… but they have always been here… and shall continue to be here, as long as there is a need for a TEST…!
