Such a harsh word ignorance is but one that must be acknowledged for the power it holds. For ignorance is the landscape of our fears. This landscape of unknowing can seed, grow and harvest amazing scenarios of untruths, unjustified worries and can wreck all sorts of havoc in one’s life. It applies to all aspects of our days, nothing escapes its grasp.
I was reminded of this recently, in regards to one of the silliest of worries that I had concocted about a year ago, something that pestered and festered and eventually was hidden away, hopefully forgotten but no, an event occurred that brought this silly little issue to the fore once more and lo and behold, in being shown how things were, my fear was instantly vaporized under my newfound knowledge.
Fear is a hungry beast that quickly and greedily feeds on ignorance and I’ve written before of the two choices we are constantly faced with each day, of how these choices affect our decisions and our reactions. Only Love Is Real.
Love is a slower feasting, one where each morsel is appreciated for what it is and savoured for its uniqueness.
We as humans are an odd lot at times, and most unfortunately, ignorance is applied to much larger and pressing issues than mine and can and does get taken to extremes, hence the troubles of our world. All we can do is our part, the part in which we take the time to investigate and learn our truths in anything and everything that affects us and those around us.
You each know where your “hot spots” reside and where you need to release fears bred of ignorance. Ask, research, understand. That is all we can truly do. Your world, the world will be a better place if you do.
