Nothing to fear but fear itself

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

All too often we don’t realize, and more often take for granted, the unity of the ego, or conscious mind, and the self, or unconscious mind. The ego has wants, desires credit, conjures the illusion of needs, feels jealousy, hate, discrimination, etc. Whereas the self is led purely by your Spirit, the Source, the Universe, God (take your pick), and only knows love, kindness, creativity, euphoria, etc. I perceive what I’m speaking of as the bond that mends those two levels of consciousness together.

Most people don’t have a full grasp on the idea that living life to their fullest extent requires harmony between the two consciousnesses. The yin cannot exist without the yang; peaks cannot exist without valleys; light without dark; heat without cold; so on and so on.

Or it might be that you’d rather play video games than to clean the kitchen.

In my opinion people try too hard to rationalize and label what they’re feeling, like this dummy-land scenario...
